I got a ticket for being on my cell phone while driving

I got a ticket for being on my cell phone while driving (although I was actually not moving and in a line of cars; CHP issued the ticket). I know it is a violation and I paid the bail already. Is it a violation that will raise my insurance rates if I do not go to traffic school to remove it? The internet info is confusing on this point. I will go to traffic school if it will erase the violation and/or points, or whatever it is that impacts my insurance rate, but is this ticket one that falls in that category? Thanks.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I don't plan to fight the ticket. I did it. I already paid the fine. The question is traffic school.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not that I know of. Is this a free inquiry?JA: The Traffic Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.Customer: OK. I won't take your time. I am a lawyer, but I know zip about traffic citations. I thought this might be free. Thanks.

TEXAS TRAFFIC ATTORNEY PLEASE! This past Saturday my husband

TEXAS TRAFFIC ATTORNEY PLEASE!This past Saturday my husband was stopped by an officer for allegedly not stopping at a stop sign. When he was asked for his insurance, my husband did not have his insurance card with him at the time. When the officer checked his system he said that it showed that my husband didn't have insurance on his vehicle. I know that my husband's car is insured because we pay the insurance in full until December and I actually confirmed this with my insurance company today.I just looked at the ticket that my husband was given from the officer, and I noticed that the information about the vehicle is totally a different vehicle description from the one my husband was driving. The model number, make, the VIN number,except by the color black dont correspond at all to my husband truck.Can this ticket be dismissed for this mistake from the officer. Now, I understand why it showed no insurance. Officer run wrong license plate.

I had some old traffic tickets and a misdemeanor that was

I had some old traffic tickets and a misdemeanor that was dismissed (thrown out). I'd like to have them removed from my municipal court record. The dates range from 1998 to 2010 and there are six items. I'd like to write the motion myself vs hiring an attorney to do it. I also have a hyatt legal plan through my employer, but I think there is a discounted fee. There is a form on the website. However I am currently on probation for an OVI in another court (same state) would the old charges be sealed or do I have to wait for my probation to end to submit my form. see form attached in a minute.
