I have lived in CA for the past six months (work there). I still have not exchanched my driver licence and use NY driver licence. For certain reasons I do not want to exchange it to CA driver license. My husband also lives with me in CA and the car is registered in CA. What are the penalties if I am stopped and charged with driving with out of state driver license? Also if I am in accident -- can I get into problem with my insurance carrier (my husband and I are both on car issurance policy issued in CA).

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?

My husband got a ticket for 40-6-20 FAIL TO OBEY TRAF CTRL

Hi, my husband got a ticket for 40-6-20 FAIL TO OBEY TRAF CTRL DEVICE (2 MISDEMEANOR). In your opinion, would the judge be likely to accept it if he plead "no lo contendere" for this charge? Do you know how much the fines for this typically are? Is he expected to pay court fines immediately?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Atlanta, GAJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He just recently received a moving violation for changing lanes in an intersection also and we just paid the fine - will that effect this charge? Also the court date is tomorrow and we are considering using a lawyer if there's enough time.

You're right - the yellow light is way too short. Complete injustice.I'm overly cautious about yellow lights, yet I still got a camera ticket at the Rosecrans/Hindry intersection.This is such a cash cow for the City of Hawthorne! ;-)If I were to contact local litigation attorneys about spearheading a class action, do you have any advice?Also, I made the mistake of contacting the Court. Then, due to some misinformation, I thought I could ignore the ticket...The day after my fine and traffic school were due, they issued an invoice for an extra $479 for "failure to pay."Do you think I can somehow get out of the extra $479 late fee?Thanks!

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?
