I feel like my 1st amendment rights to freedom of press and speech are being attacked, I filed a complaint and the supervisor blew me off and said he won't argue the constitution with me, deal with the ticket in court. I don't feel I should be picked on by law enforcement when I am not... Read more »
Without determining whether the police are right or wrong here, they are right about one practical aspect of the law: you won't win an argument about law or fact with the police on the streets; that is what courts are for.
Your first amendment right to watch the police while in public...Read more »
Supervision is a disposition of guilt that is not a conviction. The Secretary of State keeps track of supervision internally, therefore your insurance company should not find out about it. Good luck. Al
I’m in Michigan. I was previously granted my license then lost it to a technicality, had a breathalyzer in car and battery died which caused it to say I was tampering with it, I appealed that and won and was granted license back. Before my license paperwork came I drove stupidly for dr appt and... Read more »
I doubt that they will allow you to have a reconsideration. But to answer your question, if they did give you a hearing for reconsideration and you again lost, you could still appeal to Circuit Court, if the situation falls within one of the limited circumstances in which an appeal to the court is...Read more »
Depends on what traffic infraction you are accused of violating----not all traffic violations results in points. Usually, it the moving violations and in some instances, violations involving your driver's license and/or insurance sometimes end up resulting in points in some jurisdictions....Read more »
Assuming this is a traffic ticket and no great bodily harm was caused, it is highly unlikely you will be detained for your failure to appear if you go to court and answer for the bench warrant. Actually, I would call the court house and ask them and they most likely will tell you the amount of the...Read more »
While traveling (California), I saw an article about speeding tickets and things most people don't know about them. It stated that an out of date speed study/survey for the road the speed citation was issued on was grounds to have it dismissed. Is this the case in Louisiana also? Thank you in... Read more »
If I have a medical exemption that allows me to have 5% tint on my car windows, but I want to avoid the inevitable - being pulled over left and right by police officers because of my tint just to end up showing them my medical exemption, but I still end up late, harrassed, perhaps with a ticket for...

Petition the MVA to adopt a regulation that allows the MVA to create and issue a decal you can affix to the exterior of the car notifying the law enforcement that the vehicle owner has a certified medical waiver for tinted windows. It would have to have an expiration date corresponding to the...Read more »
Generally no. Other factors may change the answer (any fatality invovled, Class A endorcement or not, etc). Careless driving summons are among the frequently issued tickets in NJ just like reckless driving ones in NY.
Admittedly I was speeding around 25 over briefly to around 15 over to get away from vehicles intentionally preventing me from passing. I then noticed a cop weave in and out of traffic to get behind me and I waited to be pulled over. He then followed me for about a 1/2 mile to a mile without pulling... Read more »
Yes, but the officer would have to be able to identify you in court as the driver. If he was behind you the whole time he is going to have some issues. Plead not guilty and get a lawyer as 25 over is 4 points on your license. Good luck
So I got pull over cause my tags were expired and so the officer pull me over and came to the window and asked me "you know the reason why I pulled u over" and I reply yes cause of my tags. So the officer asked me and the passengers for our ID (3 people in the car) so we hand them our ID... Read more »
Go to Court in a respectful manner. Dress decent and talk to the DA or Judge politely. Quickly explain what happened. Have cash on you. Possibly you will be diverted or dismissed, or you might plea to a MVR nonreportable 9 mph over.
I was making a left hand turn out of a single lane while leaving my neighborhood at an intersection with a traffic light. The light turned green and I proceeded left into a two lane, but merged into the far right lane to avoid glass near the left hand lane in the intersection. After I passed the... Read more »
Prosecution has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed a traffic offense----and you have a right (but you do not have to do so) to present a defense. It sounds like you have a defense---I would contact a traffic ticket lawyer or 3 in your area, discuss your ticket and...Read more »

When you say dus, are you referring to driving under a suspension? For any charge, the state has the burden of proof. If they lack the evidence to prove that you were driving it sounds like you need to fight the charge. Doing this by yourself can be very difficult. I recommend finding a...Read more »
