NY DWI Dismissed: Unlawful Police STOP for Failure to Signal Violation o...





Brandt was stopped for violating V.T.L. § 1163(b), which he argues only applies to a moving vehicle that must signal a turn one hundred (100) feet prior to turning. Where the defendant's vehicle was stationary at a red light and he signaled his intention to turn while stopped, the one hundred (100) feet does not apply. The court agreed with this and his DWI charges were dismissed.
