Q: Hi I got a ticket I was in a car accident it says it was code C. O. M. V. Can you please tell me what does mean?
And if you get a ticket for C. O. M. V. how much would the ticket be
A: It's Careless Operation of a Motor Vehicle. You will need to call the clerk with the telephone number listed on the ticket to determine the amount of the fine associated with the citation.
A: I agree it's most likely Careless Operation of a Motor Vehicle. I strongly suggest you attempt to reach a disposition where it does not appear on your driving record. Careless Operation is treated the same with most insurance companies as a DWI, and it can cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket. If your record is otherwise clean, an attorney can often help you achieve this result. Give me a call if I can help.
