. 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 want to drive but I'm afraid a car accident will but my

I want to drive but I'm afraid a car accident will but my other assets at risk. I have a alright job and I made some money so I bought a house. I worked long and hard and saved up for a long time. I don't have a driver license or a car, but I'm considering to get one as walking to everywhere is not very convenient. But what I'm afraid of is that since I'm a new driver I'm mostly going to get in a car accident and when I do I put my house and other assets at risk. I'm not exactly sure what to do in these situations. Should I just refrain from getting a car or is there anyway I can protect myself when I do get in a accident?

He was not texting. He was talking with the phone in his lap on speakerphone. Please assist!

Hi. I was in a car accident in October 2016 (someone hit me from behind while in traffic) but they hit me hard and I had to tell my insurance. They told me to pay the deductible. I then began to feel pain and opened up a claim. To be honest I still feel pain but dropped the pain claim because it was too much for me to work and be glued to a chiropractor. I'm still waiting for my deductible but insurance said for sure I'm getting the money because it was obviously the other vehicles fault.Just now I'm turning to my left and with 2 lanes turning to the left, this old little lady who can barely see over the steering wheel, is turning as well on the lane next to me (I'm on the right lane turning left at the light and she's on the left lane turning left at the light) I go and continue on my lane and she somehow drifts over and hits me by the back right where I put gas in the car. So it's obvious that she's at fault. I'm waiting for the cops to come. I know I'm not at fault. There's really just a dent and scratch on my car and I'm late for work but she's trying to be tough and called the cops- meanwhile it was her fault.Is this something I should open up another claim for? And is this going to hurt my insurance. Will they drop me since it's 2 accidents (both not my fault ) ? Will my insurance go up? Should I just forget the dent and the scratch? What if she opens a claim. Her paint was more smudged than mine.
