Is it against the law to delay moving through a traffic

Is it against the law to delay moving through a green traffic light in michigan. I received a ticket for texting and driving...but I was stopped and put the phone down before moving. It delayed me proceeding thru the light when it turned green. I got a ticket, it was for distracted driving (texting while at light, stayed at light after it turned green)..I still went thru the light as did many other cars, and I wasn't texting while driving. I researched Michigan driving laws and see that they say it is illegal to text while in a moving car but it is not illegal to text while stationary. I cannot find if it is illegal to not proceed immediately thru a green light however and am looking for any law that may prevent me from fighting and winning this case.? Could you help with any detailed reaponses?

I took my 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE with 7,700 to the

I took my 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE with 7,700 to the dealership with the engine light on. They said it was the gas cap, which I explained to them was not the case as I had already tried. They said they would run the diagnostics and see.I left the dealership with no engine light on and they had said it was, in fact, the gas cap.I drove 10 minutes, parked the car, came out 5 minutes later and started the vehicle. The engine light was on again.I took it back to the dealership immediately and they then found a faulty gasket that affects emissions which apparently had a factory recall. They sent me on my way saying it would not cause further damage and they would order the part.I called today and they said that, according to the technician, I could drive like this for a year and it wouldn't harm the car, I just wouldn't pass emissions (I am going to be driving 1,000+ miles in the next 2 weeks).Their answers seemed hokey and I also feel no diagnostics were checked the 1st time.

I have received a Courtesy Notice from Santa Clara Count,

I have received a Courtesy Notice from Santa Clara Count, CA.The alleged infraction identified as VC-21801A-IQ: If I file for a "Trial by Declaration", is it sufficient to point out that this statute does not apply? because I was entering from a driveway, and there was no possibility of "vehicles approaching from the opposite direction" ?[21804 might apply]Should I also point out that I did, in fact, yield the right of way?[I stopped in the nearer 'right-bound' lane, and did not enter the left-bound lane, and the car in that lane (a local police car) did proceed without incident/collision; stopping 50 feet later]That is: after looking right, then left, i pulled into the roadway, and checked back to the right (after clearing some visual obstructions) and saw the cop car the left-bound lane; so I braked, the cop and I looked at each other as he passed by (both of us surprised) so I finished entering, and pulled to the right shoulder, and he stopped further up and came back to request license and registration, and the spend several minutes thumbing through his code book looking for the right code, and finally came up with this for "failure to yield".Which is: "21801. (a) The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left orto complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public orprivate property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to allvehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are closeenough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turningmovement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to theapproaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made withreasonable safety."[http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=veh&group=21001-22000&file=21800-21809]"21804. (a) The driver of any vehicle about to enter or cross ahighway from any public or private property, or from an alley, shallyield the right-of-way to all traffic, as defined in Section 620,approaching on the highway close enough to constitute an immediatehazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to that trafficuntil he or she can proceed with reasonable safety."
