improper left turn ticket

Unread post by valleypark1 on

Hey im a taxi driver asking for some advice i got a ticket for a left turn that I made from john st on to Richmond st west. I was in the top lane maybe 10-15 feet behind the line and i picked up a customer at this point the light was red. So I got my customer and he asked me to make a left turn to head towards Bathurst st. I checked my blind spot signaled and when the light turned green I moved over in front of the turning lane to make a left turn(no cars in the left lane at this point). So my question is should I fight this ticket or is it my fault and I should just pay for it. Can anybody help thanks.

What exactly was written on the face of the ticket? The alleged offence and the HTA section number?

John St heading north has two lanes, Lane 1 is for left turns and Lane 2 is for straight-through traffic. Richmond St has three lines going westbound. A proper left turn would be from John St Lane 1 to Richmond St Lane 1.

Based on your original post, it's not very clear; What exactly did you do? Which lanes were you turning from and into?
