True story: a friend of mine was traveling down a 2-lane road in Iberia Parish. The 2-lane road had the normal yellow-dashed line; it did not have the "no passing" single yellow line on either side. He puts on his left turn signal and proceeds to turn left in his own driveway; there was no oncoming traffic. A speeding vehicle behind him could not stop in time and, obviously, completely ripps the entire side of my friend's (driver's side) car. Seems as though the speeding vehicle tried to go around my friend's car by passing him.
So who gets the ticket and fine? My friend does. The police officer said he should have gotten on the shoulder of the road and allowed the gentleman (vehicle) to pass before he turned. Hummmm, what if there is no shoulder? Just sounds stupid to me.
