Q: How should I proceed when getting a parking ticket in a spot that was not clearly labeled as Handicap space.

I was rushing to park in DC by the National Building Museum for work, parking in a spot that was not clearly labeled as Handicapped,

as the meter with the handicap marker was broken with the zone # on the side, I paid online instead. Please advise if you can help me avoid payment of the $500 fine.

When a court in Texas closes a case as a conviction, it means that you have been found guilty of the offense for which you were cited. In your case, because you did not comply with the conditions of the deferred disposition for your traffic ticket, the court proceeded to adjudicate guilt. This... View More

Law enforcement officers have the right to enforce traffic laws anywhere the public has a right to travel- even private property in most cases.

No, this is not a defense to the charge. However, I would still recommend that you request a trial and not a waiver hearing. Sometimes the police officer does not appear. Even if the police officer does appear and you are convicted, the judge can offer probation before judgment which avoids the... View More

If you do not have insurance at the time of the stop, then it is a crime. However sometimes you can get the charge dismissed with costs if you show up at Court with your new insurance card, registration and TNDL. It would be worth it to hire an attorney to represent you. Conviction for Lack... View More

Exceeding the speed limit by 25 miles an hour carries 4 points, and unfortunately, any conviction for an offense that carries 4 points or more is an automatic suspension license for an under-21 driver.
