Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Since he hit you from behind, it probably doesn't matter whether he had his headlights on. And whether you saw him or not probably doesn't matter either. What does matter is that, if he had his headlights on he should have seen you and if he didn't that may have contributed to the accident. So it appears that he is at fault in any case. Be sure you report this to your insurance company.
Andrew Lawrence Moses' answer He can pay the $23 reinstatement fee and request a hearing. I am sure that he never received the notice but he will need to pay in order to make sure that his license does not go into suspension.
Jay R. Rooth's answer Yes, but the officer can amend the citation prior to the hearing. However, it sounds like the officer has a bunch of facts mixed up in the citation which will help for the hearing. At the end of the day if the officer testifies under oath that he recalls you driving at excessive speed, you will most likely be found in violation, unless you are able to defend the speeding portion of the case. How did he measure your speed? Has the speed measuring device been properly maintained? Does the...
Eric J Dirga's answer I deal with the tickets. I will agree that the entire Red Light Camera debacle is a scam for money, not safety. When we were able to fight these and win on the evidence (or lack thereof) things were good. That ended around 2013. After that, all the attitudes of the judges and hearing officers changed. All of a sudden the evidence was let in.
The shortened amber light times that came into effect right as the state law was enacted was suspicious. Changing the amber times required an...
Allen C. Ladd's answer Thank you for your very thoughtful and courteous question! I don't see any problem at all with the H-1B process. It's when driving and alcohol mix that there are serious serious consequences. Piacere!
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Did you think that going to school would get the ticket off of your record? If doing so in fact would do that, and I have my doubts, did you submit proof of taking the course to the appropriate agency?
Sasha Dadan Bonna's answer You should obtain a lawyer for your case immediately. You were likely charged with driving with a suspended license in Florida. PA is part of "The Driver License Compact" which means Florida would treat the offense as if it had been committed at home, applying home state laws to the out-of-state offense.
Unfortunately, when you sell a car you are obligated to immediately notify the DMV of the sale, in order to prevent something like this from happening. The ticketing authority has no idea who you sold the car to if you haven't done that. Since you didn't do so, you are liable for the tickets; you are probably going to have to pay them.
"... Vehicles owned or leased by private security agencies may show or display green and amber lights, with either color being no greater than 50 percent of the lights displayed, while the security personnel are engaged in security duties on private or public property. …"
Charles M. Baron's answer You did not ask a question, but you seem to be wondering what to do in this situation. Also, I assume that the lawyer sent you some sort of demand regarding damages for bodily injury. The first step is to look at the police report - what does it say about who was in which car, and about bodily injury? However, since you are in this situation, I'm guessing you did not stick around for the police response to the accident after you struck the parked car, and that the other driver lied to the...
