Q&A - Video Evidence in Defence
I received a ticket in June 2012 while trying to go from a parking lot thru a right hand turn lane into a left turn lane. As I cautiously left the parking lot and almost cleared right hand turn lane a car in the left turn lane abrubtly stopped at yellow light/ I looked to my left and noticed cars backing up in right hand turn lane, I tried to nudge up and clear the lane for the turners and the vehicle in front would not give an inch. I tried to nudge up and may have inadvertently bumped her bumper. She jumped out of her car screaming at me. I asked her to pull up so I could clear the lane. She then jumped back in her car and took off. I continued into the left lane turned and went home. about four hours later a cop showed up with 6 points and $196 in fines. I disputed the ticket and am waiting for court date. The beauty about this is it was under traffic camera and I have a beautiful representation of what happened in HD. I want to give the cop one more chance to make it go away. Any suggestions??
