No, you should not have points placed on your license. Not sure about insurance but I do not think so..

Here is the text of the statute you cited

Justia US Law US Codes and Statutes New Jersey Revised Statutes 2016 New Jersey Revised Statutes Title 39 - Motor Vehicles And Traffic Regulation Section 39:4-56.6 - Abandonment Of Vehicle On Private Property; Removal By Owner Of Property; Costs; Sale Of Vehicle.

Q: 2C:52-11B(1) charges amended question

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Traffic Tickets for New Jersey on
Answered on Nov 18, 2017

What you did and what you have been convicted of are two different questions and yes you may have shoplifted but the law will look at it as a conviction for loitering. That being said with an expungment the general public will not see anything from the date of the expungment except what may be online in public postings on the internet, newspapers, private databases etc.

Q: My name was spelled wrong on a citation for misdemeanor possession. Is that grounds for license to dismiss?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for Virginia on
Answered on Nov 18, 2017

No, in Virginia the courts call that harmless error and do not dismiss the Summons. The Judge will correct the mistake and move forward with the case. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to review the case and analyze the facts to discover any technical defenses to the offense. It is a misdemeanor that carries the potential for loss of license, jail time and fines.

Q: How to fight a speeding ticket from pacing?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for California on
Answered on Nov 18, 2017

selective stops are challenging.........though others were breaking the law, that does not excuse you.

if speed limit is 65 and you admit to 76 you technically are guilty.

is the court you have to appear at one that is close over in the middle of nowhere.

i have sat as a judge pro tem for traffic and i might dismiss under the circumstances....................however

every bench officer brings their own beliefs to the bench.

there is always a good chance...

Q: I got a warning ticket but it shows I still have a hearing date, do I have to go to it?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for Michigan on
Answered on Nov 17, 2017

If the ticket is clearly marked as a warning, and there are no other charges on the ticket, then no, you don't have to go to court, and the "appear on or before" date was just pre-printed on the ticket. BUT, if it is a charge for Impeding, and the box marked C/I, beside where it says Impeding is marked, then yes, you do have to go to court, or pay it online, by that date. It sounds like the officer gave you a break , but not a complete pass on the speeding violation. Sincerely, Frank B. Ford

Q: If I got pulled over for a speeding ticket. And I’m 18 will my mom find out?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for Washington on
Answered on Nov 16, 2017

No one from the court system will intentionally contact her, if that's what you mean.

If you pay the ticket (by going to the courthouse and paying in person), that's the end of the court case. It will appear on your driver's record though, so if you are on her insurance she might find out through them. If you pay by internet or mail, they might mail you some kind of receipt.

If you contest (or mitigate) the ticket, then they will send you notice in the mail of a court date. So...

Q: If I did my community service, paid my fine, and went to traffic school, do i still need to go to court afterwards?

Answered on Nov 16, 2017

That really depends on the court system. Where I practice primarily if the person has completed everything they do not have to appear on the compliance review date. In other counties they do. I would call the courthouse (circuit clerk or State's Attorney)

Q: Who has right of way in intersection?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for North Carolina on
Answered on Nov 15, 2017

Typically who ever gets to their respective stop sign first has the right of way. However, in the scenario you describe, right of way is likely moot because if the two cars execute their indicated turns properly there should be no contact even if the cars start at the same time.

Q: Got about 6 tickets for riding illegal dirtbike on street. Mailed them in and got 4 fines and 2 appearances?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for New York on
Answered on Nov 15, 2017

If they can argue that the off road vehicle was a motor vehicle as defined by statute, and you were suspended, the charge could be the crime of aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor. It would be improper for the court to accept that charge by mail from an unrepresented defendant, but more importantly, you wouldn't want to plead guilty either.

The insurance violation caries a one year revocation of your driver's license and over $2000 in fines. Did you want to plead guilty to...

Q: who has right of way when there are two lanes turning left onto a freeway on ramp with green arrows

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for Arizona on
Answered on Nov 15, 2017

A lot depends on who is where at what time. They shouldn't have two streams of traffic headed for the same area without a yields sign. With no sign see if your state has a law as to who yields to whom at an unsigned intersection. Suggest you ask your AAA office if they have a traffic safety person you can ask. Or ask the staties.

Q: I had a car accident, I got a ticket and I have a court date.What can I do in order to not get the bad points?

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents and Traffic Tickets for Michigan on
Answered on Nov 15, 2017

Not knowing what it was for, hard to say. For starters be neat in appearance. Slacks, collared shirt, haircut if a man, no facial jewlery, no major tats showing, no hoodie saying "yes sir " and "yes m'am" are good starts.

Why not consult someone who handles tickets in that county?
