Customer: My name is***** was just given a citation
for 257.636, Improper Passing which the officer could not clearly explain to me and when I looked it up I dont think I should have received this ticket... so I'm just trying to understand when it is and isn't applicable
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Sure: I was going home, on my street (its a dead end circle at the end my house is the last on the left), the car in front of me slows to almost a halt turning to the right as if to turn into a driveway, drives past and is still to the right at this point I am waiting but unsure what the driver is trying to do. Then I pass to the left (no passing lane on this street) and as I am clearing the car I hear a thud on my right rear. I come out to inspect the driver has hit my right rear door and scratched my bumper. She claims she was turning to the left but it was very unclear to me regarding that. The officer who comes to the scene hears her side of the story along with damage, is barely interested to hear mine, and then with all the details of both drivers goes into his car to file the report. He comes back out with a ticket in hand for me, cannot clearly explain the rule I was thought to be breaking and had not even inspected the damage on my car before handing me the ticket
