My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: IL
I was on the intersection where there was 2 right lanes. I was in far right lane. There was a Green Arrow for right turn. Before I took a right turn & checked traffic. there was absolutely no car on my left. I took right turn in right lane. After I finished my turn I checked all my mirror & blind sport & start left signal to change into the left lane. There wasn't any car. again I checked all my mirror & blind sport ..NO car....Then I start changing lane. I was in half way while somebody hit my car on left side almost at the end. it's look like that person was behind me in right lane & he wanted to pass me & he speed up. I was going slow because it was snowing so I start emergency light & stop my car.
I get down from my car to see what happen. I daughter was with my so I checked her first. By the time I call 911, he dial it first. He said according to cop we have to pull our car in McDonald because it wasn't bad accident & we can't block the traffic.
Cop Issue a Ticket "Improper lane change" to me because that person said we got an accident while we both take right turn. I explain the officer that I did checked my blind sport a everything but he said I have to issue a ticket. he was keep telling me that it happen in this weather. it's hard to see....etc.
I want to know that If I checked all the mirrors & blind sport & still I got a ticket. What can I do? I have to appear in court...what will happen?
