I was pulled over for speeding by a chp officer. However, I was not speeding. I was really surprised when the officer told me I was speeding. I think the officer noticed. Because he then went on saying that he was actually not even paying attention to me. That he was focused on a different car that got away. He still gave me a sperfing ticket. What can I do?

I am a resident of Georgia, and I have a court date for a

Hello. I am a resident of Georgia, and I have a court date for a traffic ticket in mid-January that I received after an accident. The ticket I received from the officers on site of the accident stated "failure to yield - left turn." However, when I checked the citation online, the offense is listed as "6X - FAILED TO YIELD RIGHT OF WAY TURNING/ACCIDNETTURNING/ACCIDENT." No one was injured in the accident, but both vehicles were deemed as totaled by insurance. There was not a DUI or any other aggravating charge for this accident. My question is this: should I plead NOLO for this offense? I have never used this before. Also, if I do plead NOLO, my understanding is that I will still be responsible for paying the fine, but points will not go onto my drivers license. I would like to make sure this is correct, and that I am able to plead NOLO in this case. I would also like to understand whether or not it matters if the points go onto my license as far as my car insurance premium is concerned...my insurance company obviously knows that I was involved in a wreck, and knows how much it cost them to handle. Therefore, won't my insurance automatically go up accordingly?

I was cited under cvc 22102 for making an illegal U turn. I illegally made a L turn across double row of spaced yellow markings like ........... blhalJA: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?Customer: Ca and I did not make a U turn as I pulled into a parking space which only allows a 140 degree turn due to how the parking spaces aremarked in a 25 to 30% angle. A U turn is a 180 degree turn by definition. They should have cited me for illegal left turn BUT They did not cite me for this.JA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: no i can write a declarationJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It appears to me I should have been cited under 21651(a) SO am I still guilty if they cited me for wrong violation?

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago,

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago, registered it, rendered it inoperable (had to repair the engine), and just got it working again a couple of days ago. Today, I was in a single vehicle accident where I also took out a large highway pole and sign. A state trooper showed up and recorded my insurance information; however, this vehicle is not yet on my insurance. I have insurance for my other car. What should I do? Should I contact my insurer? Should I be afraid of a "driving without insurance" ticket in my future? Ive read that there is usually a 2-week grace period to get a car insured. Is this long over for me since I purchased the car so long ago? My mechanic and some photos I have can prove the car was inoperable until a couple of days ago.
