I have a question as to whether I should appeal a moving violation

I have a question as to whether I should appeal a moving violation I received today. I was pulled over on the freeway by the CHP (California) for a speeding ticket. He said I was going 83 even though when I saw him parked my speed was under 80. According to the ticket he used a radar gun. But that is not my main issue or question. I was in the far left lane of a three lane highway. When he approached me and flashed his lights I pulled over to the left breakdown lane vs. the right because there were too many cars and I was really nervous and wanted to stop as soon as possible. As I was stopping he told me to pull over to the right break down lane so I started speeding up but couldn't gain enough speed to merge with traffic as there was an underpas s with some obstructions in the lane. At that point he told me to stop, which I did, and then he came to the drivers side very angry, yelling at me with profanities including f-this, f-that "what part of what I told you to do didn't you understand, etc." He wrote me up for two violations. One was speeding for 83 mph in 65, and the second was for a "Failure to Pull the Right" which he originally wrote as code 22108: "Any signal of intention to turn right or left shall be given continuously during the last 100 feet traveled by the vehicle before turning." He crossed that off and put 21806 which apparently is "Upon the immediate approach of an authorized emergency vehicle which is sounding a siren, the surrounding traffic shall, except as otherwise directed by a traffic officer, the driver of every other vehicle shall yield the right-of-way and shall immediately drive to the right-hand edge or curb of the highway and thereupon shall stop and remain stopped until the authorized emergency vehicle has passed."I want to at a minimum fight the second violation given I tried to move over and the traffic violation codes have nothing to do with what actually happened. I also want to contest that I was driving 83 because it is a $369 fine @ 16+ MPH over 65MPH vs. a $238 fine @ 1-15 over 65MPH. This is a financial hardship ... do you have any recommendations on how to make my best case for this?

Three years ago I got a flying under the influence, I tested

Three years ago I got a flying under the influence, I tested .05 when you're supposed to be under .04. It's not considered a dui and doesn't compound because of those nor does it count against future dui's. However, since I had enough dui's to have a restriction on my license that states use of drugs or alcohol invalidates my license, the department of public safety cancelled my license iminicable to public safety for three and require three years of ignition interlock to get it back. Is this right?

I am a resident of GA and I rear-ended another car in St.

I am a resident of GA and I rear-ended another car in St. Louis, MO while driving a rental car on my company insurance. We were both standing on the red traffic signal, when my foot slipped off the break and my car barely touched the car in front. There were no visible damages to the two cars. The other party kept shouting and asking for my insurance. He said he called 911 but when no one arrived for 30 min, and he kept harassing me asking for my driver licence and insurance, I called 911 and cops arrived in 10 min. The cops looked at the two cars and said that there were no damages but the other person insisted on filing a report and said that he will take insurance claim. The cop clearly stated that he will mention in his report that there are no damages to either cars. I took multiple pictures of my car and the other party's car.A few days later, the other party left 2 voice mails asking for ~$350 in damages and his insurance company also called me but I did not reply to them. Later, I got an email from my rental company's claim representative and I gave her a statement of what happened over the phone that she recorded and took notes. I also sent her the pictures of my rental car and his car, both showing no damages.2 days later, I received a letter from the St. Louis court that the third party has sued me for damages.I have a legal plan from my employer that will cover all my legal fee if I plan to fight the case in the court.Additional information: I did have 3 minor incidents in past 2 years when I was at fault and that has already caused my insurance go up by 30%.What is the best way for me to proceed?1. Should I fight in the court? If I win, what do I get? If I lose, what do I lose? What will be the impact on my driver license in either case.2. If I should fight, should I use my legal service plan or should it be my company's car insurance company paying for the legal fee.2. Should I simply pay the other party $350 from my pocket. What will be the impact on my driver license in that case as the accident is already reported.

A officer that recognize me from a past dui in a Walmart parking lot getting into my truck and ran my name not my tag number. When I left he pulled me over and said my license is suspended. I did not know that. Can he do that and just pull me over cause he recognized me?? My license was restricted a few weeks prior to that when I check the status. Has been restricted and have had the interlock device in my vehicle for 2 yrs now.

I received a 89-4A traffic ticket in MA on 8/17/16 for unsafe lane change. The cause for the unsafe lane change was a blown tire which caused me to swerve. The officer was in the car in front of me. He put on his lights and we both moved to the side of the road. He didn't want to know why I swerved. He gave me the ticket at 12:34PM. I then called AAA on my cellphone for a tow (no spare-call logged at 12:51PM). The tow truck came and took the car to a tire dealer (I have the tow truck receipt) where I waited three hours for a new tire (Tire receipt). Should I plead not guilty and extenuating circumstances?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have notJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think so
