If you are convicted you will be assessed a fine and points on your record. You may want to consider a diversionary program such as the traffic education program which is offered by most solicitor offices.
As long as the ticket is under his name and license number it should not cause you any problems. There is no way to amend the ticket without appearing in court on the court date, but, again, that should not be necessary.
I have no recollection of it, also, I ALWAYS pay promptly. $250/month has come off my credit card for my auto insurance since 9/2/2017...when I've always paid only $85. I believe this is a ticket error or traffic ticket fraud. Please advise! Thx.
You have not investigated this speeding ticket. Hire a competent attorney to check into it. But if SC does not send a release to TN Dept of Safety, you will probably have to pay it in full. Otherwise you will have to go hire a SC attorney, file a suit, and probably get a case of home cooking.
I was sentenced under the first offenders act a few years ago and was more recently arrested for maximum limits + reckless driving (first offense). Is it likely I could have my probation and First Offenders revoked?
I received a Careless Operation ticket based on a supposed call the officer received (which is absolutely bogus). He claimed he got several calls I was running people off the road and that’s why he pulled me over. Even though he didn’t see me do any of this I received a ticket. Should I go to... Read more »
1 ticket has box marked 4-81 "Failure to observe signal". 2nd one no box marked, officer put statute no 39:6B-2 for No liability insurance. I showed him my insurance, but was late in finding it as I was not able to search the insurance in my phone immediately. He said he gave me a warning. I am not... Read more »
If a ticket has a court date it is not a warning. I suggest a lawyer as the penalties for these tickets especially the no insurance ticket is very severe. Unfortunately you are required to show the officer your insurance proof when he arrives at your window, he/she does not need to wait for you...Read more »
The police used a technique called pacing. The evidence in court will be his testimony. It will be his word against yours. It will be his credibility against yours. You need to take the stand, be creditable, be believable, and explain why you would never knowingly speed in plain sight of a police...Read more »
I am a tourist visiting the US and got an 80/70 ticket in the hire car. The officer misread my papers and issued the summons entering my middle name as my surname, my real surname not appearing at all.
The court list for the hearing day has been published on the VA Courts website, and my... Read more »
Going 74 in a 55, just over the border into TN where the limit changes from 70 (I believe) to 55. The officer said to just go to the website and pay, but there’s no amount listed on the ticket. The box saying I can pay via mail or online is checked, so I am not required to go to court. Do I need... Read more »
When you pay that Speeding Citation, you will no longer have a perfect MVR. Call the General Sessions Court for the County you were apprehended in. They will gladly tell you how much the Ticket is and how to pay them. That is an admission of Guilt. You may wish to hire a competent attorney...Read more »
Im 19 clean driving record and got pulled over in a school zone, 38 in a 20 what should I expect with or without a lawyer. I had a discussion with the officer on the side of the road that there was cars near me and he said that didn't matter. I was unaware I was still in the school zone and the... Read more »
No. In Minnesota a police officer giving a traffic citation to a driver is not required to tell the driver the amount of the fine; nor is the citation required to state that amount. However, the driver can learn that information online on the court's website or by calling or visiting the court....Read more »
We are a business. All of my trucks and vans have commercial plates as they should. I have a few passenger cars that have lettering.. These cars are driven by my sales staff. We got a violation that we need commercial plates because we have lettering on these vehicles. When we call the DMV, they... Read more »
"Every motor vehicle registered in this State which is used over any public road, street, or highway or any public or quasi-public property" it says I have to use the vehicle, but it was parked and not in use.
You can see if the Prosecutors Office is willing to negotiate the case with you. If you pay the ticket it will likely increase your insurance rates therefore, if the prosecutors office is not willing to negotiate with you, consider hiring an attorney.
state is wrong and my address state is wrong. I was doing 72 in a 65 with another car right next to me. The officer clocked that car first at 70 and choose to pull me over. On the ticket he put down 72 in a 55 which is false. When I pulled over it was in front of a speed limit sign stating 65. What... Read more »
The likely hood of a dismissal is so close to zero as to be virtually indistinguishable - especially if you try and handle it yourself and roll up into to Court saying all the incredibly irrelevant things you did in your question. Just hire the cheapest traffic attorney you can find and oh yeah,...Read more »
How much of the information is incorrect? Generally, the State can correct the scriveners errors at any time so its not likely it will be dismissed. However, if the ticket is more wrong than correct, you may find a sympathetic prosecutor to agree to dismiss or defer. Call the prosecutors office...Read more »

She has court in a few days and I still haven’t been able to put her under my insurance policy but the car has insurance now. My question is, is having the... Read more »
My daughter got a summons and has to appear in court in 2 weeks in South Hackensack, NJ. She was on her lunch break and trying to find a Chipotle. Tapped her GPS on her phone which was affixed to the dashboard, so hands-free. She was coming to a stop at a light when she did this. Not sure if it... Read more »
The answer is Maybe the law states that you may turn on or off a function are they following so it would depend on what she was doing and what the officer believe that she's doing. If it's a third offense definitely hire a lawyer if it's a 1st or 2nd it's cheaper to pay it
