<edit> Thread split I have now been informed I have been issues an infringement notice, code: 2039, Changing lanes or line of traffic without giving way from one marked lane to another. $211 and 2 Demerits. (First road offence ever, car or bike.) I literally have no idea, I asked the officers at the scene if I had done anything wrong or illegal after explaining what happened, they said no. The infringement is issues 8/8/12 when the accident happened on the 2/8/12. Things were very rushed, and they didn't even give me their names or a way to contact the police and just left. I really don't know what to do. A brief run-down of what happened, I'm on white horse road (https://maps.google.com.au/maps/ms?...&t=h&z=21&vpsrc=1&iwloc=0004c71fd57fcd22b0979) I'm in the left far left lane parked, I get ready to go. I want to end up in the watts road turning lane, I'm about to set off and see traffic coming so of course I wait, then I see at the pedestrian crossing someone is going to cross. The lights went red, I waited for traffic to be stationary then proceeded to move behind one car and in front of another that was in the far right lane, signalling as I went. I was just leaving the right hand lane, this is all at walking speed or slower, my front wheel is well in the Watts Rd turning lane, when a car hits my back wheel and swing arm, knocking the bike from under me. It was 100% safe to do so, I wouldn't play with my life like that. I don't know how to proceed, should I try and contact the officer who issued the infringement, I am quite beside myself. Bike repair is $5600 my excess is 800ish I think, plus the fine. I really am freaking out, I was freaking out before with just Uni!
