Turn Signal Suppression issue Login/Join

I have a suppression issue with a defendant coming to a stop at a red traffic light, then turns on her left turn signal. After a few seconds she then switches to the right turn signal, then proceeds to turn right. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can say she violated 545.104 for not "signaling continuously for not less than the last 100 feet of movement before the turn" or if the fact that she came to a complete stop at the red light negates the 100 ft rule. Thanks!

I'll have to dig up the last time I had this issue appealed against me to give you any citations, but you're 100% good on 545.104.

Awesome thanks, I'm seeing now Elias v. State and Tucker v. State seem pretty on point. I appreciate the quick response!
