Cited For An Illegal U-Turn? You Could Have A Valid Defense.

Most drivers cited for turning illegally know that they will be responsible for paying a traffic ticket. Many simply pay the fine because they do not want to, nor have the time, to fight their ticket in court.

But, there may be a defense available that could get your charges dismissed. Perhaps the signage was not clearly posted or simply not visible at all.

Why accumulate points on your license or risk a spike in automobile insurance rates if you didn't do anything wrong?
