HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardFirst here is the LINK to the Code violation. You can read it and see what it says specifically. If the patrol car was in front of the truck, then you are correct there is no way you could have seen it as required by the Code.
If that is true, correct and accurate information, I suggest you will want to tell that to the Judge and state that you have always moved to the other lane, when safe, even before it was a law.
That is really all you can do. If the court still finds you guilty, you will need to plead on the mercy of the court for the minimum fine - it tops out at $500.
