My son received a traffic ticket in Mahoning County in the

My son received a traffic ticket in Mahoning County in the mail in 2012 via a traffic camera. the ticket was lost, and when he went to renew his license in PA (state of residence) the moving violation was on his record, so PA suspended his license until he cleared up the Ohio ticket. He has now moved to WI to stay with me, and he cannot get his WI license until he settles with PA, which means settling with Ohio. How do we go about rectifying the situationJA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He received the ticket in OhioJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: I have no idea, the ticket was lost many years agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Will this cost me?

I was pulled over today for a suspended drivers license that

Hi there! I was pulled over today for a suspended drivers license that I never knew were suspended. All the officer to tell me that it was for a safety issue so doing some research it says it could be passable I was involved in an accident with damage over $500 to someone else's car or bodily damage etc. I filed a police report three years ago when I was in a private parking lot of an outdoor shopping mall, and both of us were backing up at the same time and collided but gently. I gave them my drivers license and insurance card and took their's and also I took pictures of the damage to both cars because they just wanted to walk away and try to make me believe it was my fault. I went to the police stationJA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: And when I file the report at the police station in Illinois told me that this happened on private property and that it would have to be handled and a civil level in civil court. I did not pursue it and just replaced my tail light and I had the bumper touched up myself I don't even have that car anymore however I had got a couple notification From the department of transportation talking about this incident and saying my license could be suspended I never went to court and was never given fault for this accident From the department of transportation talking about this incident and saying my license could be suspended I never went to court and was never given fault for this accidentJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filed a police report and then the other party filed a police report after me even though they wanted to flee the scene but I have never been notified of a court date of any civil matter and the second part was that the police department told me something happened on private property they could not issue a ticket of fault I try to get video footage from a local store but it did not pick up the collisionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so I just want to know can they suspend my license like this and I was never even notified it was suspended I don't think so I just want to know can they suspend my license like this and I was never even notified it was suspended

I live in southern Chandler, AZ. I got pulled over and cited

Hello, my name is***** live in southern Chandler, AZ. I got pulled over and cited for reckless driving in Globe, AZ while heading up to visit my family on a wedding retreat before my moms wedding. I had been driving on the 60 up to Pinetop, AZ and the speed limit had been 65 for 90% of the way there. I noticed it had moved down to 45, so I was averaging around 50 mph through Globe. I hadn't realized that the speed limit had moved from 45 to 35. I was in a hurry to go see my family because it's a special retreat my sister had planned out several months in advance for it to be special for my mom and her (at the time) fiance. On the road there were I believe 5 lanes, with one of those being the middle dotted yellow line section. That middle section, I had always thought, was for passing and making turns. So I went to make a pass around somebody that was driving roughly 30 mph, and I got pulled over shortly afterwards. I had tried to explain to the cop my story and my reasoning, but he didn't believe what I was trying to say. He did an eye test on me because he thought I was on drugs or under the influence of some other substance or something. I've never done drugs once in my life, and I rarely ever have anything over the counter or subscriptions. He ended up calling over two more officers to come do this same test on me, and one of them asked if they could search my car because they didn't believe me either. I consented to the search because I have nothing to hide and watched from the back of my car on the ground as he tore through my car and my trunk with all of my belongings for the next 2 days I was going to be in Pinetop. The officer cited me for reckless driving, and I had to go to court to see a judge all the way back in Globe a couple weeks later. I plead guilty because I've never been in this situation before and I didn't know what to do, so I thought I would just pay the fine. I'm paying this fine over the course of several months now because I'm practically broke and living paycheck to paycheck with the absurd amount of bills I already have going on right now. The reason I give this long backstory is because I just got a letter in the mail tonight from the MVD saying that as of April 24th, 2017 my driver's license will be suspended for 3 months. I have no idea why my license is being suspended, I don't understand. I'm a pizza delivery driver for Papa John's. I use my car on a daily basis for work, and I have to pick up my little brother from school almost every other day and my other brother from work sometimes when my sister can't. I can't have my license suspended because I will lose my job. Please tell me what to do. The letter says I have until 15 days after the letter was sent (4/4/17) to request a hearing on this matter, which is 4/18/17. I'm confused, I'm only 19 years old and I live at home with my newly married mom and her husband and the rest of my siblings. I don't know what to do.JA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: The letter says my license will be suspended for 3 months starting april 24th, I want to know how to stop that from happening because I use my car everyday for my job as a driverJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I pretty much summed up the story in that first paragraph I think

I passed a stopped bus which had a stop arm out in Iowa. I was on the opposite direction with the bus and there were two lanes for each directions. I checked the information on Iowa DOT, it shows that I do not need to stop in that situation. But the bus driver sounded the horn, I am not sure if I will receive a ticket. Is there something I misunderstand?

I am thinking about a new venture. I have an opportunity to run hotshots. But some of the cargo will be automobiles. I will be using a 36' flatbed trailer. I am under the 26K GVWR so no CDL is needed. I have no problem getting a DOT number. Now here is the issue. I was told that i would need to get a TDLR # as a tow truck. I am not a tow truck. I will not be hauling cars for the general public. I will be hauling to insurance companies and dealers. I have tried to call TDLR to verify this but of course they are closed today.
