I live in Pennsylvania. I was coming down a city street and never saw that a school bus was stopped in the opposite direction with his stop sign out. This happened in the evening (it was dark out) and I never expected to see a school bus at that hour. Also, the stop sign wasn't flashing, it looked like it just had reflectors on it. As soon as I realized I passed it I stopped. I'm very upset about this. Do you think the bus driver had an opportunity to get my license plate number? I was probably about 50 feet away. I am also worried that the bus had a camera on it. A few seconds after I stopped he pulled away.

Should I hire a lawyer for this? What do you recommend and if I should how much should it cost?I received a misdemeanor summons in Stamford, CT for 14-219 last night on my way home. The short of it is that there was a flatbed tow truck on Washington Blvd driving erratically and taking up both lanes and I flashed my lights at him and when he finally moved over I put my Prius in power mode and stepped on the gas to pass him. Apparently I got up to 66 mph in a 35 mph zone (I was watching the road and not my mph).Thanks for your advice.

I have a summons to traffic court, General district Court at 4110 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA 22030, on Dec. 7, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. I was going 63 mph in a 35 mph zone through a toll booth. I would like to know what to expect in court and what I should say. If needed, I would like an attorney to accompany me.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: VA, in Fairfax county, as I indicated.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: all that has happened is the officer who stopped me wrote out the summons, and I am obliged to appear, as it is listed as reckless driving.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The officer asked if I knew why he stopped me, and I said no. he asked why I was going so fast, and I said: I don't know, I guess I did not pay attention.
This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the
This morning I pulled out of my house and came up to the intersection at my community, there was a school bus coming from the opposite direction (from my right) at the stem of the intersection when I was about to make a right turn. I could have made a turn, but I didn't because I saw the kids along the road to my right. So I waited until the stop arm was extended, and the kids safely boarded the bus, but at the same time another bus pulled up behind the first bus. I proceeded to make a right turn after the stop arm of the first bus was retrieved and the driver starting driving. Now I am worried that I may be in violation because the second bus was right there. I do not know if the second bus had already flashed the red lights.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: That's it. I have not been cited, but I am just worried. I had never had experience stopping for a bus, so I didn';t do it intentionally. As I could not see the stop sign because I was at the intersection, I just didn't know I had to stop.
