Failure to Keep Right

A driver is guilty of a motor vehicle offense if he or she does not drive a vehicle as closely as possible to the right edge or curb of the roadway, unless it is a one-way street, it is impractical to travel on that side of the roadway, or if the driver is overtaking or passing another vehicle.

A driver who is convicted of failing to keep to the right may be subject to a fine not less than $52, nor more than $202. If the offense occurs in an area of highway construction, then the fines are doubled. A driver will be assessed two points for the offense of failing to keep right.
