The officer that saw the alleged traffic infraction would have to sign a supporting deposition saying so. If there was a trial, the officer who witnessed the infraction would have to testify. If the government just brought in the cop that wrote the ticket, but did not observe the violation, his...Read more »
Wondering of rights as resident. Called town and being told keep kids out of road. Not addressing the law breaking of residents. Put slow down structure at foot of driveway. What else can I do to stop a child from being killed. What are the children's rights.
Petition the local city council or whatever form of government you have for placement of a speed limit sign etc. However kids should not be riding bikes on roadways unless they are fully competent, have helmets on etc. We lived on a road like that and that's one of the reasons we moved--no way...Read more »

If you are a traffic light that is a turn signal light, and there are only two circles (green and yellow), then when there is no light (both circles are black), are you allowed to wait at that intersection for the turn? Also, does that mean you are allowed to turn at your own discretion?
We both know that the third light is supposed to be red, but its broken. According to the NY vehicle and traffic law, you don't have to stop because the red light isn't visible HOWEVER if you drive into oncoming traffic, you will crash. So wait until the green light comes back.

On 2/7/19 we visited the Valley of Fire. When exiting the park I was pulled over and issued a ticket from a Tribal Officer from the Moapa Band of Paiutes. The officer said he clocked me in 3 different speed zones, all while he was parked near the exit just before I-15. I was given a ticket for $365... Read more »
traveling 2pm afternoon sunny day no traffic infractions. I believe NJ cannot enforce NY registration statutes as I have been ticketed for expired safety inspection but showed the statute reflecting their enforcing of only NJ registered vehicles.
He was picked up for 3 warrants. Aggravated unlicensed operator, obstructed view, and possession of a controlled substance 7th and has no bail. His public defender will not call me back and he has had no luck trying to call him. His mother is in the hospital very sick and almost died and he is my... Read more »
They need to release him within a week without bail if they don't do a probable cause hearing. The story sounds a bit extreme for a couple of non violent misdemeanors. Which Court are these charges filed in?
I am attempting to help an inmate have all tickets/fines dismissed while he is incarcerated. He is incarcerated at Coxsackie Correctional Facility in New York State. Is there a specific form they can request to have their counselor help file? Is this even possible? I seen something for California... Read more »
Pulled over for speeding via L-Laser, officer incorrectly named the vehicle year as 2007 (it is a 2017, not easy to make that typo since the 1 and 0 keys are not near each other. He also said that I drive a gray car, when I very clearly drive a tan/brown car. Is this ground for dismissal?
I live in NY state and they told me if I take defensive driving course, my ticket will be dissmiss. So, my question is if I send the receipt that shows I took the class, the court will accept it or not?
I was overseas from 2007 to 2018. Never knew about that speeding ticket. My license expired since 2012. When I went to renew my driving license thats when I found out about the incident. In the system its say COURT APPEARANCE . Will I be arrested ?
In New York the Courts don't arrest for traffic tickets which are aren't misdemeanors. They only suspend the driver's license. If you had a ticket for driving suspended, you could be be arrested for a short time.
