I got pulled over for going 86 on a 40 work zone. State trooper gave me a pass for that due to my clean record. He said he'd cite me for not turning hazard lights on when pulled over. In the citation there's a confidential information section, that says i was pulled over for going 86 on a... Read more »
The only thing that will be made part of the public record is that you received a citation for violated section 4305 (the hazard lights). The trooper likely wrote 86 in a 40 in other section in the event you were to challenge the citation in court - it would remind him as to why he initially pulled...Read more »
No. If the sticker wasn't expired is a defense. The fact the cop missed a couple of numbers won't get you anywhere. Get the car inspected and maybe they'll drop it. In the meantime, don't drive it around without inspection.
I was pulled over and given a ticket by an officer for not stopping at a stop sign. He claimed that I had rolled through a stop sign. Then proceeded to tell me which street I had not stopped on. The issue is the street he stated was not where the incident had happened. He stated it and also wrote... Read more »
Yes, that would be a fatal error unless the judge allows the officer to amend the citation when you go to court. Get a lawyer because you will have a better result especially if you have to fight this issue. It is points on your license and you don’t want your insurance to be affected. Good luck
You cannot withdraw your guilty plea but you have 30 days from when he fully with need to file an appeal in the county court. You will then get a new court date. Get a lawyer to represent you so hopefully you can get your points reduced. You will get a letter from PennDOT shortly that imposes...Read more »
It depends on the judge whether you should go to traffic school or not. Your speed is a five point major violation but it is not too terribly fast so that’s why I believe traffic school is optional. It is definitely worth it to go to court to try to get the points reduced and also, many judges...Read more »
Possibly. Was the color correct? Was the license plate correct. Get a lawyer to help you. If it cant be fought then perhaps you can get a reduction of points so your insurance doesnt find out. Good luck!
I was pulled over for running a stop sign. I know I stopped and my passenger confirmed this as well. The officer did not ask me to sign anything or give me a ticket. Instead he said I would get a citation in the mail. I have asked around and no one locally (it was a local officer) has heard of... Read more »
It is not uncommon but the citation must be filed within 30 days. It is a 3 point offense on your record so it is worth it to plead not guilty. Many judges will let your lawyer go to court for you so you may not even have to attend the court hearing to get your points reduced. Good luck!
I was pulled over for speeding. I was trying to speed up to pass and change lanes because the car behind me was driving way to close to my tail. Officer pulled me over. Didn't end up giving me a speeding ticket when I explained it but did give me a ticket for not putting on my flashers when he... Read more »
I can for certain that if you have a Pennsylvania license, you will not receive any points for that section. That may vary if you have an out of state license, but I have never seen that section result in points even for an out of state license. Best wishes.
I received a traffic ticket for unsafe lane change in May. The same ticket from another DJ office in August. Docket on both the 1st dismissed on 8/6 & 2nd one was filed. Officer did not file the original ticket at the correct DJ office. Can I claim statue of limitation since the 2nd ticket was... Read more »
I received a written warning in a company car. I live in PA and the written warning is in MD. Will the written warning show up on my driving record? If not, is there any way my company could find out about the written warning? I am also unsure of when anything would show up on a driving record. Any... Read more »
I was ticketed through the mail in March of 2020, I contested it, received an initial court date in January of 2021. The DJ stated that she would need the officer who actually ticketed me on resubmitted my court date, telling me it would be a few weeks. My court is set for Nov 30th and I am... Read more »
I was cited "failed to drive within a single lane and or movement from lane was not made safely" by a state trooper. I plead not guilty to that citation in July. Today I receive notice that my license will be suspended tomorrow due to failing to respond to the same citation and lists the... Read more »
I struck a vehicle making a sharp left turn. I exchanged information with the driver and I continued as normal. Months later I receive a citation in the mail for a hit & run. I have proof that it wasn't a hit and run. Pictures, the drivers info etc. I went to court over this and the Judge... Read more »
I was recently pulled over in Pennsylvania for a registration that expired in August. Upon being stopped, the officer informed me that my license is coming back as suspended. I served a 30 day license suspension from June to July 17th, however was never made aware that I have to restore my license.... Read more »
You need to speak with an experienced traffic attorney. If a judge sees that your license was suspended at the time you were pulled over then you will most likely be found guilty and lose your license for an entire year. Hiring an attorney would be a wise choice
Received a ticket for expired registration. Expired 12/2020 and I forgot to renew. The police was sitting by a stop sign and running plates. This is my first offense and I have a clean driving record. Is there anything I can do or do I just need to plead guilty and pay the fine(s)?
Frankly, if there are no points you are better off paying it. Judges tend not to favor those who already got a break, and if you were doing almost 30 over or even 20 over they will consider it a monster break.
I'm not sure how you would fight it without the judge knowing that it was...Read more »
