I got a ticket last week for failing to pull over to the left as I passed a police car on the shoulder of the right hand side of the road. I was on a two lane road but there were some cars in the other lane so instead of pulling into that lane I just slowed down as I passed. The cop finished with his other ticket he was handing out as I passed and he waved me over. I don't get this law or the ticket. The guy said I should have pulled to the left and slowed down but he wouldn't listen to my explanation that it wasn't safe to do it. What was I supposed to do? Can I appeal and win? Thanks.
