Tickets are class c misdemeanors, and an officer has the right to arrest an individual charged with a class c misdemeanor (except for speeding), take them to jail, make them appear in front of a judge, have a bond amount set, then post bond. Local jails, however aren't big enough to have everyone...Read more »
The short answer is yes, what the officer did was permissible, and you could have been arrested for the offense. Take the title of the vehicle in question along with the most recent registration receipt to the local county tax office to remedy the situation. Good luck.
That happens sometimes. Consider putting a recurring event on your calendar that reminds you to call them every Wednesday at 10am. If you are bad at using your calendar perhaps set an alarm on your smart phone for that purpose.
My daughter was involved in a traffic incident in Montgomery County. She was not issued a citation at the time of the incident. Later that evening she began receiving calls from the constable asking to meet with her in person so he could issue the citation in person. She said she'd speak with... Read more »
If I were the attorney I would have called the Constable and inquired directly what the problem was and told him if a ticket was being issued he can fax it to me, and we will get a not guilty plea filed for her.
Yes you can, and what we usually do under facts like this is try to get the Judge to allow you to pay the Fail to Appear and dismiss the no insurance. The FTA is not a moving violation and it keeps you from getting a suspension for no insurance and surcharges.
I went back the next day to video my exact route. To show that there are no visually posted signs with in the area the officer claimed I was speeding. Which is roughly about a 1 mile distance between the streets.

You were not arrested and did not give false information so this shouldn't apply. But, officer's often threaten to arrest for failure to identify. Whether a crime or not, right or wrong, you should give your id if you want to make 100% sure the cop doesn't decide to arrest, your car gets towed,...Read more »
Says its from 2012 and I have a warrant. I have been pulled over since then and there was no problems. I don't know anything about this ticket and I keep asking to see an actual copy of it. Also when you click on ticket payment system it says offense date 9/19/2012 and court date 1/1/0001. I... Read more »
Contact an attorney in the county where the citation was allegedly issued and have her/him check the court records (not the records of the collection agency that is attempting to get your money). Good luck.
File an identity theft report with the police, contact the court that entered the conviction, discover the specifics of the citation in question and have an attorney see about filing a motion for new trial or bill of review. God luck.
I was pulled over for speeding, and only given a warning. But the officer said I had a warrant for no OR expired license back from 2011. I’ve always taken care of tickets & infractions and I have no recollection of this happening. I’m not sure why EIGHT years later I am just now hearing about... Read more »
You can bond a bond to recall the warrant and set the matter on the contested docket if you do not believe you are guilty of the offense. Or you can contact an attorney who can probably post the bond at a lower cost and plead not guilty. Or you can just pay the ticket, but this will cause a...Read more »
You may enter a plea of guilty/no contest, which will cause a fine to be entered and a conviction to be reported on your driving record, or you can enter a plea of not guilty and schedule a court date. Calling a local attorney might help. Good luck.
My state inspection and registration is joined, expired 12/18, was cited on 1/28, but the state website says you have 90 days from expiration to renew, so I was still within that grace period, correct? Also literally no police officer or court official has known the answer to this question, and I... Read more »
