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 »
I’m 24 and until last month have never had a ticket of any kind or ever even been pulled over. Last month Around 2/12 I got a speeding ticket on the highway for going 81 in a 65. Earlier tonight I was driving back home from purchasing a new car which is much faster than the current one I own.... 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 »
As long as you can be identified in some way, yes the ticket is likely valid and any incorrect information can simply be amended by the ADA. However, ff everything is wrong including the name and license number, you may be able to just ignore the ticket. You will know if you have been identified...Read more »
16 year old bounced check warrant in NC. I live in another state right now. I just found out about the warrant. I hired a lawyer. He now has a court date for me. Being i now have a court date, does that nullify the warrant til court date? Also isnt there a statute of limitations on this. All also... Read more »
If you have already hired an attorney, the logical thing for you to do would be to call the attorney you hired. Asking questions on a public forum like this kinda defeats the purpose of having hired an attorney. As to whether the warrant is still active - sometimes they are stricken prior to the...Read more »
Cabarrus County’s DA’s Office doesn’t accept driving school for reductions or dismissals. The available option in Cabarrus County is a reduction, either to a lesser speed, or to a non-moving violation such as Improper Equipment, all of which depends on your prior driving history. Contact a...Read more »
I was traveling 60 in a 45mph zone (thought it was posted as a 55) my dilemma is I haven't settled on an attorney in which I want to hire, mostly financial reasons at the moment. I was curious to see how I should address my need to the da or judge. Thank you
There are likely plenty of local attorneys who would have worked with you regarding payment. If the address on your ticket is correct, I am sure you received a crap ton of letters from them so you shouldn't have even had to leave you house to shop around. So this smells like procrastination...Read more »
The second cop who stopped me ran it through the system and said it wasn't suspended and doesn't know why the first cop gave me a ticket, but said I still have to go to court. I don't know what to do. I dont think I should have to pay the ticket because the officer lied and said it... Read more »
Let's just get things nice and sparkling clear. Because you very clearly have a few wrong ideas here. First, you weren't stopped for a suspended license - you were likely stopped for something else and then the issue of a potential suspend license came up. Second, the charge you...Read more »
Yellow lights and I could not see if the stop sign was out it was dark I went past them and looked in my rear view and the lights were still yellow the car behind me stopped. Should I be worried about a ticket or points?
Depends on what you mean by "on a 2 lane with a turn lane'. If you mean there were two lanes in your direction of travel, a turn lane in the middle and two lanes in the other direction of travel with the school bus stopped in the opposite direction of travel - then you have no obligation...Read more »
I was pulled over for speeding 64 in a 45. I explained my situation and the officer understood. He gave me a warning. However, my license was recently expired as I just turned 21 in late December and did not realize that they expired so soon after. He wrote me a ticket for “Operate a Motor... Read more »

He is unsure but thinks he got a ticket which was paid however we have no info from 20 years ago. Is there any way to get this... Read more »
