I got into an accident (I hit her, only damages are from my license plate -slight scratches). The police weren't called. I didn't take photos but she sent the one she took. She sent me the estimate and told me that they could have done more but they didn't because she was doing me afavor. I told her I'll pay the company but she wants the money herself. Is there anything I can do to make sure that money I send goes towards the repairs without involving my insurance? On the estimate there is damage that I didn't cause on it. I don't want to continue to be extorted for money. This is my first accident and I don't know how to proceed legally

Is it against the law to delay moving through a traffic

Is it against the law to delay moving through a green traffic light in michigan. I received a ticket for texting and driving...but I was stopped and put the phone down before moving. It delayed me proceeding thru the light when it turned green. I got a ticket, it was for distracted driving (texting while at light, stayed at light after it turned green)..I still went thru the light as did many other cars, and I wasn't texting while driving. I researched Michigan driving laws and see that they say it is illegal to text while in a moving car but it is not illegal to text while stationary. I cannot find if it is illegal to not proceed immediately thru a green light however and am looking for any law that may prevent me from fighting and winning this case.? Could you help with any detailed reaponses?

I took my 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE with 7,700 to the dealership with the engine light on. They said it was the gas cap, which I explained to them was not the case as I had already tried. They said they would run the diagnostics and see.I left the dealership with no engine light on and they had said it was, in fact, the gas cap.I drove 10 minutes, parked the car, came out 5 minutes later and started the vehicle. The engine light was on again.I took it back to the dealership immediately and they then found a faulty gasket that affects emissions which apparently had a factory recall. They sent me on my way saying it would not cause further damage and they would order the part.I called today and they said that, according to the technician, I could drive like this for a year and it wouldn't harm the car, I just wouldn't pass emissions (I am going to be driving 1,000+ miles in the next 2 weeks).Their answers seemed hokey and I also feel no diagnostics were checked the 1st time.

A relatative had a vehicle repossessed 2 yrs ago at the time

A relatative had a vehicle repossessed 2 yrs ago at the time of repossession the license plate was not removed and turned into the DMV. My relative has a block that is presently on his license due to the plate not being turned in to DMV. My question is since he has no way of getting any info from the company that repossessed the vehicle the DMV wants my relative to pay over $1700.00 to have block taking off his driver license. He is a driver at his job and his job told him he can't come back to work until this problem is solve. He spoke to DMV and was told in their computer it shows when the vehicle was repossessed, however, they still want him to pay the $1700.00 so what if anything can he do? He needs his job desperately.

I live in SFO Bay Area. My son's school starts at 8:15am. It gets very crowded during the school starting time. Sometimes, I don't get parking space to park my car on the curbside. So, I park my car blocking a house's driveway. This house is very close to the school. I just have to cross the road and leave my son and come back to my car. It would take 2mins in total. When I see house owner's car in the driveway, I don't park my car there. So far, I have not had any complaints from the house owner.For the past couple of days, one of the moms is harassing me and cussing me for blocking someone else's driveway. She is not the owner of the property and she doesn't live in the neighborhood. Today, she took several pictures of my car as it was parked blocking the driveway.Is it illegal to block someone else driveway? What can she do with the pictures?

I was recently in a small fender bender on 9-2-16. Between

I was recently in a small fender bender on 9-2-16. Between my wife and myself, we missed having auto insurance coverage as I thought she took care of it and she thought I did. Right after the accident (roughly 20 minutes) I picked up liability insurance. The next week I went to traffic court. The judge had me pay a fine and 2 points on my license. Since I showed him valid current auto insurance, there were no other actions taken. Today I recieved a letter from the attorneys from the party I hit claiming they had injuries. Which there was not but that is regardless at this point. The letter they sent states they are trying to to determine if i had liability insurance at the time of the accident (which technically I did not, it was 30 minutes after the accident). I have two forms enclosed. 1 form states that I I DID have liability insurance and the other states that I did not. I am supposed to sign and return. It also states that if I do not send in that insurance information, they will forward the attached form to the Ohio BMV to start the process to have my license suspended. What do i do in this case?
