Unhappy What a shame:

Yesterday I was broadsided by a lady that ran a light and my 1970 was totaled. I am in mourning.........

Get this: In Nebraska if you are turning left, it doesn't matter what happened. You get the ticket. After I did, the cop said someone else could be going 80 mph and run a red lite and hit you, if you were making a left turn... it is your fault and you get the ticket.
Has anyone else heard of this law? It must be on the books since he ticketed me.
Believe me I am one Pi**ed off guy. For getting the ticket and for losing my '70. Any lawyers out there that would care to help me on this one???

That does suck, Larry! Sorry to hear about your loss. As far as the law goes, my dad used to be a cop, I could ask him if you want me to.

That would be great. I need all the help I can get on this one.
I hate to let her walk away after totaling my baby.

Well I know Shasteen in Lincoln. I think he kind of deals in injuries, but that probably makes him pretty savvy in traffic accidents. The left turn=your fault sounds on its face like 100% baloney. I was a cop for 6 years, not in Nebraska, but thats the stupidest thing I ever heard. You can't patently say a left turn or a right turn or . . . Every case is a compilation of all of the factors.
Example - most of the time, if you get rear ended, its the guy behind you responsible. But not every time. I can even rattle off the old "you need to drive in accordance with the road and weather conditions and appropriate consideration for the load you are hauling" when its someone in a trailer. But reality. Reality is, people get behind a truck with a trailer and they're impatient. Their trip is more important, they're irritated because they can't see, and they pass him. Then they zip right back into the lane right in front of him and OH MY GOSH theres a red light better slam on the brakes. Well physics lesson folks. They need to drive with appropriate consideration for the other traffic. 10 tons doesnt stop in the same distance as 2, and you can read all about it in the state drivers handbook. So in that scenario, it's not the pickup with the trailers fault, he never had the time to respond to the other idiot.
Now I know squat about your particular scenario, and I suspect theres more to it. Up to you if you want to share, but I'll stand by the original statement that if the only thing he ticketed you on was a left turn, he's out of bounds.
And how do I get my name to show Lincoln, NE, anyway?

BTW, next time you see a cop making a left turn, broad side him and see if the story changes. :-)

I was going to turn left but the arrow changed. So I waited for the light to turn yellow, a truck in front of her ran the light, so I waited a second, the light was just turning red. I couldn't stop in the middle of the intersection, so I started to make the turn and this lady runs a red light and hits me while I am making the turn. She lied to the cop and said her light was yellow. But all 3 other lanes going her way had stopped when it turned yellow. I was always told by the athorities that a yellow light was the same as a red light. You have to stop if you can do so safely. H-E-L-P.....

Good point..... I am pretty sure it would be seen differently by the cop.

Larry... Once again, sorry to hear about the accident, sounds like you really got a raw deal.

Not to be the bad guy here, but FTE has some pretty strict rules regarding discussions of legal matters:

Click on "User CP", on the left near the top of the screen, then select "edit profile" from the list. There are a couple spots under the profile where you can specify your location.
