I was in a two lane road and the police was in the right shoulder of the road , they given me a ticket for appearance in court with in 10 days , a misdemeanor offense , the vehicles was in left lane , I didn’t get any ample time to move to left lane and was coming in less speed than speed limit.
The issue is not likely your speed alone, but whether you yielded to what was happening with the officers on the road. For example, what if the speed limit was 45mph, and you passed their scene at 40mph without moving to the farthest lane? Much different from driving by at just 5mph. And also distinguishable from driving by the scene at 35mph in the farthest lane with a steady flow of cars. If you did not have ample time to change lanes because of the flow of traffic, or inability to see the police scene, that will make a difference too. As a rule, "yielding" requires hitting the brakes at some point.
