. 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

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
