My son got a speeding ticket on the GW Parkway going 65 in a 40mph zone. The ticket says Speeding and the charge is CFR 36 4.21(c). My son's driving record is clean. Should I ask the US Attorney to reduce the ticket or should I just pay the fine? As we live in VA, I am wondering what the consequences of paying the fine would be. Thanks.

The police take you to the hospital because they believe you

the police take you to the hospital because they believe you are suicidal but not , does this constitute involuntary commitment to a mental institution and being adjudicated as mentally defective? The reason I have a worry is because I want to be able to purchase a shotgun in the future forclayshooting. Question 11f on form 4473 states "Have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective (which includes a determintation by a court, board, or commission or another lawful authority that you are a danger to yourself or others or having been adjudicated incompetent to manage your ownaffairs) or have you ever been committed to a mental institution?" Can I mark "no" on this question in good conscience in order avoid not lying on this form. The wording of the question in 11f on the form 4473 to purchase a gun. I am worrying if this question applies to me if the cops have taken me to the hospital because they deemed me a danger to myself when all I said out of figure of speech is sometimes "I want to shoot myself" my job called the cops to come get me. Am I classified as a "adjuducated as mental defective" and was I committed to a mental institution? Was I involuntarily committed? I never saw a judge and did not have due process. I stayed for mental evaluation for less than 24 hours and was deemed not a danger to myself and others. Please help me.

I am a 19 year old university male student. Never received a ticket before or any kind of trouble. This weekend I went to a party where the police showed up and gave mostly everyone a mip citation. I want to seek legal advice because I've never been in this situation before and want to know what I am supposed to do.
