I need help with a traffic ticket. The court day is the 14th

I need help with a traffic ticket. The court day is the 14th of May in Ohio I was coming from Champaign Urbana and they stopped me and make my two children cry of fear by the disrespectful police attitude. The man even asked me if "those children are yours"? They gave me a ticket for two separate issues: speeding and reckless driving... I have not idea why but I have my hypothesis. Speeding probably was correct but not reckless driving at all. My children are witness of the situation. I am a professor of Ohio University and I teach race and racism in some of my courses. I leant this topic at Cornell University and is part of my job. Would you be able to help me?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: what do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: Nothing... it is pretty straight forward...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know really

My daughter was cited for failure to yield when turning

My daughter was cited for failure to yield when turning left. However she was not actually in the process of turning left. She was sitting in the left turn lane waiting to turn left when the other party sideswiped her completely totaling her car. We got the ticket dismissed by showing pictures showing that the main impact area was on the driver's side, however geico is still refusing to pay her claim. What do you advise us to do to recover the property damage claim?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IdahoJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is there any way to have the police report amended/ case reopened and have the other driver cited for reckless driving. He has a history of this and killed a teenager nearly two years ago. Witnesses testified that he was speeding and changing lanes before the accident occurred. Unfortunately no one actually witnessed the accident because he had just gone through one intersection before the intersection in question. Also the speed had just been reduced from 45 to 25 as he went through the first intersection however he hit her with such force that her car spun completely around and ended up 90 degrees from where it started and several yards away

I received a letter stating my vehicle was involved in a hit

I received a letter stating my vehicle was involved in a hit and run based on my license plate. On the letter it states if I return the accident form "promptly" I will not be charged with hit and run. If the police send out a form that states that does that bind them legally to that at all? Or is this a way to make me incriminate myself?
