Client was pulled over on her twenty-first birthday for crossing the center line one time to avoid an accident with a semi. Attorney Adam D. Stolte argued that client should not have been stopped in the first place, not to mention being charged with DUI for two reasons. For starters, Kansas statutes permit crossing the centerline to avoid an accident. Secondly, DUI caselaw also permits drivers to leave their lane to avoid an obstruction. Because of the possible accident with the semi caused client to leave her lane and cross the centerline, the prosecutor dropped the case without the need for a trial.
