My brother got a ticket for hitting a guy while he was passing him. The guy turned in front of him while he was in the other lane. I am looking for the section of law where it would say if he was right or wrong.

(2) when approaching within one hundred feet of or traversing any intersection or railroad grade crossing;

(3) when the view is obstructed upon approaching within one hundred feet of any bridge, viaduct, or tunnel.
