Juan Ooink's answer Worst case, you will likely get Court Supervision and fine and have to complete Traffic Safety School. Best case, the ticket is dismissed if the other driver does not show up to court. If you are really concerned, you can hire an attorney to assist you with this matter.
Theodore J. Harvatin's answer Your GDL restrictions will be extended. Go to court and ask for supervision. In order to do that you have to have a parent or guardian present and you will have to take a safe driving course. If the other driver does not show up in court asked that the ticket be dismissed. You might want to have your parents hire a traffic attorney
Andrea Rogers' answer When you go to court, the judge will ask if you are pleading guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, the judge will sentence you and assess the fine & court costs. 3 points will be added to your driving record and your car insurance rates may increase as a result.
Or you can plead not guilty and the judge will set your case for a trial.
Or you can hire a traffic law attorney to get your ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction such as Illegal Parking or Littering....
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer My firm has about 30 years of combined traffic ticket experience. I have never heard of what you described. However, if there is no hold on your license - do you really care how it's possible?
Ali W Latif's answer A standard ticket for speeding 23 m.p.h. over the limit typically carries two points on one's driving record and a fine. Fines typically range from $150-500, depending on the jurisdiction. If your son accumulates 12 or more points within 2 years his license will be suspended for 6 months. The Ohio BMV sends out warning letters when a driver has accumulated 6 points. Therefore, unless there are exacerbating circumstances or facts you did not mention, his license will not be suspended from this...
Peter N. Munsing's answer If both cars are turning left, and if the center lane has a path directly ahead,but the person in the center lane decided to try to turn from that lane, anyone in the designated left turn lane has the right of way.
Peter N. Munsing's answer You can try. What is important is the date recited. If it says on February 20 the Defendant did...... you can plead not guilty. DJ courts aren't big on typos but there's a difference between a 20 and a 30, a february and a March--they might give it to you. Be careful if you win and have to drive that area--you can bet someone will be watching for you.
Andrea Rogers' answer Errors on tickets can be corrected by the police officer or prosecutor at any time. So just the incorrect identification of the vehicle on the tickets is not enough to get the tickets dismissed.
Mark Oakley's answer You request a trial by filling in and mailing the request form portion of the ticket located on the lower right side of the sheet. Check the “trial” box, not the “waiver hearing.” If the officer does not show, you’ll be found not guilty. If they show, you plead not guilty and tell your version of what happened. If you’re found guilty you request a “probation before judgment” (PBJ) which has the effect of striking the conviction and keeping your driving record clean (no points)....
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer It is not a criminal offense, cannot add points to your MVR and cannot be reported to a credit bureau for non payment. The city can sue you and take collection methods against you.
William James LaLima's answer Yes. 90 days in jail (or house arrest) It is mandatory. I *have* persuaded the arresting officer to rewrite a DUS 3rd ticket to a DUS 2nd offense ... It saves the 90 days in jail, BUT the DOT will still punish you as if it is a DUS 3rd.
(c) for a third or subsequent offense, fined one thousand dollars, and imprisoned for up to ninety days or confined to a person's place of residence pursuant to the Home Detention Act for up to ninety days. No portion of a term...
Brandon K. Davis' answer The insurance ticket should require a court appearance. Fines and costs would be assessed by the judge. Bring proof of insurance covering the time of the ticket. If you didn’t have it, bring after-acquired insurance to minimize fines and request court supervision. A conviction would cause a mandatory 3 month license suspension. Contact a local attorney to discuss options.
Daniel P Leavitt's answer It sounds like it is a criminal misdemeanor reckless driving charge and not a simple speeding ticket. Either way, I don't think there is anything you can do. You have ten days to appeal after a conviction and 60 days to file a motion to reopen. Some judges bend the 60 day rule but I don't know any judge that will bend anywhere near 3 years ago.
Brian Smith Esq's answer That attorney could file a motion to lift the warrant. These are frequently granted when a court sees an effort to resolve the ticket. A court may then schedule a pretrial where that attorney can work to resolve the ticket too. If the court will not withdraw the warrant, an attorney could help make arrangements to turn yourself in and resolve the ticket.
