Hi.I am going into court today. I was pulled over for having a suspended license in the 3rd degree. This is my second time being charged with suspended in 3rd degree. I have taken all steps necessary to have my license reinstated. License was reinstated the day after my arraignment for this current charge. Court is today. I do not have a lawyer with me. I plan on entering a pole bargain, if that doesn't work then I will request a diversion program. What are my odds of success? I just want to pay my fines and go home. Are they going to try and throw me in jail? License was suspended due to an unpaid ticket from 2012 ( which is now paid in full).

This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the

This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the intersection at my community, there was a school bus coming from the opposite direction (from my right) at the stem of the intersection when I was about to make a right turn. I could have made a turn, but I didn't because I saw the kids along the road to my right. So I waited until the stop arm was extended, and the kids safely boarded the bus, but at the same time another bus pulled up behind the first bus. I proceeded to make a right turn after the stop arm of the first bus was retrieved and the driver starting driving. Now I am worried that I may be in violation because the second bus was right there. I do not know if the second bus had already flashed the red lights.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: That's it. I have not been cited, but I am just worried. I had never had experience stopping for a bus, so I didn';t do it intentionally. As I could not see the stop sign because I was at the intersection, I just didn't know I had to stop.

I was involved in a very minor fender bender last evening at about 6:30. I was stopped at a traffic light and the car in front of me backed up - I suppose because he was too far over the line. His bottom fender had two screw marks from my license plate holder. Nothing else on his car and nothing on my car. We went to a gas station. Exchanged info. Took pictures etc. He called his insurance company and I left and went home. The police called me later and asked for a picture of my insurance card. I sent it to them. The officer called back and said that I had to come to the police department at 5 PM tonight. I am very uncomfortable doing that. Don't know why but my instinct tells me that I shouldn't do that. I looked at the GA motor vehicle code regarding reporting accidents and it said you only had to involve the police if there was more than $500 worth of damage.

I am a resident of GA and I rear-ended another car in St.

I am a resident of GA and I rear-ended another car in St. Louis, MO while driving a rental car on my company insurance. We were both standing on the red traffic signal, when my foot slipped off the break and my car barely touched the car in front. There were no visible damages to the two cars. The other party kept shouting and asking for my insurance. He said he called 911 but when no one arrived for 30 min, and he kept harassing me asking for my driver licence and insurance, I called 911 and cops arrived in 10 min. The cops looked at the two cars and said that there were no damages but the other person insisted on filing a report and said that he will take insurance claim. The cop clearly stated that he will mention in his report that there are no damages to either cars. I took multiple pictures of my car and the other party's car.A few days later, the other party left 2 voice mails asking for ~$350 in damages and his insurance company also called me but I did not reply to them. Later, I got an email from my rental company's claim representative and I gave her a statement of what happened over the phone that she recorded and took notes. I also sent her the pictures of my rental car and his car, both showing no damages.2 days later, I received a letter from the St. Louis court that the third party has sued me for damages.I have a legal plan from my employer that will cover all my legal fee if I plan to fight the case in the court.Additional information: I did have 3 minor incidents in past 2 years when I was at fault and that has already caused my insurance go up by 30%.What is the best way for me to proceed?1. Should I fight in the court? If I win, what do I get? If I lose, what do I lose? What will be the impact on my driver license in either case.2. If I should fight, should I use my legal service plan or should it be my company's car insurance company paying for the legal fee.2. Should I simply pay the other party $350 from my pocket. What will be the impact on my driver license in that case as the accident is already reported.
