Received a citation for drive one lane/unsafe lane change. Here is what happened.
Driving through Phoenix I10. There was an accident in front of me, two vehicles. One vehicle moves to the side of the road and the other vehicle is stopped in front of me with hazards on. I attempt to move around the vehicle in front of me and clip another vehicles rear bumper with my front bumper.
Trooper shows up. Asks what happened and I explain the situation. I receive a citation for drive one lane/unsafe lane change. Police and collision report are taken. Citation shows wrong vehicle color and moving speed of 5mph in a 65. It was stop and go traffic. Driver leaves with no injury, no tow.
I contact a lawyer. Lawyer tells me that that I have two options. To go for a dismissal, best case being officer doesn't show up. Or, go for an amended which may be reduced.
I am licensed out of Texas, a veteran, and have no prior collisions or tickets. Should I go for dismissal or amendment?
