My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Texas
Just hoping to get a little advice on the subject.
My car is old and I've been planning to buy a new one when money permits. Because of this I haven't renewed registration/ inspection because it's expensive.
Today I received four citations. Expired registration, no drivers license on demand (I left my wallet at home), operate vehicle without license plate or registration (why is this a separate citation from the first), and failure to pay toll (I have an EZ tag!!!) I was pulled over on a toll road but I was not failing to pay.
The last one is total bs, I have an EZ tag that I pay regularly. The cop said my license plate number is different than what they have on file. ok but how is that failure to pay?
My question is basically what should I do. Obviously I'll take care of all the issues lacking, should I get a lawyer? Should I just take care of all the issues and hope the court drops the tickets? When I get my new registration and they ask if I received a ticket (because it's very expired they always ask) what should I say. What happens if I say no(they will give me a current date)
Thank you very much in advance
P.s. I have a lot of respect for police, but this kind of forced solicitation in an agregeous manner is very disheartening. I wasn't even speeding!!! I haven't been ticketed in years.
