Hire an attorney to represent you. Conviction will mean 6 points against your MVR, and you are only allowed 11. It is very easy to get caught again within 1 year. Speeding will usually mean less points and there are numerous possible pleas. Once you lose the TNDL, it will be bad. Some type of...View More
I had an officer demand mine for the ticket and threaten to detain me and impound my car if I didn’t give it. I’ve been driving over 30 years and this was the first time I’d ever had an officer even request it, let alone threaten to cuff me and put me in his car. Then when he gave me the... View More
Whether to cite or arrest you is the LEO's discretion. So if you do not cooperate, he may arrest you. The SSN is available from the Department of Safety. Hire an attorney to represent you as you have already made the cop mad.
2 years ago I was followed for 15m by a cop for no reason. I was pulled over after hitting the line on the side of road. It was night and I couldn’t tell it was a cop. Him following me for that amount of time was making me nervous so every turn I took he took and as I looked in my rear view to... View More
Go to the Court Clerk and get a copy of the Citation. If dismissed, then it can be expunged. If a conviction, only a few crimes can be expunged. Most convictions are permanent on your record. Take the Citation to an attorney for his opinion.

It is not legal for law enforcement to coerce or threaten someone to provide information or act as an informant in exchange for leniency in their own criminal case. This is a violation of the individual's rights and can lead to further legal consequences for the officer.

I plead guilty because at the time they didn’t offer traffic school, and it’s been 3 years later and it still shows on my record. I’m an electrician and didn’t know when they would fall off my license that way I can drive a company vehicle.

Generally places that are open to the public fit in this category. Shopping centers, apartment complexes, office parking lots that also allow access to the public. Places that would not fit might be a fenced area with a gate that required a pass card or check in with a guard. The answer to your...View More
The first one was 80 in a 40 but I had a prior one from going 82 in an 45 and they are both for the same date. Should I pay them online or go to court? I was stupid and it’s my fault but I don’t know what will be better or how to deal with that
Do not pay by mail which is pleading guilty. You will loose your TNDL for points. Hire a competent attorney to represent you now to possibly work it out on at least one of the Citations. You may need a DOS Hearing. Do not get in any more trouble.

It was in a construction zone with no workers present. I don't travel that road often, and while I wasn't aware that I was going over 55-60 (I was in a pack of cars and I was the one he got), I cruised through a construction zone at 75.
The THP officer explained that the offense... View More
The Court Clerk should be able to determine the Fine, so call again. However you will probably be better off going to Court. It might get reduced or Diverted. The worse that can happen is a conviction, which is what payment by mail is.
