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?

Question: I recievieved a letter for a failure to obey a traffic control device. (Running a photo enforced red light) from the video it is clear that thedeiver was following a large truck the light turned red while vehicle was already in the cross walk (tires and nose in pedestrian cross walk as it turned) driver proceeded with a right turn as it was unsafe to stop in crosswalk. Photo send to me is of a female of similar build and facial structure wearing large dark sunglasses as well as visor obscuring top of forehead. I sent a letter to court as not guilty based on limited evidence. I have been set a court date in a month. I have the option of hiring an attorney if; I don't the cities attorney will NOT be present at trial (not exactly sure what that means). If you could clarify the role of the cities attorney and advise me if I shou contact an attorney Id appreciate it.

This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the

This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the intersection at my community, there was a school bus coming from the opposite direction (from my right) at the stem of the intersection when I was about to make a right turn. I could have made a turn, but I didn't because I saw the kids along the road to my right. So I waited until the stop arm was extended, and the kids safely boarded the bus, but at the same time another bus pulled up behind the first bus. I proceeded to make a right turn after the stop arm of the first bus was retrieved and the driver starting driving. Now I am worried that I may be in violation because the second bus was right there. I do not know if the second bus had already flashed the red lights.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: That's it. I have not been cited, but I am just worried. I had never had experience stopping for a bus, so I didn';t do it intentionally. As I could not see the stop sign because I was at the intersection, I just didn't know I had to stop.
