Good afternoon. Yes, if you had to take evasive action and/or it was necessary to go into that lane to avoid the accident, then it would be a defense and a justification, for crossing over the double line. If you can convince the court of that, you can fight this. Seeing how you were alone and do not have any witnesses, you would need to testify on your own behalf and likely want to bring in visual aids, to show the Judge the traffic conditions and what happened. You also want to attack the credibility of the officer and their ability to actually see what happened and how long they were observing you for.
