Sorry to hear about your bad experience. If the ticket is for 30+ over the limit then it should be non-payable and require a mandatory court appearance. I would not suggest going on your own, though - that never seems to end very well. If you hire an attorney then we can appear on your behalf and will be able to speak with the officer prior to going in front of the Judge so that we can try and negotiate the best possible resolution for your citation. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any additional questions.See question
Got a ticket in my personal vehicle just over a year ago for failure to obey traffic signal on 4/2016 and resulted that I got into an accident with no injuries (Paid fine). The reason why I want to know if the accident can be taken off my record i...
It's probably too late to get the accident removed from your record (the only way I know to do that is to get a "Not Guilty" verdict after hearing, which won't be an option at this stage), but if the points from the ticket are giving you problems with employment, as well, then there's a chance that we may be able to get those reversed. Not sure if that will help you or not but figured I'd mention it just in case. Best of luck and please let me know if you have any additional questions.See question

Can her name be put on the citation so that it is not on my record.
Is it a Red Light Camera citation? If so, I've had some success in the past at getting those amended from the registered owner to the actual driver. You're supposed to fix any inconsistencies during the "notice of violation" period so it isn't guaranteed at this point, but some of the Judges understand that not everyone receives the "notice" like they're supposed to. Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.See question

Have the cases been sent to collections? If so, you only have two real options for how to resolve and there are pluses and minuses with each option. 1) You can pay the full amount owed to the Clerk and the collections company and then pay to reinstate your DL. This is the fastest way to get your license back but it comes with the cost of paying a lot of money to the State and, more importantly, you will be adjudicated guilty of the two offenses. Red Light Camera tickets don't carry points like normal tickets but, when you are convicted, the insurance companies can still use them to increase your rates based on "unsafe driving practices". The second option is to hire a lawyer to file a Motion on your behalf, where we ask to reopen the case and remove all of the additional fees/suspensions/etc. This takes a little more time but is definitely the preferred route to leave you in the best position moving forward.

I was cited twice and was given a court date. Usually you have the option of paying the fine or setting a court date. I was cited and assigned a court date.
It all depends on what the citations are for. There are citations that are payable and others that require mandatory court appearance. Please provide more information so we can give good advice. Thank you.See question
Can I expect jail time
Way too much advice to write it all out here, but I agree that hiring a local attorney will help you tremendously. Make sure you act quickly so there's plenty of time within the 10 day deadline on the administrative side. Best of luck with your case and please let me know if you have any other questions.See question
I was issued a red light camera ticket back in May 2016 but I had no knowledge of it until a couple of weeks ago when Penn Credit sent me a letter demanding I pay $380.00 for the ticket. I had no knowledge of this ticket, as I have never received ...
1) Unfortunately, any speedy trial argument will most likely be denied based on your failure to respond to the citation within the allotted time period (I understand you didn't receive the ticket until this year but there is a presumption that you received the Notice after it was sent and you have a duty to keep all address up to date so the Judge will probably rule for the State if you made that Motion).
2) They may have archived the video but it's difficult to say without looking at it/speaking with the department.
All of that being said, there is still a lot of good that an attorney can do for you. Even if we're not able to get an actual hearing date for you to challenge the facts of the ticket, we are often able to get the fines reduced significantly and, more importantly, adjudication withheld, which would prevent your insurance company from using the ticket to increase your rates (there aren't any points with Red Light Camera tickets but I've heard of insurance companies using them to demonstrate "unsafe driving practices" when the person receives an adjudication of guilt, which will happen if you just pay the ticket). I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any additional questions.See question
I was in an accident and found out my license was suspended for failure to pay tickets. The officer was very upset at me and yelled several times I had 10 days to make a mandatory court appearance or he would issue a warrant for my arrest. This wa...
It sounds like you may have been issued one civil citation (most likely Careless Driving) and one criminal citation (Driving While License Suspended "with knowledge")? If that is correct and your case is in Hillsborough County (Ruskin is) then the confusion probably comes from the officer giving you dated information about the Clerk's process for setting court dates. The old policy required all defendants with criminal traffic violations to set a court date within 10 days from the date of ticket and failure to do so triggered a warrant being issued. The Clerk stopped doing it that way a few years ago and the system now sets a court date on its own. I hear about a lot of officers giving the old information so I'm guessing this is the situation here, but you should definitely contact an attorney so they can look into this and give you firm advice. Happy to help if I can.See question
