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

I have the pink slip expensive motorcycle and was awarded it

I have the pink slip for an expensive motorcycle and was awarded it in family law. My ex is hiding it and despite being a convicted felon, is violating the court order to turn it over to me. The DA won't prosecute him although I successfully got them to look at the case. The DA said it was a family law matter and they could not consider it "stolen". What can I do???

I am a student with two vehicles primarily in my name, along

I am a student with two vehicles primarily in my name, along with a cosigner(my mother). I received a notice that for verification of insurance and discovered that the insurance lapsed for the date requested. My mother has been paying the insurance, or so I thought. I am in medical school, in Alabama and worry about being slapped with a misdemeanor conviction along with the fines and jail time associated with having two vehicles uninsured. They asked for the date 4/3/16 and the current policy's effective date was 4/14/16 and is current. I know I will have to pay for new registration but wondered about the charges/jail/suspension of license chances are especially since I have one year of college left.

I own a Driving School. I was in my training vehicle on the

I own a Driving School. I was in my training vehicle on the freeway solo. I was traveling in the lane next to the carpool lane. I was moving around 30 MPH. I had to apply my brakes suddenly because the car in front stopped quickly. I noticed my brake pedal was not releasing all the way. Which caused my car to not accelerate properly. I felt like my car was going to stop on the freeway. I tried to speed up. I was trying to free my brake pedal with my other foot. Because of my probllem and the traffic, I did not want to get stuck on the freeway. I looked in my left hand mirror and over my left shoulder. I saw it was clear. I entered the carpool lane. I wanted to make an emergency stop on the left shoulder of the freeway. At the same time a CHP officer on a motorcycle came right behind me with lights and sirens. I was having a problem speeding up. I had my left signal on. He got on his loud speaker and said speed up. I managed to get my brake pedal loose and sped up to pull over on a bigger part of the shoulder. I pulled over as I I got my papers ready as he walked up. I tried to explain I was having a car problem and I own a Driving School. I have an extra brake cable that got stuck. It connects both brakes. He took my papers and said I should know better than to cross the double line and being solo. I'm not sure he heard me. He abruptly said hold on and walked back to his motorcycle. I noticed there was a car that pulled up behind his bike. They talked for a few minutes. I thought that was weird. It was a woman in a regular car. He then watched her as she took off. He returned and said he was going cite me for being solo in the carpool lane solo only. I new once he wrote the ticket that was it. I signed it and left. I went to my mechanic who checked and fixed my brake system. There is a cable that connects both brakes that got stuck.What is my recourse A-Z trial by declaration with evidence. I know it is not a moving violation. Just a traffic infraction. I want to show the problem I had. What are all my options.
