Merged onto I-94 only to see troopers in the median. unsure of my speed but know I was moving with the flow of traffic. Trooper claims 20mph, but before pulling me over he was going in and out of traffic switching lanes racing down the road for ~0.5-1 mile. He then decides to move to the left... Read more »
Ultimately, the officer only needs reasonable articulable suspicion to pul you over. There would be a police report and either dash cam footage, body cam footage or both of the traffic stop. It is impossible to know why you were pulled over without accessing that information. You can certainly...Read more »
So I was going 90 on a 65mph and they said that they were gonna send me a letter in the mail telling me if I’m going to pay for the ticket or I’m going to court can I go to jail for this? Even know I’m a teenager.
I recently received this speeding ticket apparently in 2004. I don't understand, why I just got it now? The address I currently live wasn't on my drivers license then. I currently live in a different state from the issued ticket. I'm confused as in what I should do.
Was suppose to send me their evidence and hasn't yet. Court is march 12. The cop didnt actually stop anyone at first, he stopped on the freeway got out of his car and started flagging ppl over. I was in front of him & could see him in my mirror. The truck behind me also stopped. I waited, he didnt... Read more »
Fight it in court, ideally with a lawyer. The discovery request you make to the prosecutor should be written. Then follow their directions to get full discovery. Or your lawyer will. You may be asked to pay copy costs. 80 in a 70 is still guilty, so work on other defenses.
I stopped appropriately behind a school bus, and when that one went, I went too. There was a second bus stopped at the corner, let the first bus by, and then put the stop sign out AS I was passing it and started honking at me. He did not put out the stop arm until I was right next to him. And he... Read more »

Had been pulled over a handful... Read more »
You might have a legal argument to prevent the suspensions. I would look into retaining an attorney to look into the situation so the exact facts are known and then to follow up with DVS and if necessary the Court.
Yes. The incorrect information on the citation is not a silver bullet that will get you out of the ticket. These types of errors happen frequently and my guess is that the traffic stop is either on squad video or body cam footage.
A common condition of probation for a DWI is that you not have any driver’s license or insurance violations. This ticket could result in a probation violation. I recommend having an attorney assist you to minimize the consequences of this ticket.
These errors are not going to get you out from under the citation. There is likely a police report and perhaps a dash cam/squad video of the traffic stop. Get an attorney if you wish to contest the ticket. An attorney might help you avoid or minimize the consequences for whatever happened here.
the back window. I'm an older woman and tried to put them on, but could not get them to stay. And, I could never get the front one off. They never originally removed my plates. as of now it does not show in the system yet. The ticket says "original" and there is no Officer name or Controlling... Read more »
You could check the Minnesota Rules for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. Or call a Driver Evaluator at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to check. If it were me, I'd go to court and work to prevent a conviction. If no conviction, then it can't go on the Driver's License Record.
