My son received a traffic citation in County Colorado. He is
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'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Traffic Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
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.
