Whats our road laws coming to??

I was at Glenelg the other night (for people that know adelaide) pulling out of the magic mountain car park. there is a copper sitting over the other side of the road. I wanted to turn right, so i put my indicator on, and he flagged me down. He came up to me, told me to get out with my license. next thing he says "whats your reason for disobeying the no right turn sign there". I never knew there was one there, but there was no point arguing with him. the thing is, when you pull out of a car park, your too busy watching out for pedestrians and other oncoming traffic to notice the signs.

basically, my point is that im on my P's, i got slogged a $200 fine for 'disobeying a no right turn sign', and lost 2 demerit points for it. (which will leave me without a license soon because i was only on one point)
Now dont the cops have anything better to do than to bust people like that??
just really annoys me to think they can get people for that when theres people out there putting peoples lives at risk by speeding, drinki driving etc.

Geez, the road rules are being enforced, what a travesty.

Ever think there may be a good reason for not being able to turn right?

Anyway as it is just a pointless whinge....
