    Scott’s Answer

    No recording. No transcriptionist. Doesn't seem like you will be able to have anyone review what actually happened without some record of the hearing.

    Scott’s Answer

    You got a warning so no worries. Sometimes an officer will follow you and claim he was trying to catch up or safely pull you over...sometimes to see if you do anything else wrong or questionable in order to make a decision on possible tickets or just a warning. Either way, an officer is likely to claim it was the safety reason if questioned about it at some point..

    Scott’s Answer

    I don't know all the procedural aspects in AZ, but we have identity issues all the time. Speak with a local attorney about it and try to convince the court it wasn't you. Key to these matters is sometimes what identification in particular the officer was given at the time of the car stop(s).

  • Are EMT plates exempt from cell phone ticket ? Is calling a doctors office a good validation to waive the the ticket?

    Scott’s Answer

    Needs to be an emergency. Plates on your car or person on the phone doesn't automatically make it one--each situation is different.

  • Does it make sense to hire a lawyer for a red light photo ticket? And why is a red light ticket different than a photo one?

    I just want to know if I'd save money and why the photo tickets are different than if I was to run a red light and get pulled over.

    Scott’s Answer

    One is written directly to the driver (stopped by an officer) and one is written simply to the registered owner (camera). The camera ticket is treated as a parking violation because the individual driver can't be identified. Parking violations don't go on anyone's record and thus don't have points or insurance ramifications. Camera tickets are annoying and can add up to a legit expense, but they are much better than actual red light moving violations.

    Scott’s Answer

    Judges have to make that call--who is telling the truth. Without any evidence beyond the verbal testimony of each party, it's up to him to decide and there's really not much someone can do to get it overturned on the grounds that he made the wrong decision. That's a big part of what judges do in cases like this--"judge" the veracity of the testimony they hear.

  • I got a speeding ticket in 2010 and was dismissed and one in 2011 dismissed now I got one in 2012 can I plead any article?

    the recent ticket was 35 in a 20 no school zone and office used radar gun and jumped from behind the tree and made me slam on brakes so I didn't hit her.

    Scott’s Answer

    I wouldn't expect the circumstances to matter much. The focus will be on how she actually measured your speed in the first place. You should probably speak with a local attorney about defense if you are worried about a potential conviction.

  • I got a speeding ticket today for 67 in a 55. is this going to affect my parents insurance because im on it.

    how much is this going to cost my parents. and how many points will i get for a 67 in a 55

    Scott’s Answer

    It's a 2 point ticket in NJ. No one can every 100% predict what an insurance company will do but if this is the policy that covers the cars you drive and you are listed on the policy then certainly your driving violations can push the rates up
