St Mary’s County — Warm Weather Reminder of Two Maryland Transportation Laws

By Alpert Schreyer on May 9, 2013

Maryland Transportation LawsWith the arrival of warm weather, vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic has increased.  As reported by, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office motor units are being deployed to keep Maryland’s highways safe for all those who use them.  They are asking St. Mary’s County residents to join in their commitment to safety on our roads.

Tips have been received by the sheriff’s office that during the afternoon rush hour, motorists are using the turning lane to move more quickly to the next traffic light and they are speeding through parking lots to gain advantages.  Drivers fly through a bowling lane’s parking lot, for example, to turn at Millstone Landing.

From the St. Mary’s County Traffic Safety Unit and the personal injury attorneys at the firm of Alpert Schreyer comes the following reminder of two Maryland Transportation laws:

  • Article 21-201 (a) (2) — Obeying required traffic control devices — Drivers who approach intersections where traffic control devices have been installed are not permitted to drive off the highway across private property in order to avoid the device. Punishment = $90.00 fine and one point unless this violation contributes to an accident in which case fines and points are increased.
  • Article 21-309 (d) — Driving on roadways that have lanes — Every traffic control device specifying drivers to use a designated lane must be used, directions must be obeyed when lanes designate traffic to move in one particular direction.  Punishment = $90.00 fine and one point unless this violation contributes to an accident in which case fines and points are increased.

More information about St. Mary’s County Safety projects may be obtained by contacting Sergeant Michael Butler at (301) 475-4200.

Understanding Maryland transportation law is no guarantee that drivers will obey those laws.  Knowledge of the law cannot prevent the recklessness of humans.  If you or a family member has been hurt in a pedestrian accident that was the fault of the carelessness of someone else, contact the experienced St. Mary’s County personal injury accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer.  Please contact us online or call (844) 632-7274 to discuss the details of your case at no charge.
