  1. Speeding Tickets: Re: Speeding, 30 in a 25, in Knoxville, Tennessee

    I contacted the City of Knoxville Traffic Engineering Division and they said "According to our files, I did not find any studies involving Hillcrest Dr."

    I'm also trying to get a copy of the...
  2. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: School Speed Limit Sign Assembly

    Typically I would never design a sign as you describe. It would be one or the other plaques, not both. Do you have photos of all of the signs leading up to where you were pulled over?

    Also, make...
  3. Speeding Tickets: Re: Speeding 30 in a 25, Knoxville Tennessee

    Failure to Yield: Re: Maine's Move Over Law

    I think you should read the original post again.

    Sounds like just headlights and a turn signal (single blinker).

    Also, I would find it hard to believe that a single turn signal would be...
  5. Speeding Tickets: Re: Speeding 30 in a 25, Knoxville Tennessee

    Yeah, I'm not familiar with discovery procedures. I searched online and found a previous case where a woman in Oakridge was found guilty of speeding and tried to raise a defense about the city not...

    Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Making a U-Turn on a Red Light

    You'll have a tough time winning this. I looked at the location and there are signs everywhere that read "No Turns".

    Can you provide the exact location?
  9. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Allegedly Ran a Red Light Right Turn on a "No Right Turn on Red Street"

    Take a current photo of that intersection. The google street view is from 2013. The tree is most likely larger now and could be covering the sign.

    Other Violations: Re: Running a Steady Red Light

    go and record video of the lights in operation. The first traffic light should give you about 4 seconds of yellow time if the road is signed for 45mph.

    Can you explain exactly what happened? I'm confused by your post. Were you facing a steady green signal when you made your left turn?

    There are many factors that go into roadway design and the speed limit (horizontal & vertical curves, sight distances, pedestrians, adjacent parking, number of entrances, etc...). The point I was...
  16. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Left Turn Onto Plaza Across Two Sets of Double Yellow Lines

    That looks like 4 to 6 feet to me, based on the width of a typical lane being 11 to 12 feet or a car being around 5'9" wide.

    Following Too Closely: Re: How to Contest Following (an Officer) Too Close

    Assuming it was dry, 100 yards seems fine to me. I've always used the 3 second rule for following. 60mph is 88fps, so 264feet. less than 300ft. Seems safe to me.

    Signage is adequate.

    It looks like they are restricting left turns from the ramp because of the short distance to merge over 3 lanes. Most likely there have...
  24. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Fighting VC 21461 a for Re-Entering Freeway from an Exit Lane

    By taking the exit ramp, you've already complied with the sign. You have exited the highway.

    By the bridge you are on what's called a "C-D Road" collector-divider.
