It's not as simple as walking into to court with pictures or even video tape showing that the intersection did not have a sign posted that it was illegal to make a right turn on a red light. You don't know it that was the only reason the cop pulled you over. If evidence was seized...Read more »
We were pulled over for turning right after stopping at a red light. The cop said there was a sign stating 'no right turn on red' but I went back to the intersection and thoroughly looked for a sign stating that and there was none. Doesn't that make it an illegal stop and thus any... Read more »

The car I made contact with was the police chiefs kid at school. I didn't think I did any damage police report shows some paint bubbling and a scratch. It seemed really outrageous that they would press charges since I offered to pay for the damage and apologized profusely when I was... Read more »
you need an attorney to deal with criminal charges. He can also help negotiate payment for the damage. You don't talk about your insurance, I assume you have none, could be a ticket in that for you as well, currently $900+ if no insurance, get some right away before the charges land, you...Read more »
I am receiving notices of violation from a patrol company for "monitored for stored." My HOA requires vehicles be moved at least every 30 days. I need to be able to prove I do move my vehicle about 2-3 times per week. Any advice on a method that would stand up in court if I am towed in error?
In Los Angeles, is it legal for someone to occupy more than one parking space, or to block other parking spaces with their vehicle, when parallel parking on a residential street? I'm inquiring because a resident on the block where I live routinely parks his three cars on the street spaced so... Read more »
I got stopped and told I was getting a ticket for turning right on a red light stop. Officer said it was illegal to turn right on a red light. I’m not sure what the actual ticket is for or how to go about it..
Officer stated he observed that I had my head down and was using my cell phone.
Cell provider records show no calls or texts were made immediately, before I was pulled over. I present this record of evidence that the ticket was issued in error and should be dismissed. (See Exh 1a &... Read more »
Yes, falsely representing yourself as another individual to attend traffic school for them is a CRIME. Do not do it or have it done for you. The penalty will be much worse than the ticket, you could go to jail.
It was the officers second day on the job. I believe he wrote the wrong code. Only problem with this is that to show I wasn't in possession of cocaine, I can only think of telling them what was in my possession allegedly. How do I have the technicality thrown out without incriminating myelf... Read more »
the best advice is to consult with a local criminal lawyer and share ALL the info in private...............cases are not dismissed that easily...........one often has to make motions to force the court and DA to follow the law and even then, both sides can appeal....Read more »
The alleged unlicensed operator has to be shown to have been driving the vehicle. The showing can be made by direct evidence - the driver was seen operating the vehicle - or circumstantial evidence - vehicle was found in a location where only the unlicensed occupant could have taken it.
I am going to ask the judge if he or she can cancel my warrant and I missed court because I was taking care of my grandpa 10 hours from were I live and I already paid a small amount toward my fine. Do you have any recommendations or tips you can give me?
Officer said speakers in my back seat “looked like boat speakers” and demanded I return them to an obviously abandoned boat outside in the desert across from pick-a-part. When I took them from my car he proceeded to search my car, including closed containers/my purse which obviously did not... Read more »
Whether the LEO (Law Enforcement Officer's) actions constituted a unlawful warrantless search of your vehicle and your purse, was anything incriminating found? Were criminal charges filed against you? If not, what do you hope to gain by asking a rhetorical question?
Chemotherapy makes me really sick and really tired. I'm in a lot of pain due to ovarian, colon, peritoneum, breast cancer and a colostomy that is prolapsing so I park my car right outside my house to avoid walking. There is a no parking sign from 7am to 6pm and sometimes i won't wake up... Read more »
If you bring proof of your condition to Court and have a sympathetic prosecutor, then he has the discetion to dismiss your ticket and may do so this time, however, you are committing parking infractions and if you continue to do so, he may become less sympathetic. Sorry.
Involved in a single car accident, nobody was hurt. i admitted to the officer that i had a drink that night. he gave me a field sobriety test and i passed, he said “i’m not being arrested for DUI” i got a infraction for an unsafe lane change. the officer didn’t do any blood work or... Read more »
If there's no chemical test it's very difficult to prosecute you for DUI, especially if you passed the FST's. If you want to fight the infraction, have at, it would be difficult for anything to be added to the case.
