I got the ticket in Missouri but while in his vehicle when he gave me the ticket on camera he never asked me to sign it on any of the signature spots is the ticket valid he didn't sign the printed out ticket anywhere either
Yes, the ticket is valid. It makes no difference if the police officer didn't sign the ticket or if you didn't sign the ticket. After the police officer issues a ticket to a driver, the prosecutor has to approve the ticket, and then it goes to the court clerk to be filed on Casenet....Read more »
I got pulled over for passing an emergency vehicle that was blocking the road for a wreck. I was given a citation for not yielding to the emergency vehicle. All of this was in Kentucky and now I go to court over it. What will happen at court
Obtain a court certified traffic citation disposition from the clerk of the county court where the matter was adjudicated (completed). Disclose that traffic citation and attach a copy of the certified court disposition with all conditions met (fine paid) on...Read more »
I was regrettably doing 88mph in a 35mph school zone. Honest to God I didn't know I was in a school zone I thought the speed limit was 50 either way I was late for work and speeding. So the officer told me I was doing 88mph then comes to give me the ticket and I realized he marked it down and... Read more »
There is also the possibility that the prosecutor will have the officer’s handwritten notes indicating that the officer already gave you a break when he issued the speeding ticket to you. If you are concerned, however, then meeting an attorney for a consultation might be something to consider...Read more »

I don't know if I have to show up in person to Colorado to get this taken care of or if I can just pay my fine over the phone? On the citation it says that a parent or guardian has to be with me in my "court date" The problem is my parents say they won't drive to Colorado with... Read more »
You need to ask an attorney in Colorado to know for sure, but I think you can just pay the fine without appearing. Most states allow traffic tickets to be resolved without personally appearing. You should call the court directly and ask them. They may even have an option for you to...Read more »

I want to know if a person can be cited for causing damage to my vehicle that is parked in a parking spot and I’m not in it. If they hit it and leave without a note or contact information, can they be charged with a hit and run? What if officers don’t want to spend the time investigating and... Read more »
Have you identified the License Plate, or the Driver, that hit you? Some places have video surveillance. Any witnesses? Once you identify either the Driver or the Owner, then report it to LEO's and make claims against their Liability Coverages. You might try the Financial...Read more »
To our knowledge, the property owners are not pressing charges. However, the District Attorney is charging him with a misdemeanor for this accident. He was not under the influence of anything. He was returning home from football practice. He's a good kid. No history of drugs or alcohol. Good... Read more »
If the District Attorney is prosecuting this, then you need to hire an attorney to represent your son's interests and help mitigate this matter----depending on the age of your son, it may be possible to get all of this transferred to juvenile court jurisdiction which might keep all of this off...Read more »

You can't still receive a ticket as you would be past the statute of limitations, but it sounds like you may already have had one. I would hire an attorney to research this and see if any tickets arose out of the situation to make sure you don't have a warrant for your arrest for not...Read more »
Long ago in Minnesota, police could ask a driver to sign an acknowledgment that they received a copy of a traffic citation. But even then if the driver did not or refused to sign to acknowledge receipt, it made no difference. Today, Minnesota's uniform citation for traffic violations does...Read more »
You are not required to sign the citation in Minnesota so that is neither here nor there. I would imagine that you are going to be mailed a copy of the citation so you should be looking for that in the mail.
They gave me a court date and no other information was on the ticket. It had no price I would had to pay just a court date for a few months out. It has me worried that I might get my license suspended.
I'm a bit unsure about the question, since some of the terminology used in it may be different than as used by attorneys. A traffic stop alone is not an "arrest." When a driver is issued a citation by a police officer, that is done instead of an arrest, normally. In any event, you...Read more »
This a class 1 misdemeanor according to court record but I thought it had to be over 20mph to be a misdemeanor reckless driving charge. Below 20 mph would be reckless driving but not a misdemeanor (i thought).
That's the same as the police officer motioning/telling you over his speaker to slow down. That doesn't mean that he can't give you a ticket later for speeding at that time. So yes you can still get a ticket for what happened.
As I walk into store a cop rolls in the parking lot I see him behind my truck he then leaves I come out and walk away from the store get a block away the cop rolls up on me and proceeds to give me a ticket for driving on suspended is this something I should fight and if so is there a chance of...
