I made a left turn and noticed a police crusier in the oncoming traffic lane. While I was turning he slowed down to an almost a stop and stared at me making the turn. I got nervous and missed the gear, which caused me to make the turn really slow. The crusier was parked in the oncoming traffic lane still watching me, so I felt he wanted something from me like an explanation for my slow turn. I pulled into the left lane becide him and opened my window to ask the officer is anything was wrong. He told me to turn off the car where I was and gave me a ticket for diving in oncoming traffic. The roads were covered with snow and I missed the lines on the road indicating traffic direction. I did drive into an oncoming traffic, lane, but I did so because the officer distracted me and made me feel like I needed to stop.
Is there any defence for my actions?
Anyway, if you feel that you didn't commit the traffic violation, then fight the ticket.
Choose option (3), plead not guilty.
Request a date for trial.
If English isn't your first language and you aren't very fluent and don't feel confident, then request an interpreter.
When the notice of date of trial arrives by mail, request full disclosure.
This could take many months, almost a year. If that happens, then you have other options.
Read the many topics in this forum.
The section Courts and Procedures has a lot of ideas.
I did commit the traffic violation, but was it all my fault?
