Traffic Code Questions

What is the traffic code?

Traffic code is a collection of rules and regulations that have been put forth by the law enforcement authorities of the United States in order to regulate traffic in different parts of the United States. The traffic code may differ in different states of United States. It is important for individuals to know about the traffic code in their respective states. Given below are questions about the traffic code that are commonly asked by individuals.

What is the traffic code of Utah for driving without a driver’s license?

According to the traffic code of Utah, in some cases it may not be possible for individual’s to drive without a driver’s license on public roads, highways and quasi-public roads which are private property but can be used by the public.

Can a traffic citation be dismissed if the traffic code given on it is wrong?

If an individual did not commit the traffic offense and did not violate the traffic code given on the ticket, then the ticket may be dismissed.

Would it be considered a violation of a traffic code if an individual parked behind a handicap parking for a brief period of time to unload a student in California?

In most situations, whether an individual violates traffic code or not when this individual parks behind a handicap parking depends on the parking space itself. According to the California Vehicle and Traffic Code, an individual may be prohibited from stopping or parking in a handicap parking lot unless they do so to avoid conflict with other vehicles on the road or on instructions from a traffic control personnel. Generally, in such situations, a police officer may not file a violation ticket against the individual if this individual has had their vehicle removed from the parking space as soon as possible and then does not cause any more issues with other traffic.

Can an individual ask a traffic officer for the original copy of their radar equipments recent calibration?

According to the traffic code, depending on the case there may not be any particular statute that gives an individual the right to ask a traffic officer for the original copy of their radar equipment’s recent calibrations. However, in some situations, the individual does have the right to ask the officer for a copy to use as evidence, especially if they believe that they were wrongly accused of a traffic violation.

Would it be considered illegal if an individual drove on a yellow line but did not cross it?

In some situations, this can be considered a public danger if an individual drove on the yellow line of a road. The reason for this is because, if cars from both the sides of the road drove on the yellow line, it could result in a collision. If the individual is stopped in such a situation, they can argue that since they had not cross the yellow line, this individual that was still driving on the right half of the roadway and hence did not break the law.

The traffic code that applies to you may differ depending on your situation and jurisdiction. It is important for you to be aware of the traffic code so that you can take the right kind of action in case you have been held for a traffic violation. There are so many aspects that the traffic code covers, that it may not be possible for you to research about it on your own. You can ask an Expert and get more information if you want to know more about the traffic code.

Recent Traffic Code Questions

  • Hi!, I have a Notice to Appear ticket form the Beverly Hills

    Hi!,
    I have a Notice to Appear ticket form the Beverly Hills Police Dep. How much do I need to pay the date of the court, how many pints are going to be on my record and do I need an attorney to avoid more fines or community service?.
    I left my child in the car while picking up my other son. The traffic lady saw my 3 yr old in the car and it she was sweaty. Then she called the police. When the police arrive I was already in the car with everyone ready to go. The told me not to go anywhere and finally, they gave me this traffic ticket.

  • I was pulled over in front of the White House for driving slow

    I was pulled over in front of the White House for driving slow (my wife was taking a picture of the beautiful White House, and I was indeed driving very slow because there was no cars behind or around us at the time). The Traffic Code was "T206, Fail to Clear Intersection". The cop said I ignored him when he signaled for me to move faster, but I honestly did not see him (standing by the edge of sidewalk) at all until he gestured for me to pull to the side. At first, I thought it was a routine security check of ID since I was driving slow and my wife taking pictures of the White House, but never imagined that I'd get a ticket that bears two points (according to the cop) for driving slowly in front of the White House. By the way, I have the photo which shows the view of White House and there was just side walk on the right side between White House and my car (not a through street).

    I am from California and obviously could not go to court there just for fighting this ticket. Frankly, I am OK with paying the fine ($50), but the two (2) points is killing me and will drive my insurance sky high. So, is there anyway I can fight this one and how? Thank you very much (in advance).
