Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am so sorry to hear about what you went through. Can you clarify what your question is? Just to be clear, you did not have your seatbelt on when they stopped you?
Thank you for the additional information and I am sorry to hear about what your experienced. A warning is at the discretion of the police officer. If this was your first time being stopped for this infraction, the nice thing would have been to provide you and given you a warning. However, it is not required. Now, you do have a legal right to right this and can take the case to trial, if you want. If you do and the Officer fails to appear, the case will be dismissed. If he does appear, it may be hard to prevail, since you will be under oath and should not lie about having your seatbelt on.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
