I got traffic ticket in PA and the office signed the citation on my behave and also there was a column in the ticket where the officer supposed indicate the race of the defendant. In my case he indicated that I was from different race other mine. Is this something that will make citation dismissed.

If you were pulled over and feel you were wrongly accused of a traffic violation, especially as a CDL holder, it's important to handle the situation carefully, as traffic violations can have a significant impact on your professional driving record.

Once I got to the top of the exit I went back down onto the highway and she pulled over and then got behind me and followed me an additional 2.5 miles. She called the police and said I cut HER off.... View More
One rep told me that they don’t do that anymore and it won’t affect my suspension. Another customer service rep told me that yes I need to turn it in with a form, but it won’t impact my suspension. I saw that the law changed in 2018 but I’m confused. I’m in college and my dad just gave... View More
I witnessed an intoxicated person driving last night who ended up causing property damage. Officer found this person at their residence and only issued a citation. Why didn’t the officer arrest this person? I was an eye witness to the whole incident and there was property damage. Those two things... View More
It's possible that the officer did not have sufficient evidence to establish intoxication at the time of the encounter, or they may have chosen to issue a citation instead of making an arrest based on their discretion and department policies.

So my sister and mom were in the hospital and I was in a distressed state and I own a manual 2003 mustang. I drove it for a little bit and couldn't focus and pulled over and had my friend drive and that's when my friend got pulled over by the cops.
I understand that you were in a distressed state due to your sister and mom being in the hospital, and I sympathize with the challenging situation you were facing. However, driving with a suspended license is a serious offense and can result in penalties such as fines, license suspension extension,...View More
Also am i likely to recieve a probation violation for this? The officer i was pulled over by said i should have nothing but a small fine to pay, this is my first traffic violation and would be my first probation violation, is it likely my probation officer would let me off with a warning?
Many other factors will determine outcome. You are on probation for what? You have a license but did not have it with you? Your license is suspended? All have differing results. Best to discuss with your PO before he gets a report from DMV. I recommend you contact several attorneys in your area...View More

Hi, I got a traffic citation under title 75 section 6110 subsection A on PA turnpike. I want to know if this a moving violation or carry any points? Will this affect my future insurance coverage? If yes, is it worth contesting it in the court?
When you are issued a traffic citation the PD can arrest you and take you before a magistrate for arraignment; or you can sign a "promise to appear" and pledge to willingly go to court. Failing to appear on that promise is often a more serious offense than the traffic ticket, and will...View More
I received 2 traffic citation points, today. The charges are Restraint System (I had my cousin in my car without a booster seat just for a quick ride) and Driving on Roadways lanes for traffic. I understand that both charges are 100% my fault. But I’d like to know if there’s any better way to... View More
Some states have a diversion system for the restraint violation. You take a class and it is dismissed. It doesn't matter how short the trip is, if you are on the road you have to follow all the restraint and booster seat laws. On the second one, I have no comment. This case arises under...View More
