I got two tickets the other day. One for "Failure to Obey Signals Signs or Directions" and the other for "Traffic on Marked Lanes - Center Lane Violation." It was about 5 a.m., and the right side of a road was blocked by police just after an intersection. There was an arrow sign pointing left, but I took that to mean that I could go around the road block and re-enter the right side of the road beyond the road block. It would have helped if the sign said "Detour" or if there was an officer directing traffic instead of sitting in his car. I've set a court date to contest these tickets, so my question is do I really need OTR to get me a lawyer or can I just go and plead my case on my own?
