It is unlawful to leave an unattended car on the side of most roads in every state. And--depending upon which road it is, the authorities will be sure to give tickets (and may even impound cars) when in interest of public safety.
Means the berm shouldn't be used for travel, the highway is. Thus "driving in lanes meant for travel" is the vehicular code perverse citation for didn't stay in lane of travel and went off the side of the road.

There is no constitutional right to drive. Driving is a privilege. That means you have to do what it takes to have the license and follow the rules. If you driver's license is suspended, you may be able to get a permit to drive to work, school, medical, lawyer, etc. You will have to visit any...Read more »
I have never been in trouble with the law before. The officer told me to just pay my fine and see afterwards if i could get it of my record. He marked it as a traffic offense but not a criminal offense. I am worried because I don't want to lose my job, license or anything. Can someone please help... Read more »
It's only a traffic offense. You will not lose your job or license. Go to court and ask the prosecutor to keep this off your record. If it is clean, you might have to pay a few bucks more on the fine but should be able to keep it off your record.

You need to have an attorney arrange for you to appear in each Court and surrender on the warrants. You may be able to set up a time pay if you are guilty of the underlying offense and plead guilty to them.
If you get stopped by police you may be detained with those warrants outstanding.
I have a suspended license, so i got a 24 volt electric scooter. I got stopped and got a driving on suspended license ticket. I dont think im required to have a license to ride it but the cop said, if my license is suspended, i cant ride it.
There are certain laws and regs that I would need to look at in order to determine whether your electric Scooter would require a license, my gut says yes. But, I think your best opportunity to get rid of this ticket or to try to downgrade it to some other small non-moving violation would be...Read more »
I'm don't understand what you mean by does your driving record show there are no citations. But driver control should be able to answer your questions about your record being released or getting your license back.
With fines and court costs you can be charged more than $265.00. It depends on the court and the judge as to what your fine will be for careless. Best bet is to negotiate it with the prosecutor if possible.
