  1. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Marin County, Carpool Lane Violation Fine $465

    The sign would be correct even if it said $13.75. As far as the inflated fine, California is wasting money far more quickly that they can figure out ways to get it. The state has no incentive to...

  3. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Do Companies Sue If You Don't Pay Civil Demands

    Aaron...are you aware of any major chain store (Wal-mart, Target, REI, Sears, etc.) ever retaining a civil demand company that ever sued anyone, ever? If so, in which court did it take place? I don't...

    Re: International Maritime Law

    Are you thinking of becoming a pirate?? (I'm not one but when I was in the Navy, I did drink a lot of rum...Arghhhh!!)
  5. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Suspected of Stealing Far More Than I'm Charged With

    You need to read my post again...especially the last sentence. I'd respond further but I couldn't make sense of most of what you wrote.:confused:
  6. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Do Companies Sue If You Don't Pay Civil Demands

    Civil demand firms (almost all in either Florida or New York) don't sue people; they try to intimidate people. An investigative reporter did a story on the subject (on ABC, as I remember) and found...

    Drunk and Impaired Driving: Re: Chances of Winning a DUI Jury Trial

    Personally, if I blew a .17 twice, I'd go to court and ask for the 'standard disposition' and I wouldn't waste a nickel on a lawyer unless I thought there was some compelling reason that I could...
  8. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Wrongly Accused of Shoplifting in California-Questions About My Rights

    I wouldn't hire a lawyer and I wouldn't pay the civil demand. You're not going to be arrested and your chances of being sued are incredibly close to zero. I WOULD stay out of Ross stores.

    Failure to Yield: Re: Ticket Regarding 21806(A)

    I find this one interesting! Highway 101 is a mess and he was most likely trying to create a 'traffic break' (slowing down traffic behind him) because there was some traffic problem ahead.....I've...
  10. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Shoulder Passing on a Motorcycle, VC 21755

    I just mentioned the part about lane sharing as an aside although I also feel sure he knows the difference since so many of the CHP motor officers regularly do it . I think the important part is...
  11. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Shoulder Passing on a Motorcycle, VC 21755

    As long as you were within the lane, you were "lane splitting" (which I'm sure you know). It's an interesting situation because, in California, it's considered to be neither legal nor illegal. The...
  12. Re: International Driving With Suspended U.S. License

    I've owned motorcycles in 4 different countries and have rented them in about a dozen others. In most countries, you can ride temporarily with either what appears to be a valid license from your...

    Re: Keeping Property in Family

    I think you'll find that once the property is his, there is no way that any conditions you make will be enforceable, but a real, live estate attorney could give you information you could rely upon...

    Defamation: Re: Stopped for Being Overweight

  15. Personal Investment: Re: Investing Zimbabwe Currency in Gold or U.S. Dollars

    For those who might have interest: The Zimbabwe dollar is worth almost nothing anywhere. There's a website that sells a trillion Z$ for $9.99 U.S.

    It was abandoned as official currency of the...
  16. Drunk and Impaired Driving: Re: Would You Take a Reckless Driving Plea for DUI

    I'd take it no matter where I lived unless I felt certain (as advised by counsel) that I'd prevail at trial.

    Prenuptial Agreements: Re: Is a Prenuptial Agreement Necessary

    Any appreciation in your cars or anything else that you already own will be yours alone.

    The same would hold true for your house if you truly owned it. Since there's a mortgage, the situation can...

    Texas is a community property state so each of you retain ownership of individual assets that you own prior to marriage. However, most assets acquired after marriage become community property and...

    Re: Taxes on a Vehicle Bought Overseas

    I purchased a brand new BMW automobile and picked it up at the factory in Munich. You have absolutely zero to worry about as far as it meeting U.S. specifications.

    Even if BMW would sell you a...

    Pretrial Motions: Re: Motion to Dismiss (Florida)

    I think your attorney is in a much better position to know that than anyone you'll hear from here. So, what did your attorney say about that possibility?
  21. Failure to Yield: Re: Failure to Yield - Merging on to Highway

    What you've described is a growing (and dangerous) problem in California. All too often, people have the strange notion that when they merge onto the freeway, that motorists already occupying a lane,...

    Chemical Tests: Re: Hospital Blood Draw

    Total nonsense! When attorneys have medical problems, they hire medical doctors. When medical doctors have legal problems, they hire attorneys...think about it.

    The point of the article that I referenced is that it doesn't have any effect....nor would you expect that it would (at least I wouldn't).;)

    Chemical Tests: Re: Hospital Blood Draw

    Some breathalyzers won't differentiate between ethyl and isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) but I'm pretty sure (not certain) that all blood draws would.

    For anyone who's interested, there was an...
  25. Re: California 23123a - What is a Wireless Phone

    The law doesn't say anything about talking on the phone. What it does say is that you can't USE the phone. I know several people who've tried defending their actions by producing phone...
