I was waved down by a cop while driving on a road apparently restricted to 53ft trailers. Which I normally drive 48 on that road and have never had an issue. During the stop the officer asked for my information. Everything seemed fine and let me off with a warning. A couple days later I was mailed... Read more »
A car hit my car at the front passenger side as I was making a left turn at Route 663 at 3:40am. The road was blind on my right and a car was speeding down. Instead of him having a collision towards me, he swerved to the right and fell on a ditch and hit a tree. His car was wrecked but he was fine... Read more »
You should absolutely plead not guilty. At the very least, it may be possible to have the citation amended to a section that will not add points to your license. Consult a traffic attorney in your area for more information.
Cop pulled me over speeding 60 in a 35 mph zone. I wasn’t doing more than 50 but not really going to argue with him. I was still speeding and agree with that. He said I can fight it in court and the ticket will be mailed to me. It’s the first time I ever heard they can mail the ticket. I though... Read more »
Yes it is permissible for the citation to be mailed to you under the circumstances. You should contact an attorney to discuss your options. Many times, we can get the speed reduced on the citation to reduce or eliminate the number of points that are assessed to your license.
Depending on what specific section was cited you might receive points on your license. It would be best to consult with a traffic attorney to get the full details. Most of us provide free consultations. I see your question comes from outside Pennsylvania as well - the answer also depends on what...Read more »
Yes, an attorney can plead not guilty on your behalf. There are some courts that will still require that you post collateral for the citation. If you are interested in hiring an attorney, reach out to one for a free consult to discuss the citation in detail and what your options might be.
Here's your problem. At that speed a judge is going to be upset. Really upset. It is ultimately up to the judge even if the cop wants to help you out. If things go wrong you will likely lose your license, get a ton of points and your insurance can go up or they can drop your insurance totally....Read more »
The answer depends on a few different factors like whether this is the first time or if you've been convicted for driving under suspension before, as well as whether your license was suspended for a DUI. Contact an attorney for a free consultation and we can tell you what the potential...Read more »
Once you are convicted the court sends notice to Penndot and then it appears on your record. It does however depend upon the citation because some moving violations will appear on your record while other non-moving violations will not. If you recently received a ticket you would be well served to...Read more »
He is 17, came up behind a driver on a rural road that was stopped. According to him she waved him around her, so he went around her. He wasn’t pulled over, no cop on scene. Next day the town cop came to house to get his info. 2 days later he received the citations in the mail. How can a cop... Read more »
Plead not guilty and get a lawyer. It is the most serious ticket in PA and carries with it 5 points plus an automatic 6 month license suspension. The police do not have to pull someone over to issue a citation if they believe they have the evidence to prove it.
I have a learner's permit, I have an appointment to take my driver's test soon. I was alone in the vehicle when I got pulled over for doing 65 on a 30mph limit. I feel like I messed up by telling the officer I knew I was Speeding. what do I do I'm so confused and scared. I need answers
You need to contact a traffic ticket attorney in your area to represent you and mitigate this issue. Additionally, you should proceed with steps to obtaining your full driver's license and if possible, get it before your court date. Good luck.
First of all, I'm glad your son seems to be ok from the accident. At court you and your son may have the opportunity to talk with the officer about getting rid of or reducing the number of points that could be assessed to his license. You can always ask the court for a continuance if...Read more »
Hello, My 16 yr old daughter's car is in my name. Today I received a citation in the mail in my name for a $350.00 fine for "obedience to traffic control devices". The fine is doubled because the incident took place in a work zone. The notes indicate "Driver nearly caused a... Read more »
Yes, you need to plead not guilty. Really, the citation should be dismissed altogether. The officer then has an opportunity to re-file after learning the correct identity of the driver. In my experience, most officers will not re-file against your daughter, but there's a chance he/she will...Read more »
I got pulled over for going 86 on a 40 work zone. State trooper gave me a pass for that due to my clean record. He said he'd cite me for not turning hazard lights on when pulled over. In the citation there's a confidential information section, that says i was pulled over for going 86 on a... Read more »
The only thing that will be made part of the public record is that you received a citation for violated section 4305 (the hazard lights). The trooper likely wrote 86 in a 40 in other section in the event you were to challenge the citation in court - it would remind him as to why he initially pulled...Read more »
No. If the sticker wasn't expired is a defense. The fact the cop missed a couple of numbers won't get you anywhere. Get the car inspected and maybe they'll drop it. In the meantime, don't drive it around without inspection.
