Each misdemeanor carries a penalty of 6 months jail time or $1000 fine (plus penalty assessments usually tripling the fine). You need to hire an attorney. Patricia Wagner in Orange County can probably refer you to someone in the Bay area to handle this case. Having these misdemeanors on your...Read more »

I'm high risk (and disabled) and have been stuck in my home with limited income when my car tags go late. Im not driving it as it sits on street in front of my home. Hearing about the mandate to not tow while dmv is closed I let it float to the back of my mind until I hear a city of Menifee... Read more »
Sorry to hear about this, very frustrating I know, I had a similar experience when I was younger. You need an attorney that specializes in Government Claims- usually a personal injury attorney can assist you. The problem is that your case is not worth enough for an attorney to get involved, the...Read more »
Depending on what happens in Court, your driving record is permanent and lasts forever. Offenses as a minor remain when you reach 18 and can be used for enhancement of fines as second or multiple offenses. The point count tickets also remain.
I had my license suspended unfortunately due to not paying a ticket on time. I finally got the funds and paid the ticket and today I got a letter saying the bail was forfeited and a bunch of other stuff I don’t understand. What does that mean? Do I need to do anything else? Also, would my next... Read more »
You probably need to go to Court to make sure that the Court tells the DMV that you have taken care of your financial obligations, completely. Then the DMV will release the suspension on your license. When you sent in the money you were posting bail, it was forfeited when you did not report for...Read more »
IMO the only defense that MIGHT get you off a speeding ticket is if you were in fear of death for yourself or your passenger. Such as you had a pregnant woman giving birth and you were racing to the hospital; or you were being chased by a youth gang who were shooting at the car and you showed the...Read more »
It depends on what kind of ticket you received. First, this is best posted in Utah, since Utah rules apply, not California. It depends on what kind of a ticket you received, some tickets require you to show up, like over 100 mph, or involved in an accident, and there are plenty of roads in Utah on...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 was written a ticket for 3 violations. 4000(a) 12500(a) 4462(b) on July 22nd. My court date on the ticket is sept. 8th. I showed up but they had no complaint filed. 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 »
If you were issued an infraction or misdemeanor for driving on a suspended license and do not show up for the court date, the court will issue a warrant. It will probably be immediate, but there could be a slight processing delay (especially with Covid). The best solution is to go to that...Read more »
I payed a fine back in 05/08/2015 and all my fines from fort smith to oklahoma being very thorough asking questions and making sure I had nothing pending . Not only that I had a hold on my licenses so all fines and fees had to payed before I could even pay a reinstatement fee .
1. Take care of all outstanding tickets, FTA, FTP to clear your record and get license reinstated. 2. Check to see if any issuing states have an amnesty program for these old tickets. 3. Not likely you will find an attorney to sue a police dept. over outstanding traffic tickets, not enough money...Read more »
An officer wrote TBD on my speeding ticket (I was told this means "to be determined") then proceeded to write in the incorrect adress. Do I have to call them every month to check and see if the ticket went through? Can they put a warrant out for my arrest if I dont?
You can, but there could be consequences. Welcome to Traffic Enforcement in the Justice System. If your ticket is scheduled for arraignment and you don't show: 1. you will be assessed a Civil assessment of $300.00 for the FTA; and 2. your license could be suspended. If you are stopped for...Read more »
Hi recently received a speeding ticket in ca I was going 85 in a 55 zone. This is my first ticket ever and I have to go to court for it. My question is does the judge decide how many points go on my record or will he allow them to be removed by going to traffic school? I read online because how... Read more »
The red lights in the rear view mirror are one of life's worst moments. Speeding through a construction zone on the fwy, I would estimate. The DMV decides about points. It is possible you could do Traffic School and get this off your DMV record, and INSURANCE record- will most likely...Read more »
