This weekend when I had just turned left at a green light, I got waved over to the side of the road and ticketed by an officer parked on the side of the road at approximately 5:53 it was just getting dark. At the time i had no idea why i had gotten the ticket, other then the officer telling me i was not allowed to turn left at that specific intersection. He also mentioned that the sign was poorly placed. After when the officer left, i decided to park my car and take a closer look at the intersection. From what i could see is that the intersection was still under construction and a "No TURN" sign which was basically inside the intersection.
From then on i had realized that i was unable to see the "No turn" sign while i came into the intersection, while when i was in the intersection i was already focused on the "Advance Left Turn" Sign and for oncoming traffic and pedestrians that may be crossing the intersection.
At the time i was ticketed, i had came into the intersection where there were no pedestrians , and the oncoming traffic just cleared the intersection so i took the chance to turn.
Here are too Pictures to Describe my situation(Taken the day after I got the ticket): http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e2...n69/edited.jpg http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e2...69/edited2.jpg http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e2.../edited3-1.jpg
My Question is, will i be able to dispute this violation, and if so what are my chances of succeeding? My Argument being poorly placed construction sign and Contradicting Traffic Signs.
