What is a improper LEFT TURN-2 WAY?

    The phrase “improper LEFT TURN-2 WAY” means that you are being charged with making an illegal left turn from a two-way street to a two-way street. In such instances, you need to stay just to the left of the center line from and to your turn.

This traffic offense called the ” move over” is nothing more than a money making scheme for New York State praying on innocent people who didn’t do anything wrong issuing them a ticket basically they can’t find it and less they pay for an attorney and that’s expensive so either way you lose. I have read countless numbers of comments from people who got the same ticket and maybe 50% of them were innocent . For me I had to pay because I couldn’t go to New York which is four hours for me and I couldn’t afford an attorney and I didn’t do anything wrong it was raining I slow down that was bumper-to-bumper traffic but yet I still got the ticket . It’s a shame that certain cops are power greedy.

    Joan Doolittle,

    I’m sorry to hear about your experience. Sadly, this law is often used to “catch” motorists rather than other legitimate purposes.
