My son just received a ticket for failure to observe TCD. (He turned left at the light, instead of using the jug handle). He didn't notice, because he was trying to find his turn. (Unfortunately he was also out past curfew picking my daughter up...)The police officer was very nice, and told him he didn't need to go to court, but when he went to pay his ticket, they said he did. Now I see all these things online saying these situations call for an attorney, and they make it seem very very serious...just looking for some advice as to how to help him...But would love some honesty and not these scare tactics that I have seen floating around...yikes!! Thank you in advance!!!JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New JerseyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No...didn't know if that was necessary. That's kind of what II am trying to find out.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Nope, I don't think so.

I purchased a vehicle Friday night late & made a big

Hi ***** purchased a vehicle Friday night late & made a big mistake. I also made a wise move in my favor. Please advise – details listed below.1. Paid cash $2400 for 2003 Ford Explorer July 22, 2016.2. Bill of Sale signed by 3 parties, myself & a supposed husband, wife team.3. Husband & wife did not own the car. Seller(he) told me Alan was his Uncle.4. I will list four people. Buyer=myself, Owner=actual owner, Seller(he)=husband; Seller(she)=wife The sellers are the only people I met.5. Owner told me he wants nothing to do with the sale of the vehicle. He gave it to sellers to sell it for whatever they can get. He works & is too busy to deal with the transaction. When I talked to him he claimed to be with his wife at a movie & therefore couldn't talk loud. He said he would not get home until 2AM & would not want to deal with the car then. He stated that in the morning he leaves early for a family reunion in Milwaukee. I only assumed he meant WI but I see that his address was originally Milwaukee Avenue, perhaps he was just going there but was misleading me by making it sound like a big trip. Totally unknown & not useful.6. Supposed owner talked to me on phone – promised full refund if fan-belt replacement did not correct the sound coming from engine. He told me to get his number from Seller & I can call him. He told me that Seller(she) is his very close niece who he feels is his daughter. She will handle everything & give her license & sign the paperwork. He claimed they were a married couple.7. Sale was contingent upon fan belt replacement, reads as follows: *Fan belt needs replacement if noise persists after fanbelt replacement full refund is promised. Initialed by seller. Seller(he) stated I not only have Alan's number but I also have his number, if there are any problems including the fan-belt issue, just give him a call & he will be happy to respond & help solve the issue.8. Both sellers signed the document “Bill of Sale”9. Seller(he) included his drivers license with photo, address etc. Photo taken.10. Seller(she) told me her license was not available. Printed name & signed.11. I took photo of both sellers.12. In the “Assignment of Title” line the owner put his name by mistake & crossed it out. Then he printed his name & signed.13. Title appears clean & vin number was checked with no apparent issues. One owner of the car.14. My neighbor, George heard of my purchase from his son who had driven me to the location & loosely met the sellers.15. He wanted to see my vehicle & make me feel better about it. So I showed it to him & he took a ride.16. He approved of the car. Liked it's outward condition, almost excellent.17. He approved of the way the car was driving. Told me I should not worry about this purchase.18. He then listened to the engine with the hood up. He told me that he is sure it is not a fan-belt but rather a much more serious engine problem, timing chain, valves, etc.. Told me he knows cars but we must now go to a professional mechanic for a professional opinion.19. Saturday I called the number seller(he) gave me for Alan. No one answered, I left a message.20. Saturday I called seller(he) & told him I may be requesting the refund however that will be contingent upon the review of the mechanic on Monday morning. I told him I called Alan & left a message but there was no answer. I read the number to him –(###) ###-####& asked that he confirm the number. He confirmed it is correct. I informed him that the repair of the noise could be $800, $1000 or even $1200 or more. Also informed him that other things did not work even though he assured me that they did. For example I told him we could not get the Air Conditioner to work. He insisted that I broke it, it was working when he sold it to me. I told him not to worry, I am having to take responsibility for everything except the noise of the supposed fan-belt. That is the only issue I will be calling him on, everything else is mine.21. Seller(he) told me that if the vehicle does need repair of the engine because of the noise, than what if he gave me money to fix it, wouldn't that be enough. Surely I'd want to keep this great car under that circumstance. He said.22. I told seller in above communication that my option was to take a full refund & I wasn't prepared to relinquish that option at this time. Wait till we get the mechanic's opinion. I said.23. My phone received a text from(###) ###-####stating that I may have the wrong number.24. Took car to long established credited mechanic on Monday morning 8AM.25. Called seller(he) Monday morning to inform him that the vehicle is in shop being tested for the noise problem.26. Seller(he) Told me he spoke to Alan & Alan told him that the deal was done. Handshake, cash, finished. The buyer has got what he got deal is sealed. He became irate
