Mass Pike motor vehicle citation dismissed

Summary:  Client traveling eastbound on the Mass Pike in the middle travel lane in the town of Natick.  In order to overtake the vehicle in front, she checked her mirrors and indicated a lane change. The only vehicle was quite some distance down the highway and she moved to the left passing lane.   Upon looking in her mirror she saw headlights extremely close to her bumper and blue lights.  After pulling over safely, a state trooper curtly advised that she ‘cut him off’ and handed her a ticket for unsafe lane change.  There was no chance for discussion and he left the scene.  She appealed knowing that the vehicle was not there prior to her lane change.  At the hearing, it was clear that the trooper was traveling at a speed greater than the speed limit and that this was most likely the reason he came upon her so quickly.

Result:  Not Responsible.  Ticket dismissed.

Counsel: Kevin R. Leeper, Esq.
