DMV related question: I am currently in US on a f1 visa. My

DMV related question: I am currently in US on a f1 visa. My STEM extension expires on 07/17 and so does my driver's license (California). I plan to enroll into a new course and continue my studies. There is a gap of almost 1-2 months, between my STEM extension expiry and new I-20 generation. Is there any way to get a license for that period? Is there any grace period for expired license in CA?

Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Saftey Act

Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan for Trafic Saftey Act 253(3). Failure to report accident to police officer. I did leave the accident site a block away as it was a very busy intersection with no parking lane. Police on scene within 5 minutes and met him as I was walking back to accident site a police officer intervened and gave me growing through red light which is a fine and it is paid. I had no intention of evading him and I was returning to scene. As I understand it ignorance of a law is not defensible, and I am fine with pleading guilty, however I do not know what penalty is for this charge and want that information before I appear. Question is what are range of penalties for pleading guilty ??? There was no impairment and police officer did a ask sobriety related questions and was satisfied with my response.

My son and I , his mom, are on the title and loan used

My son and I , his mom, are on the title and loan for a used car in Colorado. The car had a problem with steering and holding the road, it may be that the computer was never updated .My son almost had an accident right off the lot, swerving uncontrollably into another lane.He called the dealer, who said the tires are fine, drive it a few more days. The next day the same thing happened only this time , going below the speed limit, he veered across 3 highway lanes and was rearended. The car was totaled. Miraculously no one was hurt.We are now waiting for the insurance company to determine the insurance claim.What do you think? Do i need to hire another lawyer to go after the dealer or Audi?

Can a police officer, driving in his own personal vehicle,

Can a police officer, driving in his own personal vehicle, issue a citation (moving violation) without having pulled over the accused and without having the accused sign the citation? This event occurred in the state of Maryland. The event took place at 7am on a weekday and my vehicle was in the right lane of a two lane merge from one highway to another. I was traveling the speed limit (65mph) and fastly approaching a car ahead that was traveling at 55mph (I know because I had to match his speed) and the officer's personal vehicle (I found out later that it was an officer) caught up to my left, blocking my car from merging left. I slowed to fall behind the vehicle to the left (the officer's) and he dropped his speed to match mine, thereby blocking me from merging and effectively pushing me onto the the shoulder. I was going to drop speed further, however, there was another car behind his and I ran out of space. I was now on the shoulder and to avoid an accident - which is very possible as a result of the unsafe condition caused by the officer's vehicle and the vehicle ahead which was under the speed limit by 10mph - I decided to do the safest move I could; I rode onto the shoulder, so as not to strike the vehicle to the left, and I rode around the vehicle in front (on his right, which isn't legal - I know). In this situation, what is one to do? What's the best defense in court to display the necessity of such an action?
