  1. Parking Tickets: Re: Did Not See Parking Sign

    Yes, there is a chance. Bring photographs supporting your story.
  2. Reckless Driving: Re: Falsely Accused of Reckless Driving After Almost Hitting a Pedestrian

    I am sure any good lawyer could get you off, but lawyers cost money. And as people have pointed out, penalties in Virginia are severe. So it's ultimately your call. Buf if you don't think you're...
  3. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Improper Moving Violation

    I searched for the infamous city code 10B, but could not find it. The best I came up is this fee schedule. I have never heard of any restriction in lane change due to proximity to an intersection...
  4. Speeding Tickets: Re: What to Do After Getting a Speeding Ticket, VC 22350

    There is a chance, and not just because "there's always a chance". If you think you didn't drive that fast, fight the ticket. Even if you did drive 48mph, fight it. There is more than one way to do...
  5. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Misuse of Horn, VC 27001(A), Honking at Police Officer

    You have every right to challenge this ticket. A driver not moving at a green light is obstructing traffic, and obstructing traffic is unsafe for obvious reasons. You don't want to be rear-ended by...
  6. Other Violations: Re: Challenging a Cellular Phone Ticket Based on the Officer's Statement

    If you weren't talking or texting at the time he caught you, it's pretty safe to say you did before or were about to, and the judge will know this too.The right thing to do is lay off your cell phone...
  7. Speeding Tickets: Re: Ticketed for Speeding Over 25mph of Speed Limit Due to Gps Misleading

    You can challenge his 60mph estimate but, if the speed limit was 5mph, you won't get out of it altogether. Challenging 60mph would be more convincing if you stated yourself how fast you were going,...
  8. Determination of Fault: Re: Responsibility for an Accident Precipitated by a Late Left Turn as the Light Chan

    By all means challenge this bum rap in court. If there are any witnesses against you, it is highly unlikely they will show up in court. If they don't, anything someone else or something else (like a...
  9. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Fighting 1110a Ticket

    If I understand what you said correctly, your ticket was for driving a commercial vehicle in HOV lane. It is not for failing to register a vehicle as commercial (which would be the owner's...
  10. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Fighting 1110a Ticket

    If this was in New York City, then your vehicle is clearly not a commercial vehicle because it doesn't bear commercial plates. So you should definitely challenge the ticket, and you should win.

    3 sec yellow light may be legal if she was turning left or right, and the turn was regulated by a separate light. Nonetheless, tehre are many ways to contest red light camera tickets, ans this is an...
  12. Speeding Tickets: Re: Ticketed for Speeding and Failing to Register a Vehicle In-State

    I hate to be a bearer of bad news but, if this is a residence district with no posted speed limit, then no traffic and engineering study is required. What would that study need to justify? The prima...
  13. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Ticket for Violating a New Sigh Prohibiting Turning on a Red Light

    The only thing that makes sense right now, with the information provided so far, is that the sign in question is "No Turn On Red." But certainly the poster should clarify.
  14. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Using a Sudden Emergency as a Defense to a Carpool Lane Violation, VC 21655.8(a)

    If you just want to ask for traffic school, you don't need Trial de Novo, as there is no need for the officer to be there. Just go to court at the normal arraignment time (usually early in the...
  15. Speeding Tickets: Re: Basic Speed Law Speeding Ticket on an Interstate Highway

    The first thing you do is read the statute you are cited for, cvc 22350. Prima Facie speed as far as 22350 is concerned is defined by 22351:

    22351. (a) The speed of any vehicle upon a highway...
