Ugh. My first time being pulled over and it's over something so ridiculous.

So I just did a little grocery shopping at the Wal-Mart by my place. I was on my way back, reached the 4-way intersection stop by my house. I stop and I see a cop on the opposite side front of me. I thought this cop was going straight because his signal lights were not on. So I figured it would be safe to go after he goes. It turns out this cop is in the turn lane and turns left. I already went forward but immediately stopped as I saw him turning. He gives me an "are you crazy?!" look and I mouth out "Sorry!" It was an honest mistake and I was highly embarrassed.

I continued forward and sure enough, that cop reappeared right behind me. He didn't have to flash his lights for me to know I was getting pulled over. At this point, I was basically at my house.

He comes to my window and I'm telling him I'm sorry, it was a genuine mistake, I did not see his signal lights activated and he told me he was in the turn lane.. which is a really terrible justification, in my opinion; the signal light is an active indicator while the lane is a passive one.
He takes my license and I'm both nervous and relaxed. Relaxed because I honestly didn't know what I did wrong/didn't think a genuine misinterpretation could garner harsh punishment and nervous because I got pulled over by a cop for the first time.

About ten minutes later, he walks back with my driver's license with a ticket. "Failure to stop at a stop sign intersection," he says. "Wait, but I did stop!" I reply confused. "I know, but you went while I was still making a turn which is basically the same thing." he tells me. A part of me wanted to debate this, but if this man could see ticketing me over this fit, he could easily escalate it for just as little. *Sigh* So I signed and took the ticket; went on my way.

I knew my ass should have walked. Angry

BHM, what say you? Justified or not? I did stop at the intersection to which the cop even acknowledged!

that's bullshyt.  of my top 50 things i hate that other drives do, not using their turn signal is #1.  it is the most blatant disrespect to other drivers.

but i am confused as to how u thought he was going straight if he was in the left turning lane?  he probably did it on purpose.

I didn't even realize it was the turning lane until HE told me. When I see drivers looking to turn, I check for a turn signal!

I don't even know. He said the court will send me a notice detailing the amount.

I'm so tempted to dispute but I'm afraid of going to court, being denied my contesting, and having the ticket raise even further in price.

Ugh. Here I am budgeting my life trying to save and now I might have to blow a chunk over this.

so he was directly across from you, he was turning and you started to proceed into the intersection before he cleared it?
