I was pulling a Trailer one night driving through Kansas and

I was pulling a Long Trailer one night driving through Kansas and I pulled into a park. To check my load. Which was hauling farm equipment. There was nowhere to turn around on the park and as I backed out onto the road and pulled about a quarter-mile on the road I got pulled over. The officer stated that I had ran over a stop sign I told him I didn't know that I had backed over that stop sign I didn't hear it or feel it. I also could not find my insurance card but I do have insurance. So the ticket says failure to provide proof of insurance. Which I know I can get that taken care of period but the other thing on the ticket says criminal damage to property. Actually went back the next day as I was passing back through and had the equipment to repair the stop sign. The stop sign itself was not damaged it was just pop out of the ground and laying down. I fixed the stop sign and took a picture. Tomorrow is my court date and I'm starting to get concerned that I didn't contact an attorney. This criminal damage to property is really concerning to me. How do I defend myself?

I was driving on a street in the reservation area. The street was deadend so I had to make a U turn in order to get back on the street and continue on my way. after making the U Turn I notice there was a police car parked all the way on the Right side of street with its tires over the street pavement. He was with a road side assistant which was standing in the middle of the street (The street has 5 lanes. 2 on the left, to on the right and one on the middle and I was driving on the right side). As I approach the police car and the road side assistant car I slowed down and the road side assist waved his hand to indicate me to keep moving and not slow down and as I got closer to him he kept saying go. so I passed the road side assist and the police car. Then I noticed the police car turned his lights on as he was backing out of the street pavement. So, I was confused if I had to stop or not since he was not following me. I drove very slowly for 500 foot on 10 miles per hour speed to see if he was intending to stop me but he never followed me after that. Did I violate any laws or should I be concerned about this?

I barely clipped a parked car on the street while pulling

I barely clipped a parked car on the street while pulling out of a parking lot. I could not stop nor turn around due to traffic so I continued driving until I could find a spot to turn around. Not even a block a way I was pulled over, arrested and booked for a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of an accident. I was released on my own a few hours later. It's been a month and I now have to appear in court. What should I expect? The car I hit still hasn't submitted anything to my insurance either.

I was in a supermarket parking lot and pulled out and apparently scraped the front of another car. I was unaware of the incident at the time I just thought I bumped the cart return or something. Later I received a letter from the Denver police department that I was to appear in court, I received it two weeks after the date of the case. Now I am not sure what to do?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: This is in Colorado and I am not sure of the year of the car. I could not even tell you what it looked likeJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There apparently was a report filed and reported they had my license #JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not really I just was not sure what to do at this point, I believe they put out a warrant for my arrest?

A friend has a very old speeding ticket (8+ years) that she got when she was living in Oregon. The way I understand it, it, she was mailed the ticket as it was from a van parked somewhere we think in Beaverton. Her address was her mom's home, but she is estranged from her mom and her mom never sent her the ticket. My friend is living in California. My friend makes limited income and is not going to be able to afford this ticket after 8+ years.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Oregon was where the ticket was recievedJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Other than getting a ticket, nothing has been doneJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that is all I know at this time

I was in an accident two years ago in Florida and didn't pull my tag. Approximately a year later, a car was found on the side of the road with my license plate, the car belonging to another individual. I was sent a ticket for an expired tag as well as the car being improperly parked. I contacted the city and explained the situation and they told me that I was not liable, but I am now being contacted by debt collectors. Am I liable even though I was not in possession of my license plate?
