    Default No Signal No Replies Unless I'm Being Asked

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA. I saw people forget to use their turn signals when eg turning right. I'll use myself as an eg. If someone recorded me (including police officer), can I get a citation based on a phone recording?

    Failing to use your turn signal is an offense you can get a ticket for.

    If an officer saw you fail to use it they could ticket you. If some random person recorded and reported it your failure you could be ticketed but that person would need to be in court to testify. That isn't going to happen.

    Now, I have to ask, what's with the "eg" in your question?

    Didn't want to type out "for example" but also didn't want to put the periods after the letters?

    I was using myself for an example. While Iím at it Iíll ask: what if that was on off duty officer who recorded me though? And didnít follow me or pull me over in his/her car.

    A citation could be issued for a violation of VC ß22108 which states:

    Any signal of intention to turn right or left shall be given continuously during the last 100 feet traveled by the vehicle before turning.

    However, your question makes no sense. What is this "phone recording" prove? Does this recording identify the driver as well as the violation? Why would the citing officer make a "phone recording" of the violation?

    Keep in mind that there is a big difference between a police officer making an arrest and a citizen making a citizen's arrest pursuant to PC ß837.

    When he testifies in court how is he going to identify the driver? Moving violations in California are given to the driver NOT the registered owner.

    You seem to have an ongoing fear of being recorded and then getting a ticket for it. With the exception of red light cameras and the more rare speed cameras it really just doesn't happen. You need to get over this. When you have an actual legal issue feel free to ask but random "what ifs' are not going to help you.

    We've been down this road before. Yes, there are ways it is possible to be cited or charged based upon a third party report. But, it is highly improbable.
