Yet Another Stupid Ticket

I did it again. Its my second in 7 months. I was goin through a downtown area of newberg hittin all the greenlights. the last light had traffic stacked up so i got in the left lane and continued doin the speed limit. the light turned green as i got there and i was gonna switch lanes because the one i was in was a turn only lane a half block up. a cop in the far right lane gunned it and got in the lane i was signalling to change into. so i had to wait longer and was watching him to see if he was gonna take off. he settled back and looked like he was lettin me over so i changed over. the solid white. so he pulls me over and asks, "that lane is really handy for going around traffic, huh." i agreed and he was bein nice as he took my info. came back with a improper lane change ticket. i was confused. if he hadnt gunned it and gotten in the way i would have been fine. stupid cop. now i gotta go to court and fight it..i was thinkin that might not have happened if i was drivin the 3 instead of the civic.....bored useless pigs

Well personally I hate it when people go down the inside lane and go past everyone waiting inline. Why do you think the left lane was clear? Because it is for turning and everyone else knows it.

How many times I have been stuck in traffic then some joker flys past my inside then trys to cut back in again. I say good job Mr. Policeman. Maybe if they keep handing out tickets you will learn some common sense, and realize that noone is waiting in the left lane for a reason.

Re: Yet Another Stupid Ticket

A-phukkin-men. I hate when people do that shit. I was in an awful traffic jam once, all lanes of a highway blocked and they dumped us into this small town. The traffic lights were a mess. People were driving up onto the curb and INTO peoples yards to pass everyone in line. It pissed me off so much.

That was the end of it right there, That's where you should have said, I appologise I was initally going to turn but then noticed it opened up and wanted to go straight instead. No wonder why you got a ticket.

That's no excuse, if there are 3 lanes of traffic, and only two of them have like 40 cars in them waiting then it's not too hard to figure out why they are waiting and not using the extra lane.

I mean come on, it's common sense.

Just like it's common sense not to do something illegal when a cop is right behind you watching. He was not letting you out, he was waiting to see if you were going to break the law right in front of him, so he could give you a ticket.

I believe that is the radar detector people install so they know when a cop is pointing a radar gun at them. They are illegal in most places.
