Q: I got cited for pedestrians crossing at other than crosswalk yesterday, its my first offense,and I'm not sure what to do
I was running across the street to my motel, this car waved me to go across because it was clear, another car that happen to be texting and driving slammed on their brake to late and clashed with the car that waved me to go across, and due to property damage I have to go to court. Its my first offense im not sure what will happen.
A: This sounds like something you should fight and if you do so, then you should hire a traffic ticket attorney to represent him and wade through this. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and search for criminal defense or traffic ticket attorneys in your area-----some will provide a free initial consultation----I know that my firm does----after you speak to a few, hire the one with whom you are most comfortable.
