It depends on the circumstances. If the police do not have any proof at all the person was at any time operating or driving the vehicle then they should not be charged. If the person was driving at a previous date and the police can prove they were driving they could be charged. This commonly...Read more »

I just got my first ticket. The officer said I was going 70 in a 55, but wrote it up as going 60 in a 55. It has a prepayable amount on it, though. If I make the payment before my court date, do I still have to go to court?
You can go to court or you can hire an attorney to go to court on your behalf. They will likely work out a resolution that day and then if you owe fines and costs they will be due on a later date usually 60 to 90 days after you plead guilty
You are always better off if you hire an attorney. It really depends on how fast you were going. 26 mph over is the highest charge in Kentucky but you can actually be going for 30, 40 or mph over it would show up as the same charge
I’ve gotten a ticket once in October 2019 and did traffic school so it never counted against my license. Will I be able to make payments on my ticket or will I have to be able to pay in full? How big of a fine will I expect to pay? Can they offer traffic school again?

It depends what county you’re in but hiring attorney for any speeding ticket over 20 mph over is typically worth it because you can get a reduced charged or possibly a County Attorney or state traffic school diversion program. Having a local attorney is much easier than trying to do it yourself...Read more »
I’m not sure what your question is but you need to hire an attorney and get these bench warrants taken care of. You don’t want to get arrested or lose your license over things that can’t be taken care of in court.
In Kentucky you will likely expect an offer that includes pleading guilty to a charge of speeding 26 mph greater. Your license in Kentucky would be subject to a probation or suspension hearing. Since you’re out of state you could also face restrictions through your state department of...Read more »
I got clocked going 71 in a 55 but he only cited me 5 over the limit. The 5 miles over limit is just $5 but court cost is $140. He said if I prepay the ticket, I don't have to go to court. So Do I have to pay the court cost as well when I prepay, even if I do not have to go to court?
