Re: I Received a Citation for Failure to Yield to Oncoming Traffic/ Left Turn Acciden
where you were hit doesn't show anything really. Different speeds and distances apart when you started the turn can result in the other vehicle hitting you anywhere along the length of your car.
, he hit my back passenger door which means that more than half of my vehicle was already in the intersection and i did in fact yield and began my turn when it was safe..
So far, you have said you made a left turn and a person who had right of way ended up hitting you.
I have to presume you were ticketed for failure to yield. Your description of the situation leaves a lot to be desired. First you say the traffic was stopped at a red light but then you say the car that hit you changed lanes and ended up hitting you. Did they all run a red light?
