Fuck this shit, I'm going home

So last night on the drive home from work I got a ticket for specifically NOT doing what the jerks in front of me did.

Traffic backup, and eventually I have to turn right. Jerkwads are passing me on the shoulder, but I know that's not the right thing to do, so I want until we crest a little hill and I see the turn lane. I wait for two more jerks to pass on the shoulder, then I pull into the turn lane... only to have a cop step out from a side street and make all three of us pull over. I'm thinking maybe there's an accident and we're not allowed to turn right way up at the light (the turn for which everyone was driving on the shoulder to bypass the backup in the first place), but no - I pull up to another cop who tells me I'm getting a ticket for driving on the shoulder. I was SO pissed, and told him I specifically DIDN'T do that and WAITED until I was at the turn lane, but he said, "Well, that other officer told you to pull over, so you're getting at ticket."

$110? Damn right I'm taking this to court! I usually support cops but this particular one really was blind and ignorant. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
