I have been given news that one of our subscribers in the Washington DC area has been struck by a car and injured. At the same incident he was also dealt an expensive traffic infraction ticket. I’m not fresh on all of the details at the moment, but he was evidently in the right and was run down by an inattentive driver; according to my source he was given a ticket because of the lane he was in, I believe the left turning lane, as he was approaching a turn he needed to make.
Does anyone out there have any information regarding possible legal defense in order for him to a) not have to pay the expensive ticket, and probably b) have his injury expenses covered by the driver’s insurance, and c) prove in a court of law his right to his share of the road. I’m not sure if it needs to be specific to the District or not, any advice, information, and contacts would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to post information in the comments section of our blog or email us at Cranked. I’ll post more information when I get proper details.
Thanks in advance
