We see examples of questionable driving actions virtually every day, on every road. Someone changes lane’s in the middle of an intersection. Someone darts through an intersection on a yellow light. It’s annoying. But is it illegal?

Editor’s note: In some cases, the answer is “Not illegal.” It’s a technicality, but the HTA can’t cover every conceivable situation, so in those cases, the HTA is said to be “silent” on the issue. Since it’s not expressly allowed nor is it specifically prohibited under the HTA (yet), it’s technically “not illegal.”
