Zachary Divelbiss' answer Those who hold a CDL are held to a higher standard and thus will not be allowed to attend defensive driving school. It is a law that was passed and is still in effect. Additionally, MVD may take corrective action against you and your CDL for even some of the most minor driving infractions. If your CDL is at risk of being suspended then you should fight your traffic case through court and the suspension through the MVD hearing process.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer Correct, Arizona used to completely allow cell phone use while driving. Now, certain cities have created their own laws that prohibit it. A violation will result in a civil fine. In addition, there have also been laws about the age of the driver (under 18) and their ability to use their phone in the car. Be sure to check where you live and common places where you drive for the most update to day laws regarding cell phone use.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer There should be some type of case number on your ticket, usually at the very top. If not, you will need to contact the court where the ticket was issued. The court information should also be on the ticket. The court will be able to give you the case number if you well them your name and date of birth. Then you can complete DDS.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer Your best option is to hire a lawyer who can help you with the charge and get it reduced or dismissed. There isn't exactly a "hide" option in court. Feel free to contact us before your next court date so we can help you email@example.com or 480-935-6545.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer At the next court date, he will need to bring proof of insurance with him. The court will either drop the charge or reduce the fine. This is a frequent issue and courts are pretty lenient.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer The quick answer is any ticket can be dismissed with the right circumstances. You should contact an attorney for a consultation to discuss your particular circumstances and likelihood of success. You should also be concerned about the fines that have been collecting since 2013 and I presume your license has also been suspended since then if you didn't resolve this matter back in 2013. We handle these type of matters and can help you.
Kai Michael Henderson's answer Generally speaking, it is extremely hard to fight racial profiling. Many people facing criminal charges want to use a civil rights violation as leverage against the State in a prosecution. This is unsuccessful in the vast majority of cases.
The best cases have the best evidence. If you recorded the encounter with the police yourself and the officer uttered racist epithets or admitted that he or she pulled you over based on race, you may have a good case. In the criminal, or traffic...
Zachary Divelbiss' answer Hello, you should consider asking your question again with a few more specific details and then we can provide a more specific answer. Right now it is unclear what is at issue. Thanks
Zachary Divelbiss' answer Every case is different and without any more information we cannot tell you what an appropriate plea would be. I recommend you contact myself or another attorney for a free consultation to discuss your particular situation.
Most pleas typically reduce harsher traffic violations to the 28-701A violation since it is basically the lowest violation. If charged with 28-701A you may get a plea for defensive driving school if it is not currently available to you since it can only be taken...
Peter Munsing's answer Not at all. First it would be inadmissible second it isn't what the case is about. You have a good argument to make if you couched it in terms of believing it was safe to do what you did. Depends on what --hypothetically--someone has been charged with.If you were hurt you may have a claim--hypothetically. Contact a member of AzTLA for the county where the wreck happened and as them.
Peter Munsing's answer A lot depends on who is where at what time. They shouldn't have two streams of traffic headed for the same area without a yields sign. With no sign see if your state has a law as to who yields to whom at an unsigned intersection. Suggest you ask your AAA office if they have a traffic safety person you can ask. Or ask the staties.
Matthew Maerowitz's answer You can make a public records request. If a crash report was drafted, it is usually available to the public upon request upon paying a small fee. Some jurisdictions allow you to get the crash report online if you know information related to the accident such as the incident number. You can typically find the information for the law enforcement records department online about how to get the report.
Peter Munsing's answer See if there was an intersection camera.Act fast,request in person. If the light normally would go yellow you have a problem as you entered the intersection on a yellow. However worth a consult with an attorney. If you were hurt, contact a member of the Az Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults--as you may have an argument that you had "position" on the other driver.
Matthew Maerowitz's answer The standard for an officer to initiate a traffic stop is actually Reasonable Suspicion (not Probable Cause). Reasonable suspicion is a lower standard than probable cause. You really should consider hiring an attorney as we are very familiar with writing suppression motions. With reasonable suspicion don't get your hopes up on winning it. In practice, if an officer suspects any traffic violation at all, judges typically uphold the stop as legal.
