    Illegal left turn

    I need some advise..I got a ticket for illegal left turn in Fulton County '$195 & of course i dont have the $ for it' I didn't see the sign {at the time of the ticket} "NO LEFT TURN" (and it was dark & late) Because basically the sign was facing I think the wrong way "as in instead of facing you while driving; its parallel to the road look you would see it if you looking threw your passenger window" [I notice in a google maps picture & Im going down there today to get a picture of it] can I plea no lo or ask the judge to please throw it out due to the sign issue & that Im not reg driver threw that area of town or something like that... please help.. thank you

    If you are correct in that the sign was facing the wrong way, you can try to have a judge throw out the ticket. However the fact that you are not a regular driver in that area is no excuse. Ultimately it is in the judge's discretion and something like this would generally be hard for you to win.

    In the end you turn left illegally and this is not good for you that is why you take a ticket of 50 $ fine,
