I got pulled over by an unmarked PA State Trooper (the ticket says he was in a marked vehicle). He verbally told me I was going 64 in a 55, then issued me a ticket for 60 in a 55 to "do me a favor" since I otherwise have a clean driving record. In the confidential info section, he tries...

Below, I've pasted a link to the NYS DMV page that outlines a number of different left turn scenarios. The resource covers left turns from one-way to one-way, one-way to two-way, two-way to two-way, two-way to one-way, and two-way to four-lane highway. I hope it helps. Good luck

This is my first time getting a ticket. Had two of my sons 16&17 up on the roof, told them to knock it off and when they were bout to go down, cops pulled us over. Should I fight for a trial or just plead guilty? If I do, will I lose my driving privileges?
The officer said that It would not effect my record but I haven't found anything online confirming that so if you can please help me and answer my question that would be great. If I get this on my record I am going to lose a scholarship I earned and although it is fully deserved I need to know... Read more »
