A: There are several Rule of the Road Violations that you might be charged with, but it is very doubtful... If something happens, then hire a competent attorney to represent you. Do not ignore a Citation, Summons, Civil Warrant or Notice from the Department of Safety.

A: It seems unlikely. What you describe sounds like it was inconsequential.
