The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC has posted a “Frequently Asked Question," or FAQ, on their website that addresses the issue of a motorist waving another through double lane traffic. There are questions of liability if an accident occurs, as well as which driver has the right-of-way.

The FAQ is, “If I’m waiting to turn left and a car waves me through, but it’s not clear and I am in an accident, am I responsible?” and is answered by Attorney Charles Boyk.

Attorney Boyk states, “If there are two lanes of traffic and the other driver is in one lane and waves you through, but a car traveling in the second lane and then strikes your vehicle, you would be deemed at fault.” He also includes other information to motorists that can help them to avoid unnecessary accidents due to misunderstandings on the roadway.
