My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
My dad said he had to swerve to miss hitting a car that cut him off into the carpool lane. He did not know when to get out and the cops tried pulling him over. He thought is was unsafe to pull over and got scared etc. They got him to stop eventually and charged him with 28001a and 21655.8a.
His ticket said to appear on a specific date and time. I took him and they had nothing filed. Told him they have up to 9 more months to file?
He had no intent on evading police which I read was the requirement for that violation. He is elderly and if not now soon should probably not drive. I've asked people that have been in the car with him and I have not seen him being a danger to anyone.
Should he get an attorney or wait and see etc?
Any help/advise would be greatly appreciated.
