A: The answer depends on many factors, such as do you have a CDL where this ticket could cost you, your job especially if you get another ticket in the future, your past driving record, your ability to afford a good lawyer as a cheap lawyer may charge your a lower fee but will they get the result you need because just like everything in life you get what you pay for. I suggest that you setup one of the free in office consultation that most of us traffic ticket lawyer offer to learn how a good lawyer can help you.

A: You have a CDL that would be affected. Don't know about a citation for something like this on a private area--consult an attorney who handles tickets in the county /town where it happened.
