    Driving lesson 101. Flick on your signal when you're making a turn. Even when you're a mayor.

    San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed was stopped by police at 7:35 a.m. Tuesday while heading to work at City Hall in his Prius - about a 2-mile drive.

    He was in the right turn lane at North White and Mabury roads, and failed to signal 100 feet before the intersection, according to the ticket obtained by NBC Bay Area.

    The mayor's spokesman David Lowe confirmed the citation, but didn't say whether the mayor was going to pay the $35 fine or go to traffic school.

    It's well known that the mayor and the police union are at odds over pension reform and pay cuts.
