I was driving up grade on a road posted speed was 40. I gave my van a little gas for the grade about 25% from the top of the grade. Once I came to view the road ahead of me directly at incline grade. I seen a highway patrol pold over to my right side of my lane. Right then I eased into my break and befor passing him. There was a business driveway to the left. Truthfully I didn't think I was speeding, but I had no valid driver's license. So I was nervous driving my commercial company van and eased into the driveway of the Ceramic tile company. At that time in driveway I was really coasting. Then looked in my review mirror. And boom he pulled behind me and turned his lights on. Then I stopped and shut off the van. I told him I don't have a valid driver's license, then gave him my current registration and valid insurance card.He the said do you have someone who can come get you, and drive your van home. I said yes, he then went to run my name and record. I than called a friend and him and his buddy we're coming to help me. Then I Sean a tow truck and I said lord god. Then the officer came back as my friends pulled into the drive to help. The officer said ,,you were being honest about no valid driver's license so he's only going to ticket me for driving 51 in a 40, and driving without a valid driver's license. Then said my van will be towed, but I can get it out with a valid license holder. I said ya that's them there to help me. You asked me if I had someone and here they are. He then said I could impound the van for 30 days. But since I was truthful about my license. He was only impounding it but bring my friends to the highway patrol office in an hour and he would release the van to my licensed friend. I got the van out a little over an hour later, cost 250.00 tow bill. And now have to appear in court for no license, and speeding, 51 in a 40. Is this legal, him being in no sight of me or my van tell I came to the peak of the grade. And boom having radar pointed to the back of his car right at me. I'm thinking ( entrapment) ?? Then not even squealing my tires, slowing down to turn left into that business. Without passing him parked to my right shoulder. Me easing into the drive, then he pulled behind me, then hit his lights. Does radar work like that, further he had a young lady, I'm thinking a ride along student. Like they do with kids that want to be an officer but get to ride along to see hands on how things work. Anyway, honest I told him I truly didn't think I was speeding. But I know myself about a25% distance from the top of the grade, I gave it some gas and ya. The van geared down one gear and it sped up quick. But I was off the throttle before I seen the officer. I only gave it some gas really cause I know I wasn't going fast enough for the grade and traffic. I just had turned left from a side road I was on. And was driving, I seen traffic coming up fast behind me. I felt the lag of speed for the grade and oncoming traffic. I knew I had to goose my little mini van. But then boom at peek, I let off and,,,,well you know the rest. Thank you for your help and time, God Bless. Dylan

I received a speeding ticket in Indiana doing 70 in 55 in a work zone. However, my ticket states workers were not present. There are also speed limit signs up stating 55 when lights flashing - which they were not. So I thought I was doing fine and going the speed limit - which normally would have been 70 without workzone speed limit being enforcedJA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The county judge mandates court appearances for issues like this.

20-years ago, when I lived with my mother in Tucson AZ, I got a vehicle speeding ticket. I moved away soon after, and must have forgotten to pay the ticket. Since then I am not aware of getting any forwarded mail from my mother concerning this issue. Last week my mother informed me that a claim letter had arrived from the Tucson court system for approx. $900 for the unpaid ticket. Do I have to pay this after 20-years? I have lived in NY State for the past 15-years, and have no intention of relocating back to AZ.

I got in a small fender bender on September 2nd. No injuries
I got in a small fender bender on September 2nd. No injuries and just a scraped bumper on the gentleman I bumped into. I didn't have my insurance card on me because I thought my wife had it. To find out (when I called her), she thought I was taking care of auto insurance as we split bills. So as my ticket was being written, she reinstated my auto insurance. So my card says I'm valid on the 2nd but "technically" it wasn't untill 20 minutes after the accident. Since I didn't immediately show my card, i have court on September 12th. Driving is my livelihood and I cannot afford to have a suspension. This is my 1st offense in not showing a current card. I have 1 speeding ticket in the past 12 months and that is my only violation. I have current updated auto insurance. On the bottom of the ticket the violation code was 4511.38. Now when I go to court, I will have my current insurance card that states I had insurance on the 2nd but not technically until 20 minutes after the accident. So when I go to court am I supposed to just hand over my current insurance card and hope for the best? I'm wondering if I will be in violation of the insurance AND the accident or just the accident. Im battling severe depression lately and this is really affecting me. I can't lose my license as driving is my livelihood. Thank you for your time.
