PG County Cop - May 7, 2010, 04:16 PM

Anyone here one? I've tried looking up a illegal left turn ticket to see if it carries points but have been unsuccessful. So does anyone know?

The charge is TS-21-201(a1)

Thanks

Is it a appear to court or pay the fine? Not a PG county cop but that may determine your answer.

Nah. Just go to court and plea guilty. They'll give you a fine + court cost, no points.

That is unless you were making some kind or reckless left turn.

Court's don't assign points in most states the department of motor vehicles does.

Judge can dictate whether those points will or won't be assigned.

It is a pay or don't pay and go to court. I'm not fighting the fact I pulled a dumb move and disobeyed the sign, I just would not like the points if at all possible.

I think $90 is a bit much for a illegal left turn though....ugh!

Go to court. Say the sun was in your eyes or something and you didn't see the No-Left Turn Sign.
Judge will probably give you a fine reduction + court cost + no points, or maybe even a PBJ.
Keep your nose clean for 6 months and you'll be fine.

Or, conversely - 2 weeks before the trial, write in for a continuation. 80% chance the cop doesn't show up for the 2nd appearance. You automatically win! Case dismissed.
