Q: I was pulled over with multiple other vehicles by one trooper and ticketed for going 75 in a 65, but I wasn't speeding.

I have contested this ticket and the court has sent me the video of the incident. It does not show how fast anybody is going and in the audio the trooper is heard saying that everyone was speeding and we were traveling in a pack, which is false. In the video you see the trooper pull over a truck... Read more »

It is sufficient if the judge believes that the trooper’s word constitutes truth beyond a reasonable doubt. The trooper could certainly consider evidence that you were driving as fast as the truck if he clocked the trucker and the other vehicles were right behind it.

You should consider speaking with a local criminal/traffic attorney who will be able to best argue your position. If you simply pay the ticket it will add a minimum of 4 points to your record and could raise your insurance rates.

Randy Bryan Ligh
Randy Bryan Ligh answered on Apr 12, 2021

It depends on the employers policies and procedures, and hopefully, it is contained within a written policy and procedure manual. Of course, the employee should have the right to dispute this with his employer and with the court should the employee desire to do so.

Depending on where your tickets are filed it may be cheaper to have an attorney see about setting aside the judgments and working out agreements that will not impact your license and insurance as much if you just pay the tickets.

Ben Corcoran
Ben Corcoran answered on Apr 7, 2021

You may get a ticket for driving the vehicle in its current condition, but if you fix it and show the court proof of the fix the ticket would be dismissed.

What is more likely to happen is that once it comes time for your annual inspection you will have to get it fixed.

Hire a competent attorney to represent you. Just pleading guilty is usually not a good choice because of MVR points, and you might have had a better result. You will not be able to do this on your own.

If the Clerk sends the conviction to the State DOS, then it will affect your License. Hire a competent attorney to represent you on this Citation. At worst it will be a Conviction, or it might not go on your MVR. Never just plead guilty and send the Court a Check.

The ticket will not impact your record until after court.

When you initially get a license you have a 0 point balance. You get positive points for every year you have a license. Your +3 could be because you haven't had a license long enough to get 5 positive points.
