Q: I got pulled over for going 75 in a 60 in Indiana, however i live in KY. This is my very first ticket, help!

Idk if i need to pay the ticket or go to court to try to get traffic school or something like that. This is new for me

Timothy Denison answered on Jan 24, 2020

Go to court and see if they will divert it (meaning if you don’t get another ticket in 90 or 180 days) they will dismiss it. Don’t just pay it bc you can do much better.

Q: My dog and another dog into a fight on the street and the owner got bit trying to get them apart. Can my dog get taken?

I lost grip of my dogs collar and my neighbor was walking her dog in the street with no leash. She was bitten by one of them trying to get them apart. Not she’s trying to get my dog taken by animal control.

Sounds like you're both equally at fault. Very doubtful that your dog gets taken, especially if you witnessed it and it was her dog that actually bit her.

If it is a warrant, it is good until the case is resolved. Get proof of registration from your county clerk For the vehicle in question as well as proof of your current registration and take it to court with you. They will likely dismiss the case upon presentation of this proof.
