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?

Hello, I was stopped in Windsor Locks CT for having my high beams on, unfortunately I was arrested for DUI ( .11 ) The ticket read, DUI 14.227 plus reckless driving 14.222 ( High beams ) which I believe at most is an infraction . If the wrong charge is written wrong can the whole ticket be dismissed?

I got a speeding ticket 1 year ago, it was reckless drivingView more traffic law questions
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
