Unless you can prove someone else was driving your truck and parked it at the gas pump while you were getting gas, it appears obvious to me that you must have violated the law by driving on a suspended license to the gas station. So, rather than try to argue the fine points of Ohio traffic laws and...Read more »
Not sure how you know there are "no rules for a (sic) illegal window when you can see clearly out of it." But I will advise you not to raise that excuse as your only defense if you do go to court. Strong advise: Pay the fine and then get the cracked window fixed. In Florida it costs...Read more »
If your son was caught speeding, it does not matter whether the officer had to write two tickets because he "made a mistake." However, if this traffic offense is your son's first, it is highly unlikely that his license will be suspended.
My boyfriend/father of my child was pulled over earlier by a state trooper here in Ohio. He is on probation until August of this year for Domestic violence and unlawful restraint. He got a ticket for no seatbelt and driving under suspension. He also does not have car insurance which they will find... Read more »
I received a speeding ticket in Ohio from a State Highway Patrolman, and the court date was set as TBD. It's been almost a month, and I still have not received a summons. Can I get in trouble for not showing up to Court for my ticket, even though I never received an official Court date?
At a minimum, the court is likely to suspend his license, fine him, and put him on probation for acting recklessly and irresponsibly -- in hopes of making a significant enough impression that he won't risk his life and teh lives of others when he is eventually allowed to drive again.
Can a police officer be illegally parked on the side of the road to give a speeding ticket? He was on the side of the highway with no lights anywhere and his car lights turned off, past sunset, I was wondering how if that would be illegal for me if it’s okay for them to break the law to enforce...

You will be summoned to go to court, fined, and probably have your license suspended by the judge. You are a new driver with little driving experience. The judge is likely to think that you don't even have enough experience to be driving 55 in a 55, so will think that speeding 20 miles over...Read more »
I cannot say without checking with the court. You may want to contact the court so you can talk to them about this. Or you may want to consult with an attorney for help resolving this. What I can say is that, when a warrant is issued, Ohio courts will mark the case as closed until the warrant is...Read more »
Nearing an exit, couldn’t stop quickly enough when other driver braked suddenly. No airbag deployment. Bumper nearly off on other car, minimal damage to our car. Uses car to go to school and music lessons. Hearing different recommendations on pleading guilty or not (how can you even say not... Read more »
"Not guilty" remains the starting point no matter how guilty you are. If there was insurance and a proper license in place, this will be no big deal. The court will want to make sure the victim is whole, and give your kid a fine. Your insurance carry may increase your rates, and that will...Read more »
No. Under Ohio State Law, that offense becomes jailable on a third offense for driving under suspension in 3 years (doesn't matter whether the first two suspension were for FRA or another reason). Furthermore, cities and towns have their own laws and are free to up the penalties (which many...Read more »
I was cited for running a red light but I did not . The other driver that hit me said I ran it and a witness said I ran it but our insurance companies investigated and had to throw out the witness statement because he contradicted what he told the cop he is now saying the other driver ran it . Will... Read more »
You'll need to subpoena the witnesses you want unless they are willing to come voluntarily. If the independent witness is now saying it was the other driver who ran the light, that should certainly help.
If you already paid the ticket or went to court, there is little chance of going back. If you haven't yet, plead not guilty, get a court date, and talk to the prosecutor, or better yet, have a lawyer do so. Such reductions are fairly common.
