Very good that you recognize that a lawyer can assist you. Please contact a traffic ticket or criminal defense lawyer in the Little Rock area---or contact a few lawyers----and then after speaking with them and hearing your options, hire the one with whom you feel most comfortable. While there are... Read more »

Not enough context is in the post, but the answer of whether or not you can is yes. But there's more to your situation than what you have stated in your post.

what's your question? If he showed up to court, he'll likely go in front of the judge for the hearing, despite being late.
The vehicle that cause the accident don’t stop at a red traffic light driving from north to south and I was driving from west to east. I was the injured part

A local attorney must advise you because different jurisdictions can apply different doctrines for apportioning liability when multiple parties are to blame. But your question remains open for three weeks. From a textbook standpoint, the infraction against you could result in liability on your... Read more »

Even if the officer violated laws that you’re complaining about it doesn’t help you in your criminal case.
Does that answer your question?

Yes, the ticket is still valid. It may go to credibility of the testifying officer but that omission, in itself, is not enough to make the ticket invalid.

Something is missing here but I would recommend that you contact a criminal defense lawyer or a few of them in the area where you are being prosecuted------discuss your matter with the lawyers and then hire the one with whom you are most comfortable. Good luck.
I’m put the plate from one vehicle that I own onto another vehicle that I own until I could get to the court house and get them transferred. I got stopped by a policeman and cited for fictitious tags.
answered on Dec 31, 2021
Yes, the police can ticket you for this even if you are the owner of both vehicles. In Arkansas, tags are assigned to only one vehicle unless they are dealer tags.
I've never had a charge. My record is squeaky clean.

It sounds like you may have some good facts to fight your case with. You should visit with a defense attorney to get an assessment of your case and possible defenses.

I assume that you were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. First, did the police have cause to stop you and to search your vehicle? Did you consent to a search? Was the unused needle in your vehicle for a legitimate reason? There are many facts that may determine the course that you take... Read more »
it was night time and an officer pulled me over because he said he couldn't see my license plate even though there was no obstruction and he was well over 50 ft away
answered on Nov 28, 2021
No, not if the light was working that illuminates the license plate.
And we didn't exchange insurance information. They pulled her car and mines
answered on Sep 10, 2021
An Arkansas attorney should advise here, but your post remains open for two weeks. At the very least, if you haven't already, you could consider a consult with a traffic ticket defense attorney.
There's a lot to sort out here - What was the citation for? Are there plausible... Read more »
I was running across the street to my motel, this car waved me to go across because it was clear, another car that happen to be texting and driving slammed on their brake to late and clashed with the car that waved me to go across, and due to property damage I have to go to court.

This sounds like something you should fight and if you do so, then you should hire a traffic ticket attorney to represent him and wade through this. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and search for criminal defense or traffic ticket attorneys in your area-----some will provide a free initial... Read more »
Arrested for driving on a suspended private property sign was posted they pushed the vehicle onto the public road out of my yard to load
answered on Jun 1, 2021
I'm not getting why your vehicle was towed. And from private property. Here's the problem--you can go after the person responsible, but in the meantime your car is sitting racking up storage rates at a lot of dollars per day. I suggest you need to talk to the tow people, be very polite,... Read more »
I drive a XLS and they put UTS, is that enough to fight the ticket! My vin number and license number are correct?
answered on May 9, 2020
No, not just because the model is wrong. There may be other ways to attack the ticket, but that isn't going to make or break it.
The cops showed up because a buddy who wasn’t there has a crazy girlfriend, and she showed up looking for him and then called the cops and told them a lie about somebody who was really drunk and left the house. Nobody was really drunk but a few people had a couple drinks at my house.
answered on Mar 28, 2020
Thank you for reaching out. The citation is a class A Misdemeanor in Arkansas. This is up to one year in the county jail and up to $2500 fine if you plead guilty or are found guilty by a Judge. The charge may stay on your record forever. You can seal this record though. Depending on which court... Read more »

Maybe, maybe not. There are several issues the attorney would have to evaluate, some may not be apparent until discovery is reviewed. What Arkansas county were you in and what court is listed on the ticket?
I use it so people can't say they didn't see me when they hit my car. I've seen others use similar light too while driving. Why did I get a ticket for Hazzard light use .
answered on Jan 2, 2020
It is running all the time becasue you want people to always see it?
If so, it sounds like a violation of 27-36-208(c). You aren't an authorized emergency vehicle, only using it as a turn signal and "just driving" is not an unusual traffic hazard.
27-36-208(c)... Read more »
