I have a clean record and I was tailgated, boxed in and brake checked by a semi without a load.
With my kids in the car fussing I was extremely uncomfortable and anxious. When this truck finally merged to move on I saw a trooper on the shoulder, no car in front of him and lights on.... Read more »
Probably not as General Sessions is not a Court of Record and amendments to the charging instrument can be made easily. Go to Court with your TNDL, Registration and Insurance. Hope for some type of diversion.
I received a speeding ticket on the Natchez Trace in TN...a federal violation. 36 CFR 4.21 (c) for 72 in a 50. I have been asked to pay a fine of $150 and don’t have to appear in court. (Box B). I have a clean driving record. My question is: if I pay the fine, am I admitting guilt and will this... Read more »
I want to know if a person can be cited for causing damage to my vehicle that is parked in a parking spot and I’m not in it. If they hit it and leave without a note or contact information, can they be charged with a hit and run? What if officers don’t want to spend the time investigating and... Read more »
Have you identified the License Plate, or the Driver, that hit you? Some places have video surveillance. Any witnesses? Once you identify either the Driver or the Owner, then report it to LEO's and make claims against their Liability Coverages. You might try the Financial...Read more »
They gave me a court date and no other information was on the ticket. It had no price I would had to pay just a court date for a few months out. It has me worried that I might get my license suspended.
No but either at the bottom of the ticket or on the back of the ticket there should be some instructions on who to contact/call for the price of the ticket. That said, if you are cited for a moving violation (speeding, improper lane usage, etc.) I recommend that you contact a traffic ticket...Read more »
I was taking my kids to school one morning and there was a State trooper standing outside of his car where the kids are dropped off when I pulled in to let my kids off he asked me to step out of the car he said that I was speeding I asked him can I see the radar gun because I'm sure I...

I received my first ever ticket for holding my cell while driving. I wasn’t talking or texting. I picked the phone up to show my daughter something and was pulled over. This happened the end of May and my court date is this week. So, my question is do I just show up on my court date or do I have... Read more »

You may have three 11 mo/29 sentences or three 30 day sentences. Without looking at the dispositions on each Warrant, it is impossible to tell. You need an attorney to go to Court with you now. It appears you have already been convicted, that is apparently Diversion was not ordered.
Following up on attorney Avery's post, it is still recommended that you contact a a traffic ticket attorney or 2 in your area to discuss your options and how to best mitigate your ticket----usually the cost to pay an attorney on a speeding ticket is less expensive than the months of increased...Read more »
There’s no fine amount written on the ticket. It’s completely blank and I have the option to pay by mail as well. Is this normal, or did the officer make a mistake? Would a judge see 88mph in a 55mph as reckless driving, class b misdemeanor, or just as speeding, class C misdemeanor? Thank you
If you pay it, then that is a conviction and points will be added to your MVR. You might want to hire an attorney or at least go to Court. The blank Citation is something to talk to the DA or Judge about, but it is Sessions and can be amended on the Bench. Apparently the LEO did not thing...Read more »
I was late for work and going 45 in a 30. I am guilty. I have been told it is better to go to court but after court fees, the fine, and the charge to go to traffic school, I am worried it would be much cheaper to just pay the ticket online. I am a college student working through school and barely... Read more »
For what are you seeking an attorney? Based on your post, I would seek an attorney to represent you and help you obtain the best result possible for the citation issued to you. If the accident occurred while you were working then you might have a workers' comp claim and an attorney...Read more »
I took my dog to the park while I ate a taco, hopped back in and was in R about to pull out. Stopped to set my podcast and a cop pulled in, I looked behind me and backed out. The cop followed me, so I pulled over to see what he wanted. He kept going, he went R me L. 20 sec later he pulled me,... Read more »
Speeding on a major highway along with multiple cars, state trooper sees us. I slow down and the state trooper gets to the lane next to me and just matches my speed and doesn’t end up pulling anyone over. Could they still mail me a citation even though they didn’t pull me over?

Recently called their courthouse, they said i would have to appear in front of judge before i was able to get my liscence reinstated. what am i facing when i go there? Also the offense was for riding a wheelie on... Read more »
Hire a competent attorney to turn you in to the Court when you are not on the Docket. The Judge may arrest you, set Bond, or you might dispose of it all at once. You will need cash that day. Once it is paid in full, take that Receipt back to IN DMV, etc.
