You will need to keep checking Missouri casenet online to see if the ticket has been filed. Once the ticket is filed, you will have to appear in court on the court date (either in person or virtually, depending on whether the court is having in-person court or virtual online court), or you can hire...Read more »
It was a tow company that impounded my vehicle due to a traffic stop and me not having proper updated tags; which I also hear that insurance is voluntary unless you’re operating a commercial vehicle. The tow company is currently suspended via the tax commission on the Secretary of State website.
Also a have my provisional license the police office only gave me the ticket and he didn’t talk me if I have go to court , I want to know the charges and if they are going to put point on my license o what I can do , not get the point.
It’s a 5 point offense. That’s 3 points away from a 6 month suspension, and an automatic point suspension conference before the MVA. Any result other than not guilty will extend your provisional license another 18 months. You must request a trial (NOT a waiver hearing). If the officer does not...Read more »
Is your question what you should do? I would contact a traffic ticket lawyer in your area and ask him what he recommends. Depending on the circumstances of why your vehicle was pulled over, there could be some leniency on the prosecuting attorney's part.
He asked me if I was aware how far off the road I was. To my knowledge I wasn't off the road at all. I sneezed a big one though and might have left the road for a second. He took my license and registration, looked briefly at my registration and then went back to his car. Came back and ask me... Read more »
I was looking for my credentials in my bag but I guess I was taking to long. The officer said he would look it up by my tag. When he came back to the car I found my license and insurance card but he already wrote a ticket because I didn't find it within 10 minutes. I've never heard of... Read more »
One way to find out: ask for a formal hearing, and a judge or magistrate may agree with you. You won't find a specific time limit in the law. The cop can't be expected to wait all day for you; but to expect you to virtually be driving with your license in hand may also be unreasonable.
If the ticket indicates that you are required to go to court, then you are required to go to court whether or not you paid the ticket in advance. Most likely, a ticket w/MVA is a court required ticket-----what you need to do is report the MVA to your insurance company and request from your...Read more »
If you were going 75 in a 70 then you are still speeding and depending whether or not there is a bump in a fine for excessive speeding, more likely than not, you have the same consequences. My suggestion is that you contact a few traffic ticket attorneys in the jurisdiction/area the ticket was...Read more »
Received letter from WYDOTT dated June 10, 2021. It says my license will be suspended unless evidence of satisfactory compliance with terms of citation is received prior to the date of July 11, 2021. Does that mean I have to show up to court? Also ticket was issued to Fort Collins, CO and DOT... Read more »
Without eyeballing the letter and the ticket, the most likely answer is that as long as you do not have a "court-required" ticket----which means you have to go to court----then you payment of the ticket should be all you need to do----the jurisdiction which receives payment will note that...Read more »
Cops are allowed to lie, but this one is a close one in regards to that which a judge would have to decide based on the testimony of the witnesses. That being said you always have a right to see a copy of the warrant.
You should have told the judge you received probation before judgment for another speeding ticket and when that occurred. The judge can pull your driving record. If you were in trouble, the judge would have told you right then and there. The judge usually pulls your driving record during your case.
I got pulled over for speeding but I had a warrent I went to jail in a different county then my speeding ticket. They never took me to court for it and that was two years ago I got released on probation in December they said I needed to be call and be put on the docket. What do I need to expect... Read more »
The officer who pulled me over didn't state on the ticket that it was reckless, but I'm afraid I'll be charged as such. This is my first ticket ever but I'm afraid I'll be subject to jail time. Is hiring an attorney my best bet?
Apparently you handled yourself well when the stop occurred. The Citation can be amended, but I doubt it will be anything worse than the 29 MPH over. That Violation will add 5 points to your MVR, so you must be careful for the next year. An attorney might help, especially as nervous as you...Read more »

The vehicle information on the citation is wrong, he also did not check the proper boxes for commercial vehicle and the license plate number doesn't match the vehicle. I also explained to the officer I was only restarting my phone by pressing the power button since it froze and I use it for... Read more »
