. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway

Hello. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway in the Town on Evans, Erie County. Cop pulls me over and says I was going 81 (limit: 65) mph. Also said the car right in front of me was going 77. I would have hit that car if I was going 81. Speeding? Yes. 81? No. Either way, speeding. I'm concerned with the 'Plea of Guilty' wording on the citation, 'liable to a penalty, but in addition your license to drive a motor vehicle and your certificate of registration, if any, are subject to suspension and revocation...' If I plead guilty, will I receive only a fine as issued by a judge (the cop says so and sarcastically asked if I'd like him to write me a speeding ticket instead when I didn't understand the UTT) or am I opening myself up to points, suspension and revocation? Appears to be the evolution of the photo radar, i.e. cash grab. I don't want to run afoul, but am I setting myself up to incur more than a mere fine? Thank you for your opinion. Sincerely, ***** ***** Love NY

I got into an accident (I hit her, only damages are from my license plate -slight scratches). The police weren't called. I didn't take photos but she sent the one she took. She sent me the estimate and told me that they could have done more but they didn't because she was doing me afavor. I told her I'll pay the company but she wants the money herself. Is there anything I can do to make sure that money I send goes towards the repairs without involving my insurance? On the estimate there is damage that I didn't cause on it. I don't want to continue to be extorted for money. This is my first accident and I don't know how to proceed legally

Is it against the law to delay moving through a traffic

Is it against the law to delay moving through a green traffic light in michigan. I received a ticket for texting and driving...but I was stopped and put the phone down before moving. It delayed me proceeding thru the light when it turned green. I got a ticket, it was for distracted driving (texting while at light, stayed at light after it turned green)..I still went thru the light as did many other cars, and I wasn't texting while driving. I researched Michigan driving laws and see that they say it is illegal to text while in a moving car but it is not illegal to text while stationary. I cannot find if it is illegal to not proceed immediately thru a green light however and am looking for any law that may prevent me from fighting and winning this case.? Could you help with any detailed reaponses?
