Good morning. Can you please share with me the code or ordinance which is written on the citation which you were issued?
Yes, that is what I meant and thank you. Based upon what you are charged under, it does not appear that if convicted, you would be assessed and points, on your license. However, it is a moving violation and could appear on your driving record, which MAY result in an increase in insurance. However, if/since this is your first moving violation, your insurance carrier likely has forgiveness program and are going to be focused on accidents, not situations like this. It does carry a fine of around $100 but you can contest this if you want and have defenses to raise. If you do not believe you committed what was alleged, you can certainly contest it.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
