Traffic Law

Traffic laws set speed limits and impose various requirements meant to ensure the safety of every driver. These laws dictate when to yield and who to yield to, when a person can and cannot make turns, and how they must interact with fellow drivers. Traffic laws are enforced through various citations and tickets, as well as by the tallying of points on a driver's record that could result in the loss of their license if found to be a consistently negligent driver. Traffic laws may also apply to bikers and pedestrians who share the road with motor vehicles.
