state is wrong and my address state is wrong. I was doing 72 in a 65 with another car right next to me. The officer clocked that car first at 70 and choose to pull me over. On the ticket he put down 72 in a 55 which is false. When I pulled over it was in front of a speed limit sign stating 65. What... Read more »
The likely hood of a dismissal is so close to zero as to be virtually indistinguishable - especially if you try and handle it yourself and roll up into to Court saying all the incredibly irrelevant things you did in your question. Just hire the cheapest traffic attorney you can find and oh yeah,...Read more »
You? Likely, no. At least not properly. A traffic attorney - likely yes. If the address on your ticket is correct, you will be getting a crap ton of letters from traffic attorneys. You do not need F. Lee Bailey for a traffic ticket so just pick the cheapest one and roll with that. Oh, and...Read more »
If you aren't a mechanic and the transmission in your car goes out - you hire a mechanic. Likewise, if you aren't an attorney and you get a traffic ticket (especially one 22 over) - you hire a traffic attorney. If the address on your ticket is correct, you will be getting a crap ton of letters...Read more »
I recently found out that a ticket I received in December 2018 which was dismissed by the district attorney still shows up on my driving record. It does say it was dismissed, however I would rather not have it on my record at all. Is there a way to get it removed?
Of course not. It will remain a permanent part of your driving record. It is of course possible it could get removed due to some clerical error or other type of glitch but likely not due to your request unless you are powerful enough or have connections that are powerful enough but if you did,...Read more »
Can it be dismissed - sure, but the real question is whether it is likely to be dismissed and the answer to that is - no. The DA has the authority to amend and correct errors on the citation and they will likely do so especially for a simple administrative error such as an incorrect address. As...Read more »
Received tint ticket in NC. I have no interest in pleading guilty, but nor will I remove it (tint tickets are money making scams, and I paid alot to put it on. I won't pay to take it off to just pay to put it back on a day later). But tint tickets are class 3 misdeamors here, and they've been... Read more »
So you are willing to potentially waste several days of your life and get humiliated in Court haggling over who had the better perspective you or a trained officer - all to avoid a simple red light ticket? This is good 'ol boy North Carolina - right off the bat, your odds of successfully beating...Read more »
It likely won't have a huge impact moving forward, BUT you should contact a lawyer in your area and schedule a consultation. It might be the best money you spend to make sure you handle it correctly and ease your anxiety over the issue.
Expired registration is a misdemeanor so yes, you can appeal if you do so timely. However, that would be an incredibly stupid thing to do. Your registration was either expired or it was not - so there's not much to appeal. If it was not expired or if you came into compliance most ADA's will...Read more »
The person rolling back is typically at fault. However, if they chose to lie and say you hit them, you will have a difficult time proving otherwise without dash cam or other video evidence or at least witness testimony. Years ago when auto insurance fraud was more prevalent, fraudsters would back...Read more »
What ever you do please do not go to court yourself and mention that you endangered other people going 24mph over the speed limit because you had to go to the bathroom - or you likely will really not like the outcome. Your best bet is to hire a traffic attorney. We can represent you there for a...Read more »
If you mean can you waste your time going to court yourself and requesting the wrong thing - sure knock yourself out. A better option would be to hire the cheapest traffic attorney you can find to likely have this reduced to Improper Equipment if the DA allows it.
The policemen tailed me for over a quarter of a mile with less than a car link between us. He then asks me for my license but not for my registration. This clearly depicted that he had run my tag prior to putting his lights on. He received my license and then asked if this was my vehicle. To me,... Read more »
Let me get this straight. You admit and knew you were speeding but felt entitled to a warning because, as you put it, you believe speeding 58/45 is being 'in total compliance'. You seem to think the things the officer did during stopping you were inappropriate - they weren't. And to top it all...Read more »
2 more cars ahead of me passed the school bus as well, it was very hard to see that school bus due to the dense fog. The police officer was giving another ticket to the second person and another police officer came (which he didn't see anything) and gave me the ticket. The ticket says the day was... Read more »
This is an extremely serious traffic offense - so just hire a local traffic attorney. However, if you do represent yourself, under no circumstances should you use or even mention that incredibly lame 'fog' excuse. Even on the very extreme outside chance that you are telling the truth and the fog...Read more »
Even if you were wearing your seat belt - which you likely were not, It isn't worth it to 'fight it' a seat belt ticket is one of several types of tickets it is often cheaper to hire a traffic attorney to take care of it for you than it is to pay the ticket off. It is $179 to pay off a seat belt...Read more »
