This was a complete mistake as my wife and I were lost. It was July and in California Schools have not been in session in over a 1 yr and half. Apparently summer school was in session in Dover. I have also not had a traffic violation in over 20 years. Do you think they will allow me to take a... Read more »
Not sure of your question. But if he received Citations for both Speeding and Lack of Financial Responsibility, then he needs to go to Court with proof of current Insurance. A local attorney might help alot in his case, especially since the vehicle has coverage. Apparently your Grandson did not...Read more »
I was issued a citation under the Move over Law. Situation was: I stopped before turning right from a side street into the right hand lane of a state highway (2 lanes in my direction of travel, speed limit 65). About 300 yards from the corner I'd just turned was an emergency vehicle, pulled... Read more »
The officer who pulled me over didn't state on the ticket that it was reckless, but I'm afraid I'll be charged as such. This is my first ticket ever but I'm afraid I'll be subject to jail time. Is hiring an attorney my best bet?
Apparently you handled yourself well when the stop occurred. The Citation can be amended, but I doubt it will be anything worse than the 29 MPH over. That Violation will add 5 points to your MVR, so you must be careful for the next year. An attorney might help, especially as nervous as you...Read more »
The vehicle information on the citation is wrong, he also did not check the proper boxes for commercial vehicle and the license plate number doesn't match the vehicle. I also explained to the officer I was only restarting my phone by pressing the power button since it froze and I use it for... Read more »
I recently received a speeding ticket for going 70 in a 55. I did not know the speed limit, as I had just turned down the street, so I was following traffic. The officer that pulled me over said that it was not his jurisdiction. When he pulled me over, he said that he was pulling me over for... Read more »
Go to Court in a respectful manner. Dress decent and talk to the DA or Judge politely. Quickly explain what happened. Have cash on you. Possibly you will be diverted or dismissed, or you might plea to a MVR nonreportable 9 mph over.
Hire a competent attorney to represent you. Just pleading guilty is usually not a good choice because of MVR points, and you might have had a better result. You will not be able to do this on your own.
The citation is for 65mph in a 45ph zone. I was traveling with traffic and was doing approximately 58mph in a 45mph zone so I'm not denying I was speeding. My issue is that I'm a CDL-A holder and anything over 15mph could potentially put me out of business. Do you agree with the Blount... Read more »
If the Clerk sends the conviction to the State DOS, then it will affect your License. Hire a competent attorney to represent you on this Citation. At worst it will be a Conviction, or it might not go on your MVR. Never just plead guilty and send the Court a Check.
The only advice is to hire a competent attorney in or near the County you were stopped in. Reckless Speeding is not a crime, so you obviously were charged with something else. The two citations could take your TNDL as you are only allowed 11 points on your MVR for the last year. You may have to...Read more »
Thank you for your question. Pleading "no contest" or "nolo contendre" has a very similar effect to a guilty plea in that you are not disputing any facts and are accepting punishment for a crime. By entering a plea of no contest, you are saying that you do not contest the facts...Read more »
