Illegal U turn vs. three point turn?
I got pulled over for making an illegal U turn on a business district and same goes for the car infront of me. However, I did a three point turn, and she (car in front of me driving an SUV) did a U turn. Can I get out of my ticket if I show up in court?

If there is a sign posted NO U TURN, then you're at fault. If NO sign was posted, then you may have a chance. It also depends on the city ordinances too.

Get an opinion from a lawyer. Advice is usually free.
Good Luck.

I don't think you can get out of it. A 3 point turn seems even worse than a U turn to me. If it's illegal to do a U-turn where you were, why would it be legal to do a 3 point turn?

Maybe, if the cop doesn't show up. It's a revenue enhancer ticket, if they really want the money, a cop will show up and you"ll be guilty before you walk up to the bench.

Great double standard, as any cop can pull a Uturn anywhere, anytime, just because.

I don't think there's any difference in what type of turn you made. It was possibly illegal to "change direction". How you got from one direction to the other doesn't matter.

You can try. If the cop don't show then the ticket gets thrown out. However the point is the technique used in turning around it it the maneuver itself that is illegal.
