Customer Question
Solid yellow line and...

Solid yellow line and parallel dotted yellow line in middle of two way street...they culminate in a marked left hand turn lane which has a white line marked by an opening. When may I enter the turn lane?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?

Az and no

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

Only if I think I am not totally at fault. I believe the other person entered early, whereas I waited for the 'real' entrance to the left turn lane.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I hold some responsibility but don't believe 100%

I'm sorry to hear this happened. What were you cited for? Failure to yield? Incorrect turn?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
