I was driving up grade on a road posted speed was 40. I gave my van a little gas for the grade about 25% from the top of the grade. Once I came to view the road ahead of me directly at incline grade. I seen a highway patrol pold over to my right side of my lane. Right then I eased into my break and befor passing him. There was a business driveway to the left. Truthfully I didn't think I was speeding, but I had no valid driver's license. So I was nervous driving my commercial company van and eased into the driveway of the Ceramic tile company. At that time in driveway I was really coasting. Then looked in my review mirror. And boom he pulled behind me and turned his lights on. Then I stopped and shut off the van. I told him I don't have a valid driver's license, then gave him my current registration and valid insurance card.He the said do you have someone who can come get you, and drive your van home. I said yes, he then went to run my name and record. I than called a friend and him and his buddy we're coming to help me. Then I Sean a tow truck and I said lord god. Then the officer came back as my friends pulled into the drive to help. The officer said ,,you were being honest about no valid driver's license so he's only going to ticket me for driving 51 in a 40, and driving without a valid driver's license. Then said my van will be towed, but I can get it out with a valid license holder. I said ya that's them there to help me. You asked me if I had someone and here they are. He then said I could impound the van for 30 days. But since I was truthful about my license. He was only impounding it but bring my friends to the highway patrol office in an hour and he would release the van to my licensed friend. I got the van out a little over an hour later, cost 250.00 tow bill. And now have to appear in court for no license, and speeding, 51 in a 40. Is this legal, him being in no sight of me or my van tell I came to the peak of the grade. And boom having radar pointed to the back of his car right at me. I'm thinking ( entrapment) ?? Then not even squealing my tires, slowing down to turn left into that business. Without passing him parked to my right shoulder. Me easing into the drive, then he pulled behind me, then hit his lights. Does radar work like that, further he had a young lady, I'm thinking a ride along student. Like they do with kids that want to be an officer but get to ride along to see hands on how things work. Anyway, honest I told him I truly didn't think I was speeding. But I know myself about a25% distance from the top of the grade, I gave it some gas and ya. The van geared down one gear and it sped up quick. But I was off the throttle before I seen the officer. I only gave it some gas really cause I know I wasn't going fast enough for the grade and traffic. I just had turned left from a side road I was on. And was driving, I seen traffic coming up fast behind me. I felt the lag of speed for the grade and oncoming traffic. I knew I had to goose my little mini van. But then boom at peek, I let off and,,,,well you know the rest. Thank you for your help and time, God Bless. Dylan
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.

I have received a Courtesy Notice from Santa Clara Count,
I have received a Courtesy Notice from Santa Clara Count, CA.The alleged infraction identified as VC-21801A-IQ: If I file for a "Trial by Declaration", is it sufficient to point out that this statute does not apply? because I was entering from a driveway, and there was no possibility of "vehicles approaching from the opposite direction" ?[21804 might apply]Should I also point out that I did, in fact, yield the right of way?[I stopped in the nearer 'right-bound' lane, and did not enter the left-bound lane, and the car in that lane (a local police car) did proceed without incident/collision; stopping 50 feet later]That is: after looking right, then left, i pulled into the roadway, and checked back to the right (after clearing some visual obstructions) and saw the cop car the left-bound lane; so I braked, the cop and I looked at each other as he passed by (both of us surprised) so I finished entering, and pulled to the right shoulder, and he stopped further up and came back to request license and registration, and the spend several minutes thumbing through his code book looking for the right code, and finally came up with this for "failure to yield".Which is: "21801. (a) The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left orto complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public orprivate property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to allvehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are closeenough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turningmovement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to theapproaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made withreasonable safety."[http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=veh&group=21001-22000&file=21800-21809]"21804. (a) The driver of any vehicle about to enter or cross ahighway from any public or private property, or from an alley, shallyield the right-of-way to all traffic, as defined in Section 620,approaching on the highway close enough to constitute an immediatehazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to that trafficuntil he or she can proceed with reasonable safety."
What does Michigan law state about an impaired vehicle
What does Michigan law state about an impaired vehicle blocking a moving lane on a street or highway? And how would that play into a decision of fault if that impaired vehicle blocking a roadway causes an accident?
