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?

I am concerned that I will be given a citation for passing a school bus while driving a work vehicle. How long do they have to send you a citation for this? It would be based upon the bus driver giving my work vehicle license plate # to the police.I didn't start to pass it while the lights were red, I was in a parking lot and turning right when the stop arm started coming out as I went by. Can I reasonably fight this if I receive one? Thank you for your help.

My daughter just recently found that there was an outstanding warrant out against her social security number when she was stopped today. Some one got in trouble and gave her social security number to the police. She believed the name on the warrant is not hers and we were wondering what she can do to get this cleared off. This is in the state of ohio

I had a Washington state drivers license which was suspended a few years ago for failure to pay tickets. The total cost to pay is about $3,000. I am moving to CA next month and am wondering whether the CA DMV will allow me to retake a driver's test and with my WA ID then issue me a driver's license if I pass, or whether CA somehow knows my WA license was suspended FOR LACK OF PAYMENT OF FINES. If not, maybe CA will not have any problem. Can I get a license in CA for ordinary costs?

Daugh was in car accident hit by a drunk driver, 2nd
Daugh was in car accident hit by a drunk driver, 2nd offense, and the other drivers ins is not being very cooperative. They wont pay the storage fees or issue us a rental car since they are "still investigating", accident was 6 days ago. They called the house and talked with my daugh & during the conversation I didnt feel good about what I was hearing from my end so I took the phone and told them all the info they needed was in the police rpt. They now say I was impeding the investigation and it will take longer. They asked me to move the car to a nonfee storage facility, which I didnt want to do but did, and to send them pictures of the car. Isnt that their job? They say the issue is who came to the stop sign 1st, "dual responsibilty" which means to me they want to blame part of it on my daugh. Does it really matter who came to the stop sign 1st since the other driver was in the wrong lane and hit my daugh while drunk? There were no witnesses so how can they determine that? Cops said my daugh was not at fault & had the right away, other driver was arrested. She hurt her neck but will prob be okay, MD called it classic whiplash and gave her a script, will do addl studies if prob doesnt resolve with 2-3wks.
