My 20 year old son is a student at Clemson University, very

My 20 year old son is a student at Clemson University, very good student, plays sports etc. He has no other speeding or other moving violations previous to this incident. He and his roommate were driving to Easely last Friday morning. He was talking and "not paying "attention" and he received a speeding ticket. 91 in a 65 mile zone. The officer clocked him at 88 and 91??? In SC it is 6 points. I believe it is 5 in Maryland. The officer told him to come to court and they would talk about it. I e-mailed a traffic attorney in Columbia, he advised him to go to court and if he didn't feel comfortable then he would go with/for him and we would pay him the fee. Our questions: 1. Speeding is misdemeanor in SC. My son desparately wants to attend medical school will this be a problem? 2.) Our insurance, I have several boys.... I know they will be notified. 3.) What happens to his driving record in Maryland? I read that Maryland may or may not give him the points? 4.)He wanted to know if defensive driving school in lieu of any ramifications in Maryland is an option. He would take it over Christmas break. 5.) SHould I get an attorney to go? WHat is the best way to minimize the damange please? Thank you

I got into an accident (I hit her, only damages are from my license plate -slight scratches). The police weren't called. I didn't take photos but she sent the one she took. She sent me the estimate and told me that they could have done more but they didn't because she was doing me afavor. I told her I'll pay the company but she wants the money herself. Is there anything I can do to make sure that money I send goes towards the repairs without involving my insurance? On the estimate there is damage that I didn't cause on it. I don't want to continue to be extorted for money. This is my first accident and I don't know how to proceed legally

Is it against the law to delay moving through a traffic

Is it against the law to delay moving through a green traffic light in michigan. I received a ticket for texting and driving...but I was stopped and put the phone down before moving. It delayed me proceeding thru the light when it turned green. I got a ticket, it was for distracted driving (texting while at light, stayed at light after it turned green)..I still went thru the light as did many other cars, and I wasn't texting while driving. I researched Michigan driving laws and see that they say it is illegal to text while in a moving car but it is not illegal to text while stationary. I cannot find if it is illegal to not proceed immediately thru a green light however and am looking for any law that may prevent me from fighting and winning this case.? Could you help with any detailed reaponses?

I took my 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE with 7,700 to the dealership with the engine light on. They said it was the gas cap, which I explained to them was not the case as I had already tried. They said they would run the diagnostics and see.I left the dealership with no engine light on and they had said it was, in fact, the gas cap.I drove 10 minutes, parked the car, came out 5 minutes later and started the vehicle. The engine light was on again.I took it back to the dealership immediately and they then found a faulty gasket that affects emissions which apparently had a factory recall. They sent me on my way saying it would not cause further damage and they would order the part.I called today and they said that, according to the technician, I could drive like this for a year and it wouldn't harm the car, I just wouldn't pass emissions (I am going to be driving 1,000+ miles in the next 2 weeks).Their answers seemed hokey and I also feel no diagnostics were checked the 1st time.

A relatative had a vehicle repossessed 2 yrs ago at the time

A relatative had a vehicle repossessed 2 yrs ago at the time of repossession the license plate was not removed and turned into the DMV. My relative has a block that is presently on his license due to the plate not being turned in to DMV. My question is since he has no way of getting any info from the company that repossessed the vehicle the DMV wants my relative to pay over $1700.00 to have block taking off his driver license. He is a driver at his job and his job told him he can't come back to work until this problem is solve. He spoke to DMV and was told in their computer it shows when the vehicle was repossessed, however, they still want him to pay the $1700.00 so what if anything can he do? He needs his job desperately.
