First, getting Improper Equipment is a reduction, not a dismissal, so it will be on your driving record. I suggest consulting with an experienced local traffic attorney in the county where you got the ticket to do review your other driving history with you, and advise you accordingly. If this...Read more »
Just hire a traffic attorney in the area where you are to appear in court (this will be listed at the top of the ticket) - easy peasy lemon squeezy. Problem solved and hiring an attorney is way better than paying it off or appearing yourself and bumbling it because you do not know what you are...Read more »
This is a serious criminal traffic charge. If the stop arm was not extended and / or the red lights flashing - you should not have gotten a ticket. You should consult with a local traffic attorney to see what your options are. Best of luck.
Actually, it is more a question of what you shouldn't do - you shouldn't try and handle this yourself. Doing your own legal work is the functional equivalent of attempting to rebuild your's cars transmission if you aren't a mechanic - the results are often similar as well. So...Read more »
You are likely going to have to take care of the ticket in some fashion. Paying it off is usually not a good idea.

That is kinda like saying if I kill someone will they dismiss the charges if I throw away the gun. They would likely consider dismissing the charges if you got the car fixed and got the tags and inspection squared away. Maybe even if you got a new car with current tags. However, they are not...Read more »

After I paid the fine NCDMV says eligible to reinstate. It currently says that still. Upon reinstating the National Driver registry... Read more »
The bottom line here is if you get tickets and don't properly / timely take care of them, bad things happen - and the more time that goes by, the more confusing and difficult it is to wade thru the administrative sludge to get the bad things resolved (especially by yourself). You do not need...Read more »
Typically the letters indicate the method used to detect the speed. Usually R stands for Radar, P stands for Paced. Sometimes the officer will indicate whether their patrol car was moving or sitting by adding M or S.
In 2012, I was in a bad car accident with my two small children. I went to court for it and was found not at fault. Later on the others guys insurance(geico) asked a different judge to suspend my license until I paid them 16,000! I explained to them, after finding out that my license was suspended... Read more »
Your best bet is to hire a traffic attorney. Most likely DMV will determine if you can be reinstated and under what terms. At this point, it is likely neither the court nor a Judge has any authority regarding your suspension. Best of luck.
You hire a traffic attorney. Doing your own legal work is the functional equivalent of attempting to rebuild your cars transmission if you aren't a mechanic. If you leave things as they are you will likely see an insurance increase for the next 3 years and points on your license. Depending...Read more »
The most likely reason is the clerk's office screwed something up or possibly the reduction wasn't to something that can be paid off. You really should just hire a local traffic attorney instead of attempting to handle it yourself. I mean, if your car's transmission breaks down and...Read more »
Under normal circumstances a Failure to Reduce Speed ticket should likely have been dismissed (meaning there would be nothing for you to have to pay) so if you handled this yourself - odds are you didn't do it right. If you do not pay, yes a $200 penalty will likely apply and DMV will be...Read more »
Being able to get your license depends, of course, upon your eligibility for reinstatement with the DMV. Now, if you're waiting on a DMV hearing, that usually means that you have a current set or permanent suspension suspending your privileges, thus you'd need to have the hearing and win...Read more »

Of course, it's not true. You think driving school is free? Even if you go to court yourself and get approved for driving school, you still have to pay the court cost and fine - typically $263 plus the cost of driving school and you had to waste all your time in court and driving school -...Read more »
The best next step is to hire a local traffic attorney and not go to court and try and handle this yourself. Look at it this way, if you aren't a mechanic would you ever think to just go and crack into your car's transmission and try and rebuild that bad boy? It's the same for...Read more »
If one was 91/65 and the other was 74/45 - then they aren't the same now are they? And since you have two citations, it is pretty obvious you not only can be but were in fact charged with both and if you keep driving the way these offices have alleged you were driving, you are going to get...Read more »
