You Must Drive on the Right of the Highway in Missouri

Posted: Mar 06, 2012

Unfortunately a client of mine received a ticket in Phelps County Missouri for “failure to drive on right half of roadway where roadway was of sufficient width.”  As it happened, my client was fresh off buying a new car.  Although he had the papers from the dealership, he was a bit paranoid about driving the car with only the temp tags, so he was going the speed limit.  He was therefore surprised when he was pulled over.  The Deputy asked him to step back into the patrol car where she wrote the ticket.

My client was astounded and upset and when he called me, he asked, “Is it illegal to drive on the left side of the road?”  And the answer is YES – in most circumstances, you must return to the right side of the roadway after you have passed.  The kicker?  It’s a Class C misdemeanor and will cost you two points on your license.

Missouri Statute 304.015 states

Upon all public roads or highways of sufficient width a verhicle shall be driven upon the right half of the roadway, except as follows:

1.  When overtaking and passing another vehicle . . .

2.  When placing a vehicle in position for and when such vehicle is lawfully making a left turn . . .

3.  When the right half of a roadway is closed to traffic while under construction or repair.

4.  Upon a roadway deisgnated by local ordinace as a one-way street and marked or signed for a one-way traffic.

A lawyer may be able to help you keep this ticket off your record and avoid the points.  If you have a ticket from the Missouri Highway Patrol, give me a call or fill out our Estimate Form.
