There seems to be some miscommunication with the arizona MVD

There seems to be some miscommunication with the arizona MVD and the interlock device. 1381A1 and A2 disqualify you for the 6 month deferment option. They claim it must come through as just "1381". I can find no reference to a law without the "A1" or "A2" attached, so this seems like a clerical error or misunderstanding. I had an A1 which I understand to be a "lesser" charge than an A2 ... yet they tell me I am not eligible for the deferment.JA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago, registered it, rendered it inoperable (had to repair the engine), and just got it working again a couple of days ago. Today, I was in a single vehicle accident where I also took out a large highway pole and sign. A state trooper showed up and recorded my insurance information; however, this vehicle is not yet on my insurance. I have insurance for my other car. What should I do? Should I contact my insurer? Should I be afraid of a "driving without insurance" ticket in my future? Ive read that there is usually a 2-week grace period to get a car insured. Is this long over for me since I purchased the car so long ago? My mechanic and some photos I have can prove the car was inoperable until a couple of days ago.

Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Saftey Act

Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan for Trafic Saftey Act 253(3). Failure to report accident to police officer. I did leave the accident site a block away as it was a very busy intersection with no parking lane. Police on scene within 5 minutes and met him as I was walking back to accident site a police officer intervened and gave me growing through red light which is a fine and it is paid. I had no intention of evading him and I was returning to scene. As I understand it ignorance of a law is not defensible, and I am fine with pleading guilty, however I do not know what penalty is for this charge and want that information before I appear. Question is what are range of penalties for pleading guilty ??? There was no impairment and police officer did a ask sobriety related questions and was satisfied with my response.

Accident, I hit someone from behind yesterday. My license was suspended but it is now fully legal as of today. The vehicle is in my wifes name and the insurance was also in her name. No ticket was given at the accident, but i was given a ticket for driving while license suspended. How should I approach this situation? Will the insurance company fix our vehicle? Accident happened in mississippi but we live and our residence is in tennessee.
