Legal Answers
23 Questions Answered
Q. Wrong vehicle listed on speeding ticket
A: Why in the world would you plead guilty by paying the ticket and receiving the points? The Citation can be proven defective! Yes, you should absolutely request a trial - not a "waiver hearing? - and consider retaining an attorney to represent you. If you can establish that you were driving a vehicle at the time of the stop that was not the make and model of that reflected on your Citation, an acquittal can certainly be requested. Indeed an attorney might take the opportunity to take the Deputy/Tpr. aside before the case is called, point out his/her error and persuade him/her to offer no evidence against you to avoid the public embarrassment of the error.
Q. TA-21-201(a1) Contributed to Accident Defendable?
A: You should submit a trial request and appear in court. If the Officer fails to appear, the Citation will be dismissed. The Citation to 21-201(a1) should not specify whether your failing to obey a traffic control device under that subsection contributed to an accident. Frankly, I've never seen that specified on a traffic citation form. Rather, evidence that a violation contributed to an accident is typically offered in court if you request a trial and testimony is taken. Upon a judicial finding that an accident resulted from the violation, the MVA would then impose 3, rather than 1 pt. However, if you appear in court and even if you were technically found guilty of the underlying violation AND that it contributed to an accident, you could still avoid the imposition of points by obtaining "probation before judgment." An experienced traffic lawyer could be of great assistance to you in obtaining that possible outcome.
Q. my son just got his 2nd speeding ticket in 60days...12mph over and 23mph over...will he lose his license tks terry
A: Each of the violations carries a 2-point assessment upon conviction. The loss of your son's license would be dependent on whether he has any existing points or if he is a provisional license holder. Accumulating eight points will result in a suspension. a provisional license holder would also be facing a possible suspension due to that status on Additional information would be required to provide a more precise opinion.
