My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA
I was in the fast lane talking on my cell phone. Traffic was fairly heavy and under the speed limit. I saw a cop behind me and ended the call but he turned on his lights and got on my tail. Traffic was merging on the right from on-ramps. The left median was wide, at least two lanes wide, and appeared safe, so I immediately pulled to the left. The officer advised me he pulled me over for talking on my cell. He stated in a by the way type fashion that when you get pulled over you need to pull to the right, not the left. He wrote my ticket for the cell phone and "failure to yield right" I got the ticket in the mail which was $489. Any advice would be appreciated, I'm scheduled for an arraignment next week and I'm not sure what to expect. I am guilty of the cell phone violation, but definitely yielded to the PD officer, in what I still believe was a safe manner.
