    I think a labor law attorney would better. To show a false positive is tough and here as I understand your post you do not have the job only an application. I do not know if you can contest that

    Mark’s Answer

    Careless can be beaten but the better move in terms of time is either to pay it and rake a safe driving course to remove the points or go in and ask the prosecutor for a 0 point ticket. Check to see your ins. carrier is on both with either or both.

    I would not post such information on the web with a general location tag. Driving revoked is serious. if there is an accident. A random stop etc. As to your question i do not know. Also your contract with the company likely indicates no to drive without the license and you may not be covered for events. There are many excuses for breaking the law yours will not do well in court.

  • I got a failure to keep right complaint summons, is it worth pleading not guilty to avoid the ticket and points?

    Burlington County New Jersey, a car was directly in front of me and on the right side of me. Cop said I didn't get over - because there was a car next to me that I would have crashed into if I got over.

    Based on your post it is a 2 point ticket although there are some that sound the same that are more. If it is a 4-82 it is just 2 points. If you fight this it is just the time to worry about. Retaining an attorney does not make too much sense unless the points would raise your insurance (not likely but check) or put you over 6 points for a surcharge. Otherwise the worst that can happen is a higher fine than that on the back of the ticket, (the ticket price is only if you pay before court). Or you could go to court and try to get a 0 point ticket but a 4-97.2 (unsafe) is $439 so unless you get a cheaper 0 pointer it makes no sense as well. If you pay you get 2 points but if you take an approved safe driving course that is removed. (again check with your carrier to make sure they give it to you as well).

  • How many days you spend inside on a 364 days in Union county jail.

    My brother got 364 days in county jail. Any lawyer can help me get him out on any early release program like house arrest or something.

    Mark’s Answer

    The rule of thumb is 1/3 off but if the jail is crowded it could be much less.

    Se the answers to you other post. You need to speak to an attorney rather than post facts on an open web.

    Mark’s Answer

    I suggest an attorney. Depending on fact you do not post and should not post you could lose your right to a license, be surcharged for three years. Same for the NC guy. The document violations can be worked out easily. What do you mean by a routine checkup. if the cop ran the plate it is OK, if it was a roadblock that is not routine and there may be a defense.
