Heres the Scenario... I live in the State of Connecticut

Heres the Scenario... I live in the State of Connecticut1.My son, who is a problem driver has moving violations and two serious accidents.2. He still lives at home and is currently covered under my auto insurance policy3. He is buying his own car valued at $2,500. I want to move him off my auto policy and he will get his own policy 50K/100K/50K.Question:If he gets into an accident that is his fault and causes serious injury to the occupant of the other car, lets say $500,000 in bodily injury, his policy only covers $50,000 would I ,as his father, be on the hook for the other $450,000 because he lives in my house? Please advise. and remember he owns the car, he insures the car but he lives in my house

I have a CDL-A Lic and live in NY, I got a traffic ticket in

I have a CDL-A Lic and live in NY, I got a traffic ticket in PA with traffic code 3111 which based on what the officer said and research I did carries no points with it although it is classified as a moving violation (so shouldn't cause my INS rate to increase). My questions is 2 part. First and I'm pretty sure I already know the answer is whether or not, as my Lic is from NY I will get any points on my NY Lic. The second is the more critical, although with more research I am pretty sure that this ticket is not classified as a major or serious offense and although it will show up on my CDL-a due to the MCSIA rules I need to know if it will in any way jeopardize my CDL and therefore my job. I could try and hire a PA lawyer to get this dropped to a non-moving violation however given the minimal cost to the ticket if my job IE CDL is not in danger then I would just as soon pay the fine. If it matter I have a clean drivers LIC and have had for many years.

I got in a small fender bender on September 2nd. No injuries

I got in a small fender bender on September 2nd. No injuries and just a scraped bumper on the gentleman I bumped into. I didn't have my insurance card on me because I thought my wife had it. To find out (when I called her), she thought I was taking care of auto insurance as we split bills. So as my ticket was being written, she reinstated my auto insurance. So my card says I'm valid on the 2nd but "technically" it was till 20 minutes after the accident. Since I didn't immediately show my card, i have court on September 12th. Driving is my livelihood and I cannot afford to have a suspension. This is my 1st offense in not showing a current card. I have 1 speeding ticket in the past 12 months and that is my only violation. I have current updated auto insurance. This happened in Ohio in Stark County.

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign, this is the same street I drive everyday at my town. I recall I had stop and decided against making the left turn and went straight instead. The traffic cop stop me when I was half way down the street. This is my first ticket for non stop at red. What should I do? the officer told me to pay the ticket and I won't receive any points. But is this the normal process? Should I go to the court and plead guilty and pay the fine or should I hire a laywer?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NY state at Nassau county at Port WashingtonJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes I have a court date of Sept 30JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was never told what I did until the ticket was given to me should I be concern or this is normal practice?

I was recently pulled over by a Placer County Sheriff and

I was recently pulled over by a Placer County Sheriff and issued a traffic ticket for (1) horn(blasting) and (2) unsafe pass(on the right). The incident happened after I was passed by that same car on the right and then he cut in front of me and hit his brakes. I had to slam on my brakes (hard as I could) to avoid hitting him. He then kept hitting his brakes and flipping me off out his window, so I retaliated. Then I drove approx. 15 miles down the road and was pulled over by the Sheriff. As it turns out the 2nd car back was an off duty cop who had me ticketed. The off duty cop said he videoed me on his phone.Question: Is it legal for him to video me (while driving) and is it legal for him to use the video as evidence?Then 4 days later I got a letter from the Sheriff's office: an amended citation. They added (1) slowing vehicle on highway and(2) reckless driving.The reckless driving really pisses me off and I want that to go away.I haven't had any tickets in over 20 years (speeding) and want to keep my record clean. I know I shouldn't have done what I did but it's the old football player scenario of who got caught throwing the 2nd punch.I want to fight this ticket ( I am 62 yrs old, absolutely no wrecks and very safe and cautious driver ).I also noticed only one signature on the ticket. Can an off duty cop give me a ticket using a ticket from the cop who pulled me over and the off duty cop sign the ticket and use his badge # ?Help!!!Thx, Steve
