My son received a traffic citation in Douglas County Colorado. He is 18 yrs old and was driving a car registered to me.The officer made my son sign something and then gave him a physical paper that has my name on the ticket, my name as the registered owner of the vehicle and this copy has no signatures on it.There is no mention of my son's name anywhere on this paper and it is requesting a court appearance on August 3rd.Is this correct or did the officer make a big mistake or error when writing the ticket.Thank you, Briant.

My wife got t with reckless driving in VA driving 12 miles

My wife got hit with reckless driving in VA driving 12 miles over speed limit on interstate. She was driving 82 mi/hr I believe. First-ever offense. She had car tailgating her in acceleration lane and accelerated to clear the way and move to right lane. However she was picked as she was the first in the queue speeders, who got away with it.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Nop. I am her husband and inquiring informally about the case.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not really. No prior convictiion or any felony or other nefarious activities. Cleabn recorrd through and through. Officers have the authority to downgrade the speed by a few miles for drivers with clean records. In this case, hard to understand what made the officer snap and refuse to downgrade by a mere 2 mi/hr- which would have been speeding only....JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia around Richmond. VA derfines reckless by number of criteria including driving over 80 mi/hr regardless of speed limit.She was 2 mi/hr over 80 /hr.JA: OK. Got it.

I got pulled over today going allegedly 88 in Greensboro,

Hi,I got pulled over today going allegedly 88 in Greensboro, North Carolina on my way back from vacation in a spot that went from 70 to 55 for maybe a quarter of a mile. I was cited for reckless driving and speeding and given a court date for August 19th. My 2 questions are do I have to personally go to the court date or can I have a lawyer represent me as I live in Massachusetts and already know there's no feasible way for me to get to the court on that date. My second question is I had my cruise control set at 80 and definately hit my brakes after I saw the speed limit sign so how likely is it that the speed he put on the citation is wrong? He said he got me with his radar but there's no possible way I was going that fast I never touched the gas pedal.

I received a citation in Maryland for going over 100 in a 55 zone. I was anxious to pick my kids up from the airport since I hadn't seen them in over a year and I finally had an opportunity. (They live in a different state). My license is from Virginia and my driving record is clean. I don't even have a car or car insurance - I was in a rental. What do you advise?

I got a reckless driving ticket in Virginia, 90 in a 70. Went to court today and tje judge dropped it down to 85 in a 70. So it is not a 6 point offense, I was told it is only a 4 point offense. My question is, is it still a criminal offense having been reduced to 15 miles per hour over the limit?

I got a speeding ticket 1 year ago, it was reckless driving

I got a speeding ticket 1 year ago, it was reckless driving Because I was going 47/25. I went to court and sat for over 4 hours, the Judge never called my name and the officer and I were the only ones left in the court room. After a few minutes she pulls up my file and I go and plead guilty with a reason, as this was my first speeding ticket, and the circumstance was that it was late at night and this road was the smallest, most isolated road I had ever been on so I wasn't paying attention to the speed limit, I was just trying to get home because I didn't have much gas left in my car and I didn't want to stranded on that isolated road. I could tell the judge was tired, so she just said "your record isn't as good as you make it seem" and said she couldn't do anything about the ticket. However, what I told her was that I had never gotten a speeding ticket which was true, I wanted to ask if there should have been some kind of dismissal for my case, because I don't believe it's fair for me to wait all day in court and my name wasn't even on her list, then I have to get her at the end of the day when she just wants to go home. She was lenient on a teenager that had a dui but wouldn't let me get out of a reckless driving, which ruined my driving record. Also the officer agreed with everything I said, is there anything I can do, I really want to get that reckless driving off my record
