My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I was travelling on a road which has two lanes going in each direction. I was in the far right lane approaching an intersection that became a right turn only lane, so in an effort to keep going straight I made a lane change to the lane next to me (about 200 feet before the intersection). I was pulled over immediately for violating the "Right Turn Only" sign (violation of code 22101). The lanes were not separated by a solid line, so I felt that this was okay. Additionally, the documentation in violation code 22101 states in part (a) that traffic control devices are erected adjacent to an intersection to regulate or prohibit turning movements AT such intersections. Since my lane change was prior to the intersection and was not at, in the middle of, or after the intersection, and since I did not cross lanes on a solid line (as there was no solid line), is my action still violating this code?
