Houston, TX asked in Traffic Tickets for Texas

Q: I got a ticket for no insurance and registration being out and my license got suspended and it was a company vehicle.

I gave the company the paper work for the registration and they never turned it in until I received the ticket and now my license is suspended for the no insurance even when the company said there was insurance on the truck.

A: Since you were personally cited, you have to personally appear in Court in accord with your signed promise to appear. That is when you sign the ticket instead of being handcuffed and immediately taken to jail. In many cases the court will dismiss the charges against the driver who is not the registered owner and bring the registered owner into court to respond. This case arises in the area of traffic ticket law. You need to discuss with an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
