What is the name of your state? Massachusetts
I was cited for an illegal U-turn and the ticketing officer suggested that I contest it so it doesn't affect my insurance rates. I appreciate his advice but I'm totally surprised at his suggestion. He said "paying the ticket is an admission of guilt".
Since it was an illegal U-turn, do I have any basis for contesting the ticket? I didn't see the no U turn signs at the point in the road where I was deciding to U-turn when I was parked but from where he pulled me over, they were very clear - I drove right by them when I pulled up to the store (but didn't see them since I wasn't thinking of making a U- turn).
I'd rather not have a second moving violation on my record (If I had known to contest tickets, I certainly would have contested the initial one because I really didn't think I was speeding!).
I'm confused and would appreciate advice.
