I think he was just trying to check out my vehicle for identification as later on the road a police car was waiting in the center of the divided section of the highway and followed me then eventually stopped me. The pickup truck was still following and i presume made a statement as it took a while before the police officer came to see me. I admitted to doing the maneuver but i insisted that i did it safely, that there were no collisions, no near miss, no oncoming vehicle and i didn't had to force the pickup truck to slow down to allow me to merge back. So I don't see where the issue was, but I was still given a ticket for careless driving.
As getting this ticket would very likely cost me my career, I contacted a paralegal. He recently called me saying the prosecutor was willing to offer a reduced plea for "Change lane not in safety" for 3 demerits instead of 6 and probably not considered a serious offense. But i am not sure I even want to agree to this.
To my current knowledge my paralegal has not received the various depositions yet, officer or witness. While my job safety is paramount, I don't want to rush and take a plea when I don't believe myself guilty of anything. But I still afraid if i don't take it i might regret it, so i am not sure what's best.
Of course that is just an opinion based on things I've seen in the past.
