Re: Unsafe Left Turn at a T-Intersection
The failure to provide proof of insurance and assuming it was cited as VC 16028(a) and marked on the citation as "correctable", it can be dismissed upon:
1) providing proof of insurance (showing he was covered at the time the citation was issued) to the court clerk; and
2) Payment of a $25 administrative fee.
The other violation, I am not sure what you mean by: "the cop was practically already on the right lane of Garvey".
And where was your dad at the time?
As for adjacent intersections, other traffic, at the time he turned or much later, it really isn't relevant. If he was in a situation where he cut the cop off or turned in front of him, then that is all the traffic that is needed to qualify the allegation that a violation was committed.
You should post the code section # he was cited for and explain ^that^ bit and we'll go from there.
Keep in mind though, in spite of his age and your unquestionable desire and enthusiasm, to "fight this for him", you cannot do that. Only an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California can represent him, otherwise, he is the one who will have to appear, make any and all requests, and argue his case in front of the judge if need be!
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
