I was leaving my house like I always have done for the past 12 years. On this particular day, i came to the end of my street and stopped like I have always done. I looked right saw no traffic coming and looked left and saw a car coming over the hill, I then proceeded to make a right hand turn, and as I did I hit a cyclist. I was going less than 5 mph when I hit her. I knocked her off her bike and she complained that her leg was hurt. 911 was called and she was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons, but was treated and walked out of the hospital under her own power. I did stop at the sign, and for some reason just did not see her come in front of me. I have made this turn several thousand times and have never had an incident. I know I was in the wrong, but it was just a accident. They wasn't even a scratch on my car. My question is, the police officer, after two weeks, issued me a citation for failure to obey a traffic control device. However, I did stop at the stop sign, and only proceeded when it appeared to be clear. I did not run the stop sign. He is contending when he issued me the citation, that the cyclist was considered a traffic control device. He gave me a ticket, code 811.265 for $260. Is this legitimate, or should I fight it?
