My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Georgia
I received a speeding ticket last night for 65 in a 35. I'm new to the area, and would have never guessed a 6 lane road in a commercial area (in front of a Best Buy!) would be a 35 MPH zone.
Anyway, the nice officer said I did an improper lane change too. I stated that I had signaled, looked to be sure i could change lanes, as I needed to get over to the dedicated right turn lane, and then went. I asked what was improper about that, and he said that "Because it was". He didn't cite me for it, but he wrote on the speeding citation that he had warned me for improper lane change. I'm gonna go see the judge and ask for a reduced sentance, but this additional statement may hurt me.
I admit I didn't know it was only a 35 zone, therefore I was wrong. But the lane change thing bothers me.
I have searched, but I can't find the definition of what defines "Improper lane change". Any ideas?
