    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I don't see anything in the rules that would indicate that you are required to use a turn signal in the situation you described. If you received a ticket, your ticket should cite the traffic law that you violated. Laws have elements that have to be proven in order for you to be found guilty. If the elements are not met, then you can be found not guilty. A traffic attorney can provide assistance in reviewing the rule, the facts of your case and advising you of any defenses you may have.

    Answered . I don't practice in MD, but in most jurisdictions you do. However, you may not need to if there aren't any cars behind you. I'd look up the statute or code section you got ticketed for.
