It is definitely not too late to hire a lawyer, but what they can do at this point might be limited.
Depending on the court, it may still be possible to get them withdrawn from collections, and back on a calendar in front of a judge to fight them. This is actually fairly common, but every...Read more »
Why was your license suspended? Why did you not know about it? Have you kept your address up to date with the DMV? Have you paid all necessary license and registration fees on time? Did the state contact you or try to do so re: your suspended license? And why were you driving without a permit? More...Read more »
Different courts handle them differently. I have seen everything from $0 fine to over $900 in fines. If you can get relicensed, most courts will cut you a big break, maybe amend to a non criminal infraction or something similar to that.
You should call the court and ask their warrant quash...Read more »
If you went to the courthouse and paid the ticket, there is no reason anything would ever be sent to your house by the court. However, DOL will likely mail you a warning letter for having an infraction appear on your record.
Plus, your intermediate license will get revoked if you get two...Read more »
If you were 18 at the time, then the only restriction that results from that should be payment of fines. They probably went to collections, so you would have to contact the court and find out how to pay them. Once the fines are taken care of, you are probably clear to apply for a license....Read more »
I was pulled over for speeding on the freeway (about 15 over) and I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop. He asked for my license and went back to his bike, but never gave me a warning or a ticket. He just said "that's all I needed" and left? What does that mean? Am I going to receive a ticket in... Read more »
Sure you can fight it. School zone tickets are obviously expensive, as are violations for no license. It makes a huge difference if you just left your license at home, as opposed to not having a license.
You should really talk to a lawyer who practices in this area of the law in the county...Read more »
She will have to contest the ticket. In most jurisdictions, she can sign an affidavit that she was not the driver and the ticket will be dismissed. Check the court's website, she may even be able to do that by mail without making a personal appearance. If you have questions, call the court clerk...Read more »
I read 2018 officers pocket manual and on pg 2-22 it states- "once you have made a legal stop of a vehicle for a traffic offense, you automatically have the authority to order the occupants to stay inside or to exit the vehicle"
Some judges will dismiss if you show the registration. I would probably call the clerk's office at the court where the ticket is filed, and ask them what is common in that particular court. If it is a court that has a prosecutor in it, you can also call their office and ask what your options are....Read more »
It can be, if the officer has cause to believe she observed a crime being committed. Most often happens if the officer knows the driver and observes the driving; she can check the driver's license status from her car, and if the driver is suspended or revoked then sure, they can make that arrest....Read more »
No one from the court system will intentionally contact her, if that's what you mean.
If you pay the ticket (by going to the courthouse and paying in person), that's the end of the court case. It will appear on your driver's record though, so if you are on her insurance she might find out...Read more »
If your at fault for a minor accident with no insurance and no license and only phone numbers were exchanged at the time of the accident what kind of legal action can be taken against You? The other party is saying there is alot of damage now what should I do?
Pay the damage and get a full release of all claims. You could foul things up by not having insurance or a license in which case it's unlikely--but possible--your car could be impounded if you insist on driving it.

On ticket he wrote wrong year of the car also in his official statement. Can it be dropped for that reason. It's a jury trial officer is... Read more »
Why on earth are you doing a jury trial pro se? No, the errors on the citation aren't going to get you a dismissal. No, you do not NEED to subpoena the officer, unless you really want him to be there. I can't imagine the city can put on their case without him, so they will subpoena him.
Person was arrested yesterday and has 3 warrants for unpaid traffic tickets. Curious how long they may have to serve in jail. They also had their license suspended years ago so they were originally arrested for driving without a license.
