Legal Question

Asked on: 10/16/12, 7:38 am

NJ 39:4-123 Improper Left Turn ticket was recieved by my wife. She was coming out of a bank and attempting to make a left turn (crossing the double yellow lines on the road). She was involved in an accident.

Question: She never made the left turn and did not even cross the double yellow lines. After the accident, she reversed and went back into the bank exit waiting in the car for the cops to arrive. The cop gave her the ticket just because she was involved in the accident. The whole road is a business road with double yellow line and the cops normally do not issue tickets for this as many of them do this to go about using the businesses on the road.

Since she did NOT actually make the turn, can we ask for a dismissal on this ground? The turn did NOT happen..period.

Please advise.

Thank you
