I live in chandler, ARizona. I got a ticket for failure to obey traffic control device.
I was heading southbound and I wanted to take a U-turn. So I entered a left turn lane. But as soon as I entered the left turn lane, I saw a no u-turn sign. So instead of take a U-turn, I took a left turn and drove into entrance of a building which had tall gates approximately 1500 feet from the road. The driveway had a divider and then a decent space which seemed specifically for making U-turns. So I took a U-turn there, and then took a right turn to head north-bound. Unluckily the building behind the gate was a police station, and a cop's car was behind the gate. He slowly followed me and then stopped me. Gave me a ticket for failure to obey a traffic control device.
First he said that I made a U-turn in a no U-turn sign. When I told him that I made a left turn, then he said that well you might have blocked my car if I had an urgent call. I didnt hear any police siren.
Should I think about contesting it?
