Yesterday, received citation for 'driving across median'. First of all, didn't know this was a law. Please read scenario:
Turning left onto Lake Houston Pkwy from East Belt Southbound (B8). Both are divided roads. There was a tractor-trailer that stalled in front of me--also turning left--halfway through the turn. Rather than sit in the intersection and be rear-ended, I drove onto and off of the center divider (grass) with my two left tires, and proceeded on down the road. I was on the divider for approximately 10 feet of travel. Apparently, I am a burden to society.
Would like some advice on how to handle this. I refuse to accept guilt, even though I did technically drive on the median. Would like to get out of this screwy situation without paying, but would rather pay a lawyer than the county. Officer was a Harris County Constable.
