No. As long as he can ID you as the driver that is enough. That being said, he cut you a break by citing you with a zero point non-moving violation. My advice would be to just pay it since he cut you a break. Good luck!
I received a ticket for running a red light. It was on a two way one lane street. There was three lights for the one lane street two were green one was red. I looked for on coming traffic, it was clear and I turned left. As soon as I got through the light a cop flipped his lights on and told me I... Read more »
In Pennsylvania you are allowed to make a left-hand turn on red if you are on a one-way street and you are turning left onto another one way street. That doesn’t mean however that you should plead guilty because you will get three points if you are convicted. You should follow the instructions on...Read more »
1 of 2 vehicles, didn't know each other. Asked where I was going, where I was coming from, what I did. Took 10 mins or less. He said to be safe and slow down. Both vehicles let go at same time. It was the sheriff, 1 back up officer.
You need to follow the instructions on the ticket and plead not guilty as you are facing 5 points plus a likely license suspension if you are convicted of that speed. The wrong color could possibly be a defense, but you may be better off trying to save your license. An experienced traffic attorney...Read more »

I got pulled over 2 days ago for speeding through a school zone. The officer told me I was going 29 in a 15mph zone. I never got a ticket before. My dad told me I could lose my license, is that true? What should I do?
You will not lose your license, unless this is a 2nd offense. It will be 3 points added to your license which could affect your insurance rates. Plead not guilty and get a lawyer, as your chances to get zero points will be better with a lawyer. Also, depending on the county, some judges will let...Read more »
PO cited me for doing 60 on a 50. in the notes is where the PO put "75/55 approaching an active work zone. PA traffic law 3368 section (c)(4) states "no person shall be convicted upon evidence obtained through the use of devices unless speed recorded is 6 or more mph"
First you need to check with GA DOT to see if out of state tickets transfer as this offense is 3 points plus and automatic suspension for going over 11mph over in a work zone. Get a local traffic lawyer - many judge will let your lawyer go to court for you to try to change the ticket to one with...Read more »
You should definitely plead not guilty and go to court as any moving violation in Pennsylvania, and even some non-moving violations like 3111 A do transfer as points to New Jersey. Even though 3111a is considered a non-moving violation in Pennsylvania, New Jersey considers this a moving violation...Read more »
you may want to restate this. You were driving with or without a cdl? If it's just that you didn't have it on you, frequently if you give them proof they will drop the charge or give you some alternate charge. However they don't have to do that.
Received a speeding ticket for allegedly going 42 mph in a 25 mph zone. Cop "cut me a break" and dropped my speed to a 30 in a 25, still got slapped with a $150 ticket. Brought the ticket home and after discussing the topic with others, I decided I'd take it to court, but I... Read more »
These are tough to fight and given the difference in speed not sure a Judge wouldn't find that it's beyond the normal margin of error for any speed timing device (4-8 mph). Contact an attorney who handles tickets before that DJ to see what it would cost and chances of winning.
Driving down road on motorcycle, get cut off by passerby, words exchanged, I cut back in front of him and break as he was on my tail. Officer comes over explains that the gentleman who ctmut me off recorded whole ordeal without audio and officer says he could cite me for many things but will only... Read more »
The tape is evidence --consider a porch pirate whose actions are caught on camera. Doesn't mean they can't be charged. I'd take the eyewear ticket. Or you can fight a long protracted fight and maybe face a points violation.
