I was given a summons for reckless driving generally and improper u-turn in Norfolk,VA. The light was red for at least 7 minutes, because it hadn''t changed by the time I pulled out of Taco Bell. I decided to turn my signal on and turn right, since there was no line distinguishing the two lanes. As I did so, a car with two girls sped up to the light. I turned after they turned and then got into the left lane to make a u-turn. I signaled to turn into the left lane. There was no sign saying no u-turns were allowed, but yet the officer said I made an improper u-turn. I saw that the punishment for this charge can be up to $2,500 with jailtime and/or a suspended license. What should I do do? Would enrolling in a drivers improvement class before the court date lower the charge?
