The best next step is to hire a local traffic attorney and not go to court and try and handle this yourself. Look at it this way, if you aren't a mechanic would you ever think to just go and crack into your car's transmission and try and rebuild that bad boy? It's the same for legal work - you...Read more »
If one was 91/65 and the other was 74/45 - then they aren't the same now are they? And since you have two citations, it is pretty obvious you not only can be but were in fact charged with both and if you keep driving the way these offices have alleged you were driving, you are going to get more...Read more »
As long as you can be identified in some way, yes the ticket is likely valid and any incorrect information can simply be amended by the ADA. However, ff everything is wrong including the name and license number, you may be able to just ignore the ticket. You will know if you have been identified...Read more »
16 year old bounced check warrant in NC. I live in another state right now. I just found out about the warrant. I hired a lawyer. He now has a court date for me. Being i now have a court date, does that nullify the warrant til court date? Also isnt there a statute of limitations on this. All also... Read more »
If you have already hired an attorney, the logical thing for you to do would be to call the attorney you hired. Asking questions on a public forum like this kinda defeats the purpose of having hired an attorney. As to whether the warrant is still active - sometimes they are stricken prior to the...Read more »
Cabarrus County’s DA’s Office doesn’t accept driving school for reductions or dismissals. The available option in Cabarrus County is a reduction, either to a lesser speed, or to a non-moving violation such as Improper Equipment, all of which depends on your prior driving history. Contact a...Read more »
I was traveling 60 in a 45mph zone (thought it was posted as a 55) my dilemma is I haven't settled on an attorney in which I want to hire, mostly financial reasons at the moment. I was curious to see how I should address my need to the da or judge. Thank you
There are likely plenty of local attorneys who would have worked with you regarding payment. If the address on your ticket is correct, I am sure you received a crap ton of letters from them so you shouldn't have even had to leave you house to shop around. So this smells like procrastination to me...Read more »
The second cop who stopped me ran it through the system and said it wasn't suspended and doesn't know why the first cop gave me a ticket, but said I still have to go to court. I don't know what to do. I dont think I should have to pay the ticket because the officer lied and said it was suspended... Read more »
Let's just get things nice and sparkling clear. Because you very clearly have a few wrong ideas here. First, you weren't stopped for a suspended license - you were likely stopped for something else and then the issue of a potential suspend license came up. Second, the charge you mentioned is a...Read more »
Yellow lights and I could not see if the stop sign was out it was dark I went past them and looked in my rear view and the lights were still yellow the car behind me stopped. Should I be worried about a ticket or points?
Depends on what you mean by "on a 2 lane with a turn lane'. If you mean there were two lanes in your direction of travel, a turn lane in the middle and two lanes in the other direction of travel with the school bus stopped in the opposite direction of travel - then you have no obligation to stop...Read more »
I was pulled over for speeding 64 in a 45. I explained my situation and the officer understood. He gave me a warning. However, my license was recently expired as I just turned 21 in late December and did not realize that they expired so soon after. He wrote me a ticket for “Operate a Motor... Read more »
classes. Turns out it is an NC ticket from 20 years ago. The name on the ticket is spelled wrong and he never lived at the address shown on the ticket. They want $414. He is unsure but thinks he got a ticket which was paid however we have no info from 20 years ago. Is there any way to get this... Read more »
If you don't transfer title within 28 days after sale of vehicle, NC G.S. 20-73 seems to indicate you are guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor. Does that mean if I go to the DMV and transfer the title now (including paying the DMV's late penalty fee) that I will have a class 2 misdemeanor on my record?... Read more »
No, you do not just 'magically' get a class 2 misdemeanor tacked onto your record. You'd have to be formally charged and then convicted and most DA's aren't interested in prosecuting someone who didn't realize they need to do a title transfer. If you go take care of your business the way you...Read more »
why is there such a mystery surrounding speeding tickets in NC? I don't understand why they cannot be addressed. My daughter opted to go to court on the date shown on the citation as she felt she was innocent of speeding. The first time she went there was no judge so they continued. Same thing... Read more »
You how when you car is making a grinding sound and you are not a mechanic you go see a mechanic? Well the same holds true for legal work. When you have a court issue and you aren't an attorney - you don't try to crack into it and represent yourself - you hire a traffic attorney. Had she done...Read more »
Your question doesn't make sense. You do not get probation for pending matters. Do you mean a probation violation? If so, you really shouldn't get violated merely for being charged. Regardless, if you have a pending DWI - you need an attorney. So shop around for a DWI attorney in the county...Read more »
I got pulled over for my 3rd speeding ticket , he gave me a ticket which had no payment on it and a court date but I got a paper in the mail saying a different date and that it was a hearing do I attend both court cases ?
If you are smart you won't attend any hearings, you will hire the cheapest local traffic attorney you can find. That and of course stop speeding. However, if the clerk's office sent you a notice of a new court date typically you would just attend the updated court date not the court date on the...Read more »
I'm not sure what you mean by 'remove traffic violations'. If you mean have then removed from your record - no. If you mean take care of them your self - no, at least likely not without being arrested if there is an outstanding warrant. Just bite the bullet and hire the cheapest traffic...Read more »
I got a speeding ticket going “70”mph in a 55mph zone and all the personal information is my mother’s, including DL number, age, birthday, social security number, etc despite him having MY license. It says my mother is the one being charged and that she would need to appear in court, when I... Read more »
TN can not make you pay the VA tickets but TN can keep you suspended from driving in their state (and other states if you have a TN license) until you do. This is regardless of whether you can be reinstated anywhere else. You should just man up, be responsible and pay what you own instead of...Read more »
