Traffic tip Tuesdays: Backing up on a highway

Backing up on a highway

Sec. 21-603: Backing on the highway is not forbidden by law, nor is it negligence to back if a proper lookout and proper warning signals are given and the movement can be made with reasonable safety.

The momentary stopping of a truck in the course of a backing maneuver, in order to permit traffic to pass, would not of itself be negligence as a matter of law.

A driver of an automobile backing into a parking space on a busy street is under a duty to maintain a lookout.
