Private Driveway?

Recommended Posts

I got into an accident turning on to a state road at the same time a gut was turning off the road, i was leaving a 7-11 driveway and he was turning into a store driveway right next to that driveway . We both turned at the same time to beat the on coming traffic but didnt see each other. FHP ( Florida highway patrol) gave me the ticket and said i was in violation of right away cause i turned out of a private driveway....Can someone tell em how a 7-11 with sheriff substation in it can be considered a private driveway? I'm thinking of fighting this in court rather then pay $170 dollars and take a 4hr class.

The key is you were coming OUT of a parking lot and the other car was turning IN. The other car because it was on the road and had the right of way. You had the duty to yield and it's your failure that caused the collision.
