  1. Careless Driving: Re: Vehicle Hit While Parked on One Way Street

    If Party 1 is self insured, they may be required to have a bond for a certain amount of money in lieu of having insurance. If that's the case, you should be able to collect from that bond. But I...
  2. Hearings and Trials: Re: Asking for Restitution to Ensure Payment

    Apologies for hijacking this thread. JK - are you saying that in Michigan if you have insurance, you cannot be held liable for damages of more than $1,000 from an auto accident? If that's the case,...
  3. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Challenge or Deferral of Speeding Ticket in Wa

    The radar unit is mentioned on the first line, above the main body.

    The affidavit states that the officer "observed the defendant approaching & receding". Clearly that is not possible, at least...
  4. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Challenge or Deferral of Speeding Ticket in Wa

    I would disagree with this. I would expect most drivers know it's speeding, they might try to excuse their speeding but they still know it's speeding. What most drivers don't realize is that it is...
  5. Speeding Tickets: Re: Both Moving Mode and Stationary Mode Used in Radar Speeding Ticket

    The way you quote from the affidavit indicates that it is boilerplate to be used in either moving or stationary mode. It may be that the boilerplate is not filled out in a way that makes it clear...
  6. Speeding Tickets: Re: Both Moving Mode and Stationary Mode Used in Radar Speeding Ticket

    The affidavit is a boilerplate text most likely with check boxes to indicate which mode was used. You should upload a scan of the affidavit. I expect that one of these is checked and the other is...
  7. Speeding Tickets: Re: Speeding Tickets + Following Too Closely

    The affidavit is hard to argue with, but it is sloppy, so if you have nothing to lose you might as well try.

    searcher99 argument about not identifying the patrol vehicle is certainly something to...
  8. Speeding Tickets: Re: Speeding - Washington, Lower Kittitas District Court, Ellensburg - Discovery Encl

    The affidavit has this weird sentence saying "If the radar does not pass the test at the end of my shift I will prepare a supplemental report". This implies that the officer prepared the affidavit...
  9. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Red Light Ticket and Disobey Postage Sign (Do Not Enter)

    I would try these two arguments for this ticket:

    1: For the red light violation, you can say that the officer did not see the signal, since they were on the opposite side of the intersection. Now,...

    Speeding Tickets: Re: How to Proceed - Wa Highway Speeding Ticket

    Isn't this violating the right to a speedy trial? The OP did not request a continuance, so as I understand he did not give up his right to a speedy trial. If that's the case, how does one argue that?...
  11. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Does This Hold Up 21461(a) Argument

    On one hand it's nice that they clarified where the signs should be placed. On the other hand the precision is laughable... I could put a sign on the "nearest" lamppost 50 feet behind where it...
  12. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Does This Hold Up 21461(a) Argument

    Does the MUTCD state where the regulatory signs have to be placed with respect to where they apply? This sign is placed at the end of the intersection, i.e. after the place where you make the turn....
  13. Speeding Tickets: Re: When Must a Driver Be Warned of a Reduction in the Speed Limit

    Pennsylvania is interesting in that it prohibits measuring speed (with some exceptions) within 500 feet of the speed limit sign:
    ...
  14. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: North Carolina Red Light Camera - No Face Pic

    Doesn't the Turo app have a way of dealing with such situations? Have you contacted Turo? If they don't have a way of dealing with parking and photo tickets while your car is rented out, then you...
  15. Speeding Tickets: Re: LIDAR Speeding Ticket Received on a Dark, Rainy Morning

    In the officer statement he says that he "checked the unit for proper operation" but does not say what was the result of the check - was it passing the check or not? I think that pointing this out...
  16. Speeding Tickets: Re: Ticketed for Speeding in a School Zone, but Did Not See Flashing Lights

    Are you saying that no "Speed limit" signs are required for the 20 mph speed limit to apply? Can you cite that? That's not what I am seeing here:
    ...
  17. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Strategies for Defending Against Two Pending Traffic Tickets Issued to a Minor

    Might as well try to contest at least the first ticket, if not both. Mitigation hearing won't accomplish much - you might get a small reduction in fine, but it still goes on the record. If you want...
  18. Speeding Tickets: Re: Is Involvement in a Single-Car Accident Proof of Speed to Fast for Conditions

    Well, the affidavit does not say anything about speed. I would move to dismiss because of lack of evidence - the statement only says that you lost control but does not say that you lost control...
  19. Speeding Tickets: Re: Officer's Statement is a "Fill in the Blanks" Form

    Post the discovery here, as searcher recommends. Listing two measurements of speed could be used to dismiss it - it worked for others. The affidavit (being boilerplate) states that a single...
  20. Speeding Tickets: Re: What to Do if You Get a Ticket Within Another Ticket's Deferral Period

    I didn't know the circumstances of the accident until you pointed to the other thread. On one hand adjusterjack is correct that the fact you rear ended someone is by itself strong evidence that you...
  21. Speeding Tickets: Re: What to Do if You Get a Ticket Within Another Ticket's Deferral Period

    You should also consider contesting the ticket from the accident. Depending on the circumstances, the prosecution may not have sufficient evidence to convict you, especially since the officer did not...
  22. Parking Tickets: Re: Can You Get a Handicapped Ticket Dismissed if Your Placard Fell Off Rear View Mir

    FWIW we've had two Discovery Pass tickets dismissed when we forgot to display the pass by showing up in court and showing we had the pass at the time of the ticket. Actually my wife did the work, but...
  23. Towing: Re: Towing Company Threatening to Sell Vehicle

    How does the policy define "family member"? In the one example I saw online it talks about a family member who resides in the same household. So if that's the case and the GF does not live with her...
  24. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Court Hearing Date Scheduled Less Than 14 Days from the Notice Date

    I agree with you that the PA's offer is not particularly good. But since the PA reached out to you, I would counter with an offer to plea to a non-moving violation. If the PA does not take it, I...
  25. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Court Hearing Date Scheduled Less Than 14 Days from the Notice Date

    I would not discuss this background as part of your argument, at least not to begin with. The affidavit is sloppy - it does not describe the situation at all. Rather than explaining what the...
