Not always. It really depends on what the salvage value is and what they get for it. Read the fine print of anything they give you as it should explain what you may be liable for once you give them title. Make sure to get your plates back
The statute says: No person shall willfully abandon a vehicle upon the public highways, bridges or tunnels of this State, or upon any highways, bridges or tunnels in this State operated by any authority of this State or by any authority created jointly by this State and any other State for the...Read more »
Received a ticket for parking too close to a fire hydrant at 4:48 am which I paid. Then just received a notice for another ticket, which apparently was issued at 8:16 am the same day. I did not receive this ticket and was not even aware of it until today. Do I have to also pay this one?
The statute states "No person shall cease to hold the reins in his hands while riding, driving, or conducting a horse.". I AM NOT SURE how this applies to motor vehicles except for horsepower of a vehicle and keeping hands on the steering wheel.
I’m supposed to have my regular license by now but I haven’t gotten the chance to change it to a regular one from probationary due to COVID and the DMV being so crowded. I told the officer and he did not acknowledge it and still ticket me for having “Probationary License”. Was I really... Read more »
I was unaware I was suspended but that was only due to me not checking my mail in time. I took all the necessary steps to restore everything, but I am concerned about point penalties and my driving privilege being revoked
Are you restored now? 3-40 is a very serious charge especially if the underlying suspension was due to no insurance. If you have been restored, it can be reduced to a less serious violation relatively easily with a fine (and possible surcharge) only. If not, you may need to get a lawyer and gear...Read more »
Maybe, we would need more information to properly answer your question such as a picture of the intersection where you made the turn as the intersection may have other traffic controls such as a road line etc.
There was a city parade the next day -- Saturday -- so they towed me. They didnt charge me for the tow but mailed me a ticket. When I parked there the night before the parade -- Fri night -- no signs were posted. The next day, I stayed home all day, they towed me. They did not attempt to contact... Read more »
I was heading back home at 9am from class and an officer stopped me because according to him I was speeding which I wasn't. There was even cars in front of me so there was no way I was speeding at all on a street with traffic. It was my first time getting pulled over ever, he said he was... Read more »
Yes a police officer can give you a ticket for something other than what they originally stopped you for. Also, the fact that the police officer put down the wrong color for your car is generally considered a clerical error and generally does not effect the validity of the ticket.
The Closest NjDMVs (70 miles) were closed due to staff COVID infections -on the 2 separate occasions that I had appts for. I showed the officer my valid insurance for the vehicle and the title and bill of sale. The car has been fully insured & I had the title and bill of sale. Despite... Read more »
Sure you can plead not guilty and explain your situation to the judge but unfortunately it still means you are guilty based on what you said. If you want the best defense your best choice is to always hire a good lawyer to find a defense for you.
Unsafe Driving on a third offense is a 4 point violation, whereas Careless can be a 2 point. There is also the 97.2 which is an unsafe on the first time which is a Zero Point but a 400.00 fine. so it all depends on the situation
You can always ask the Prosecutor, and the worst he can do is say no. Every Prosecutor is different and it depends on your demeanor and attitude and also if you gave the Police Officer that gave you the most recent ticket a "hard time." I strongly urge you to seek out competent counsel...Read more »
