Other Violations: Code 5200(A)- No Plates; Listed As a Moving Violation

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California I was given a ticket today for having no plates on my car. The officer listed it under traffic (moving violation), but I'm not sure if that is correct. I believe all moving violations result in a point being put on your license as well? Can anyone shed some light if on this situation... - Can a 5200(a) violation be a traffic/ moving violation - What will be the result? Just roughly $200 fee, or will it include a point ...

Speeding Tickets: 21 in 20 School Zone

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: WA School zone ...21 in a 20 ;-( What are the odds this will stand if contested? The officer didn't provide any paperwork. No agree to appear either written or verbal. He said I'll see something in the mail. I don't think he has me on SMD. He got the car in front of me and told me I was "going about the same speed". I suspect (hope) I won't see anything in the mail. Question: If no paperwork was shown to me, is this really a cita...

Parking Tickets: Parking in a Crosswalk (Vc22500b) at a Location with No Sidewalk

My question involves a parking ticket from the state of California. The car was parked at a T-shape intersection on the side of the road with bushes, no sidewalk (gray celica after the stop sign) https://www.dropbox.com/s/culu8a3fwd...th_St.png?dl=0 This location doesn’t seem to fit the definition of a crosswalk as per California Code, Vehicle Code - VEH § 275. Can there be a crosswalk if there is no sidewalk? Is this a valid violation? Thanks.

Offered Choice of Ammender Infraction. Which to Choose

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: WA I was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign. Via email I've negotiated to ammend the infraction to a non-moving violation in hopes this will keep my insurance from going up. The prosecutor has offered me my choice of either expired tabs or violation of the seatbelt statute with a penalty of $136. Any reason I'm not aware of to choose one over the other? I figure either: 1) It doesn't matter. 2) Maybe the seatbelt one could stil...

Speeding Tickets: Speeding Ticket in Pennsylvania, Accutrac

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Pennsylvania I got a ticket this morning where the cop said I was going 46 in a 25. This surprised me, because the road before a small straight part if windy and I stopped and went slow to look at the creek. After the bend, I can see maybe I was going 35, but not 46, especially when I was getting ready to make another turn. The cop used Accutrak. My issue is this. On the ticket, for miles timed, it says .027. Pennsylvania Code Law 3...

Parking Tickets: Can I Fight This Parking Ticket in Chicago

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Chicago, Illinois I recently got a parking ticket and wish to contest it. There was no "No Parking" sign anywhere near where I was parked; in fact, there's a stump where a sign used to be. I believe this ticket is unfair and would like to fight it. However, I do not own the vehicle that was cited (I borrowed it from my girlfriend). When I went online to request a contest, it required that you declare that you're the registered owner of ...

Traffic Lights, Signs and Controls: Ticket for Violating a One-Way Sign in a Parking Lot

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Maryland (but on Federal property). Earlier, I got a moving violation ticket for not following a one-way sign within a gas station parking lot. I did go the wrong way against a sign, but the signs were situated at a 90 degree angle to the path of driving, which means I couldn't see them at all until it was too late to turn away, nor did the pathway I was driving on have any signs signifying that it going to become one-way only. The small...

Private Lot “fines”

My question involves a private parking lot “fine” from the state of: Texas My daughter parked in a private lot. Due to rather deceptively placed signs (only at an entrance coming from a dead end street; NOT at entrance from main street), she did not realize she had to pay. She went into a coffee shop for 5 minutes and returned to a “parking notice” with a “fine” of $75. I know that the states of CO and CA have ruled such fines unlawful, determining owners of private lots may only charge the p...
