Re: Accident ( Improper Right Turn charge)

Oh, also could I ask the police officer if he checked whether the signal lights of the truck were functional, after the collision occurred and if he made note of it?

Re: Accident ( Improper Right Turn charge)

GOOGLE MAP.jpg I read through the statement I made to the police officer. I told him that I pulled briefly behind the truck (2 seconds). Didn't see a signal so I figured it was going straight. I signaled and pulled to the right of the truck. (The truck was in the left lane) The light turned green a...
