I will make this a short as possible. Two years ago my

I will make this a short as possible. Two years ago my daughter was pulled over for speeding. The police officer was behind her but did not activate his lights until she turned onto a second road. He issued two speeding tickets since it was two different roads. When she went to court, they said she could lose her license. She agreed to a non moving violation... which was a misdemeanor. They said it was no big deal just pay the fine. Fast forward two years, she went for an apartment, and the landlord asked her if she had an altercation with police because it says non traffic related misdemeanor. Is it true in Pennsylvania it will leave her record after 3 years or should we try to have this expunged? I'm afraid this could even put her in danger if she is ever pulled over by police.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This is already on her record. It happened in Feb of 2015JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's it thanks

Philadelphia traffic law Daugher, in a rented vehicle at

Philadelphia traffic lawDaugher, in a rented vehicle at school in Philadelphia received a Red Light Camera video and photos from the Philadelphia Parking Authority.It says she's the registered owner of the car. There is no shot of her in the car. I haven't checked, but she likely was driving it. I am admitting nothing by this question, but answer assuming she was guilty of running a red light.Are red light cameras enforceable in Philadelphia? Do they share the info with Seattle or California?They have a mailing address for her in California.Would this show up on her DMV/Insurance report?

I have a question about a citation I received in Hollister,

Hi there;I have a question about a citation I received in Hollister, California. I was driving east in the middle of our very busy town and came to a four way stop. At the four way stop there was a police officer at the four way stop headed north at the stop signs and also another passenger vehicle headed south at the stop signs. I sat and waited for either one of them to proceed through the intersection and neither of them proceeded. I waved the passenger car to go ahead and they just stayed at the stop sign looking at me. I looked again at the police car and just wondered if maybe the passenger car didn't want to go ahead of the police car proceeding through the intersection. I finally proceeded about 20 feet into the center of the intersection. As I go to the center of the intersection out of my right peripheral vision I saw some movement and turned my head to the right to see an ambulance just stopping by my rear passenger side door. Reflexively I jammed on the brakes because that was the first moment I was seeing this ambulance. It was traveling in the wrong lane and was right next to the police car that was headed north. I thought for a second and decided the best course of action was to continue through the intersection as opposed to trying to back up to get out of the ambulance's way because that would be the quickest way out of their way. As soon as I started back to finish getting through the intersection the policeman put on his siren to pull me over, which I did immediately. The officer cited me with 21806 (CA)1 Failure to yield for an emergency vehicle. He said he had the leeway to cite or not cite but opted for citing me. I told him I didn't see the ambulance until right when I was in the center of the intersection but that didn't seem to affect him at all. I got the ticket and sat there for a bit to calm down. I turned around and went back to the place where I had been sitting at the four way stop to try to figure out how I wouldn't have seen the ambulance and realized that immediately to my right on the same street that the police man was sitting there was a very large RV vehicle sitting blocking my view from any ability to see down that street. The only way I would have been able to see the ambulance is if it had been parallel to the police car because the RV obscured my ability to see down the road at all. I wasn't at all expecting a car to be traveling the wrong way in the lane next to the police car. I had heard a siren in the distance but there is a very dense traffic pattern where I was with many intersections in the down town area very close together. When the ambulance got close I didn't hear any siren or see any lights. I have challenged the ticket I got and am going to court tomorrow morning. I was wondering if you have any pointers to assist me in representing myself in court in the morning other than the RV was blocking my view and that I didn't see the ambulance until it was right next to my passenger door. The police officer said that the ambulance had to slam on it's brakes to stop. If it was traveling quickly it's my thinking that it must have been some distance from my car in order to have had enough time to actually stop. Definitely more than the roughly 20 feet of visibility I had of that traffic lane. I was cited as going 10 mph so going 20 feet probably took me about 1 second to go about 20 feet. I was able to come to an immediate stop when I saw the vehicle out of my peripheral vision to my right with what looked like a pending collision.If you have any pointers that might help it would be appreciated.Thank you,Customer

I have a question about a driving ticket received in

Hello, I have a question about a driving ticket received in Indiana, 9-25-8-2 of the I. C. CODE. My brother borrowed a truck of mine because he was temporarily without transportation. I made a bad mistake because I let the insurance on the truck lapse. I actually didn't even realize it was due. Totally my mistake but not intentional. He had the truck for several months and it was out of sight out of mind.Unfortunately a lady rear ended him a few days ago as he was waiting for traffic to clear to make a left turn. He did have his brake lights on and his turn signal was on as well. There is a witness to those facts.He received a ticket for operating a motor vehicle without insurance. He called me when the accident occurred and I called the insurance company only to find the coverage had lapsed. He didn't know there was not insurance on the truck when he borrowed it. Again, totally my fault.My question is this, should he just go ahead and plea "Admit", sign the ticket and send the check (which of course I will pay)? He risks having his license suspended for 6 months.He isn't angry about that but I feel terrible about it. Or, should he go before the judge on his court appearance date and attempt to explain that he was unaware there was no current insurance on the vehicle he borrowed?Thank you in advance for your advice.Craig K.

I am a licensed Physical Therapist. I applied for a position

I am a licensed Physical Therapist. I applied for a position for a 26-week contract for a company in San Diego, through a travel company. The travel company recruits clinicians, to meet the needs of other companies. After screening, an interview takes place. If the interview goes well, a credentialing process is by the traveling company. This is an 2-week ordeal that includes physical, drug screen, background ck, licensure verification etc. I completed this process, met all of the criteria for the position, signed a contract for the 26-week assignment. I also had to have 2 other clinicians speak in my behalf for references. After my contract was signed, I let the place that I currently do Physical Therapy for know that I was leaving.The background check came back with no criminal record. The dmv report revealed a history of a few speeding, moving violation tickets. The travel company's corporate office reviewed this dmv report, and have pulled back their offer, and will not send me on this assignment.As previously stated, I have met ALL of their criteria, including a valid driver's license. I have completed their credentialing process, they have all of my personal information. Can anything be done about this?
