It, now as of this day sept 24th 2020 i found this out, now they are telling me call tomorrow business hours, public safety dept told me they will get the officers that pulled me over to call me, keep my phone close.
One ticket was Driving Over Statutory Limit 21-25, 95 over 70. The other was Operating Uninsured Motor Vehicle. Trooper told me to bring proof of insurance to court, and that one may get dismissed. I have several documents showing active insurance, including the CORRECT insurance card. (I... Read more »
I got caught speeding. I was going 83 in a 45. He only charged me 70 in a 45 I believe. I am new to the area. I moved he last month to go to college at gvsu and I just didn't know how fast roads are. I came from Texas that is a state that drives really fast so I'm used to going 80 on back... Read more »
How much time and money do you want to spend to find out how much you still owe and how many points will be added to your license? Your explanation is not a legal defense. As you are in college, you probably have better things to do with your time than fight this.
I got a ticket for property damage when I hit a mailbox. The law told me to go fix it the next day I did. I didn't turn it in on my insurance because it wasn't that bad. When I went to court they need proof that it's fixed. I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of proof is... Read more »
I got pulled over about 5 months ago for speeding and I still havnt received a date for a court hearing. My car registration just expired and I need to renew it. Will I be able to renew it while waiting for the court hearing or will the ticket prevent me from renewing the registration?
You can absolutely register the car!! The pending speeding ticket will not prevent this. Many ticket hearings are backed up due to Covid. Be sure you sent it in on time, kept a copy of the ticket, and know what court to call if you dont hear from anyone within the month. You should have heard from...Read more »
While conducting a traffic enforcement stop - the officer asks vehicle operator to roll down tinted windows (example: 0 percent tint). If that reveals contraband is that in plain view? - or does the action of rolling down windows alter?
Why is a LEO different from a GEMINI or a TAURUS? An officer has the right to ask you to step out of the vehicle and if opening the door would reveal the contraband you left in plain sight, it is probably not an infringement. You might need to establish that rolling down the window was not within...Read more »
I recently got a new car, due to financial restraints I haven’t been able to take care of getting it insured. I got pulled over for the license plate lights being out and by the end of it I was given a warning for the license plate light being out but I was given a citation for not having insurance
So I found out that someone got a license in my name and received tickets and other violations, I went to court to deal with this however the judge was ..well difficult. she told me I need to prove that it was not me driving at that time. These tickets go back to 1995. How am I suppose to prove I... Read more »
We're not allowed on this site to give you specific advice on how to win a case yourself. However what I can tell you is that this is the reason why people hire lawyers to try to win the case for them when they don't know how to do it themselves.
An Idaho attorney would know this best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, you could check the signage. As a GENERAL matter, bus lanes sometimes have times during which the restrictions to regular vehicles apply. Good luck
I was walking downtown to get food with my friends a few hours after Minneapolis sent out an amber alert (on iPhones) warning people that there was a curfew set. Curfew was set at 9:00 pm and we were downtown around 1:00 am. I was not in Minneapolis at the time the amber alert was sent, so I did... Read more »
In a green light crossroads, the front car suddenly stopped in the middle of the crossroad. I noticed the stop and used hard brake but failed to make a full stop due to the raining and wet road and lightly hit the back of the front car. The front car driver moved the car out of the scene...

I have been trying to get something in writting stating that info but with no luck. Today I went to the D.A office and they gave me... Read more »
Having a little problem with your post since all the violations you list have to do with registration or driver's licenses. These are not what you get booked for, it is just a personal appearance citation, and usually these are fix it tickets. When you go to court you should have your...Read more »
FYI, the lot is never full and no signs about will be towed etc. Everything I owned is in there. I am homeless and literally left with my purse, now the only possession I have. Nothing will be released until fees paid. What can I do?
The judgment that suspended you may expire after 10 (or it can be renewed). But even if it expires, the license remains suspended until reinstated. It's possible that you are eligible to reinstate, but of course there can be multiple reasons that a license is suspended; while one expires,...Read more »
The court printout of ticket has incorrect address, incorrect DL# and wrong court date. LEO states radar tracked me at 45 in a 30 going there opposite direction. Is there a chance that I can get this dismissed?
Check with Court Clerk about the exact Court Date. Go to Court and be respectful about telling either the Prosecutor or the Judge about the incorrect Citation. Hopefully you will receive a Diversion or a Dismissal.
Remember you are only allowed 11 points on your MVR for the last year,...Read more »
As long as you did not hold/touch your not guilty of the offense of using your cell phone. If you did touch it then it gets tricky. That being said if you only got a seat belt ticket instead, just pay it not worth fighting a ticket under $200.00 for most people.
