Fighting speeding ticket in court by Martin Bottingmuck - Thu, 13 Oct 2016 23:18:02 EST ID:6Lf5Wrmr No.45560 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

What's up /law/. I got a speeding ticket back in July and instead of paying the fine and all that bullshit I figured I should have my day in court. The pig caught me at 1 am on a nearly empty road while hiding under a bridge, and he felt very smug handing me the ticket and saying it could be doubled since construction workers were present. I literally didn't see them and when he pointed them out they were on TOP of the bridge I was driving under. Plus it was 1 am so how would I know they were working.

I've done some research on fighting the ticket and I have a chance if I can prove that I was driving safely under the road conditions even if i was speeding. I think I have enough evidence for this. I wont argue that I wasn't speeding because I probably was, but not by much. Anyway, since I think I have a shot should I represent myself, or get a traffic lawyer? Will a lawyer get me off easily, and are they expensive? Court is 2 weeks from now, but I will try to push it back as far as I can to waste the officer's time so he doesn't show up and I get off even easier.

Officers do not show up for basic speeding tickets. Plain and simple.

Double fines are often imposed for roadwork present. No matter if workers are even present. Just that these are construction zones. Were work is often done around the clock.

Surely there were no signs whatsoever coming up to this, right?
Just a guess, maybe a $120 fine, 3 points lost. Points replenished after a year?

live in PA. Got a speeding ticket on the 26th of last month, today is the 6th so it has been 10 days and I haven't responded to the citation summons yet. Tried to use the online citation Am I gonna get a bench warrant put out for me? I really wanna keep my record as clean as possible. If a warrant does get put out for me, how fucked am I? Will it significantly impact future job prospects?

as for how I am going to deal with this, I will head to the courthouse first thing tomorrow morning and hope I can get a plea submitted before the warrant goes out. How good are my chances of saving my skin, /law/?

never mind looks like I'm gonna be OK, the citation wasn't filed until the 29th
NB since I'm not wiggin' anymore
would it be a smart move to plead not guilty? Ticket came with 3 points on my license, do I have a decent chance of getting a more lenient penalty if I go through the effort to schedule a court date? for reference, I got clocked doing 60 in a 40 zone, but they were using vascar and it was most likely less than that (by how much I dont know, 60 would be flying on that road and I remember the usual traffic -- dont see how I could have gotten over 50). Perhaps in acknowledgement of the margin of error of his speed calculation, the officer ticketed me for doing 10 over the posted 40mph limit. He actually got me on the same road a couple months back on my way home at night doing what I will admit was 60 in a 40 zone, and gave me a ticket for going 5 over the posted 45. He wrote on the ticket that I was doing 60 in a 40, though, and I'm worried that fighting the ticket will be difficult if I have to actually argue the case to a judge. How good is the chance the officer just won't show up?

Lawless people. You will not have a warrant put out for you, Pleading not guilty will accomplish nothing. The officer will not show up regardless of anything, this would not change anything whatsoever anyway if he/she did or did not.

If the citation does not require a mandatory court appearance pay the fine asap. or you will be subjected to more points taken from you. Read it. Should be basically the same across the board in the US.

Pay fine or appear at a hearing, 2 maybe three choices, guilty, not guilt,

'no contest' may be allowed but changes nothing.

The court would not accept a not guilty plea. It is not a jail-able offense.

Sounds like you got cut some slack regardless what the officer wrote aside from what could have been the outcome of points taken.
Best possible outcome of appearing it taling with the DA and get one point taken off at best. Read you ticket carefully.

On the other hand going to court could have still have had to pay fine, but less points taken. Guess depends which wa7 the wind blows. Whatever.

I made a $100 bet in a pool game, I should have really been at home anyway but was wored on my way home. A most almost impossible shot that have got me free drinks where people say if you make this I'll buy whatever you want. Needless to say I missed. I guess the person would not have taken the money if I asked or sniveled, whined, explained my inability to have really thought things through. but he kinda acted like you made the bet so0, I just gave it to him. Bad timing to lose that money to top it off.

Those and really human rights were the main objectives were and are the focus to bypass. War crimes. whatever. Look at Iraq, we lied to the UN, we voted to not be bound by 'any' rules of conduct of human rights.

Recently voted for ability to bring Saudi Arabia to account it's 'possible' role for
victims and remedies for their roles, if any.

Then very shortly after reconsideration of this measure realization of the repercussions that may follow. In other words, the 9/11 victims, were never a realistic consideration because our intentions were not about the victims to begin with. Let alone ability to bring them to an international court let alone to US federal courts would have been impossible, let alone our partnership with our so-called allies, (Saudi Arabia) would be strained as well as just making a massive disaster like at a mass scale of foreign diplomatic relations.

We have more reason to be have held accountable for our actions than
like any nation on the planet. We voted strongly to enjoy immunity for
our actions, terrorism was a method of accomplishing this.

So we wanted to Saudi Arabia for it's 'possible' role in 9/11, yet will not extradite
detainees and the disappeared to US federal courts to stand for their crimes.
Yet somehow wanted to hold Saudis for their 'possible roles of 9/11 in federal courts on US soil. How I see this id recklessly rolled out?

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

I'm going in for an interview soon for a job working for a local city in WI. I'm not sure yet if they're requiring a drug test. I haven't smoked for about a week and I usually smoked regularly ~3 times a week, so I'm not sure how I'd fare yet. But anyway, because this job is technically with local government, what happens if I fail the drug test? Is it filed away somewhere? Is it a "oh well, can't hire you, sorry" and part ways? What exactly can happen? Any input is appreciated, thanks!

Yea you likely would not be tested on the spot. It would at least be recorded locally if another part of local government inquired about another employment position in local government.

Just don't smoke until you know. A week even without smoking, don't even worry.

I was recently contacted via email from my employer stating "You were scheduled to report for work on 9/24/16 at 10:30 am as described below. You did not show up for your scheduled shift and failed to notify me of your absence. I attempted to contact you via telephone today 9/24/16 at 2:42 pm regarding your absence. Please be advised that your absence from work was without notice and unauthorized. Your employment status with (Company) may be in jeopardy. You must respond to me via telephone or email within 24 hours of the date and time of this email to address your failure to report to work and communicate accordingly and to confirm your future work availability. Please know that if I have not heard from you by the deadline above, your employment will be separated due to Job Abandonment which is deemed a voluntary resignation per (Company) Attendance Policy. Should you have any other questions or concerns promptly contact Human Resources"

My question is regarding the language of Voluntary Resignation and if that is simply a fancy term for Fired or Terminated or is it stating that I personally quit my employment of my own willingness. The reason I ask is because I did not respond to the email within the time frame and due to my states rules on firing I am to be compensated by the next business day if I am fired.

Look as far as the wording goes, it seems like they crafted it specifically to avoid having to suddenly pay out when someone stops showing up.

>Oh you weren't fired, you chose to voluntarily resign. See? It's right here in your employment contract.

Depends how that jives with state law though, and if you have the horses to challenge them if it's even possible.

Start looking for a new job, I don't think you're getting payed in the next day or two. Which date did they officially 'resign' you on?

since when does it matter what circumstances led to your discontinuation of employment with a company? i am pretty sure companies are legally obligated to compensate you for services provided to the company up until the second you no longer work there. even if you were only clocked for like 2 hours of the pay period, as a random example, they still gotta pay you for the 2 hours

or have i been wrong all along?

That's not at issue. OP claimed his state (So I assume he's in the U.S.) mandated that he be paid the very day following his termination, rather than at the end of the pay-period. Which seemed pretty petty, but I assumed he was in some kind of bind. I've never heard of such a thing though, seems pretty ridiculous

Given the glacial pace of this board. I'd bet OP's already been paid by now anyway and the thread can just die.

Depends on your state, I know in Texas, and probably most at will states job abandonment/ no call no shows are considered voluntary resignation/termination or quitting, and makes you ineligible for most termination rights and unemployment benefits.

If you were flat our fired. Flinstone your fired. Then if that i the law then I guess it could stand. You should have contacted them if you wanted to keep your job.
You failed to show up and or respond, so it was on your part you resigned.

Now if you were fired like came to work intoxicated and screwed up, a liability,
then you could be fired.

I have willfully resigned every job I ever lost I believe by not showing up, by at least calling in with an excuse before during or after. Expect you paycheck on
the regular pay date.

Could really use some help making sense of this lease addendum for my apartment and my specific situation.

TLR - Leasing company's dicking me over and wasting my time with something I don't think I really need.

So I'm trying to get my name taken off my apartment lease so that my two roommates can continue living in the apartment while I move into one of my own at a different location. I was told that if I didn't fill out a tenant release addendum, I was going to be held liable for any further leases my roommates sign for the apartment. Worse yet, they're charging me $100 for a release fee.

According to the addendum, it's set up with the expectation that I'm trying to get out of my lease early, but as of today, I have paid the rent for my 12th month of my 12-month lease. I'm not trying to move out early, simply move out at the very end of the month.

To make everything worse, my property management staff has been incredibly incompetent about the whole process. I first asked about this nearly two weeks ago. I've been down to their office three times myself, and my roommates twice to sign a two page document. This last visit ended up with them losing my original copy of the addendum we all signed, as well as my signed check.

My move from my last apartment to the one I'm currently in wasn't even remotely as frustrating as this whole process has been.

What I really want to know is if a tenant release addendum is what I really need. My roommates intend to sign their own lease on their own credit at the end of the month so they can stay in the same apartment, but I just want to go my own way and the lease we signed for 12 months.

At the very least, could I raise hell about their bullshit and get the release fee waived?

Well I found my copy of the lease. Says there is an automatic renewal on a month-to-month basis if we don't notify them 30 days prior that we intend to terminate the lease at the end date. It doesn't say anything about a release fee in the lease itself though. Just in the addendum.

Here's the fucking kicker though. This morning while I was at work, I got a text from my bank notifying me that the $100 check I had wrote them and they had lost had been withdrawn from my bank account. They didn't even bother to notify me that they found it or anything.

I can see how I owe the $100 considering neither me or my roommates have given them written notification that we're intending to terminate our lease, so we've lapsed into the month-to-month basis already and since I'm still on the lease, I have to pay this release fee they're asking for.

They've just been so incompetent and sketchy about the whole fucking process.

Well if the renewal is automatic if no notice if given and it had lapsed into another month then,, If it is stated there is a release fee if no notice is given then I guess. I have seen this as commonplace.

I have known many landlords. Some were speed heads but sensible when it came to tenants rights. If you really think you are getting the shaft then look into you local tenants rights authority.

Reality is if you are on an automatic month to month recurring lease, and did not give what may be considered reasonable notice then you seem to fit in with what the contract states. While they seem to have charged you for the release, then the release should actually be standing and active.

You should get a statement of the release since you have been charged the fee release agreement.

I am no attorney but have rented with 6 month yearly leases, dodged landlords by default not paying rent, did midnight moves. Had associates take companies to court when they terminated their tenants leases and lost their property and prevailed with relative ease. Seen scumbag redneck landlords that
if they didn't have the landlord job they could not hold a job, where they screw people over and should in reality have their reality checked for them.

Watch those leases. Most are not extremely complicated. End lease before agreed upon, pay a fee
for terminating conditions of a lease. Just make sure your lease is actually terminated as they charged you for it. Get documentation of this, surely they can accommodate you with this.

My friends dad (mid 60s) and a local bar manager (married, but not to him) died in a boating accident in the ocean. He was more or less crippled in one leg and several people refused to go fishing with him because of it.

They were reported missing,and after a C.c. search they were both found dead.

The husband is now trying to sue my friend (manager of the estate) for a million dollars, which they don't have, for wrongful death.

The major hitch is that the lawyer representing the woman was already employed by the manager of the estates wife on another case. They will no longer return her calls or email.

What would your next step be? Counter suit against woman's family for luring the old man out, filing conflict of interest report, or both. All advice is appreciated.

>The husband is now trying to sue my friend (manager of the estate) for a million dollars, which they don't have, for wrongful death.
The husband is suing the estate, not the manager/trustee of the estate. The trustee of the estate is ultimately responsible for responding to the suit and if there are other stakeholders for the estate they can sue HIM if he doesn't fulfill his legal obligations.

>The major hitch is that the lawyer representing the woman was already employed by the manager of the estates wife on another case.
Is the other case related or on-going? If not, that's irrelevant.

>What would your next step be?
Consulting with a qualified attorney who can assess the wrongful death claim and explain what it would take to fight the suit. If there's more than a few thousand dollars at stake, that's a no-brainer.

so i haven't paid my rent for this month. i work in construction and my office sent me home a bunch of days this month because there was no work. It took me a while, but I found another job last Thursday, the problem is that I don't start until this upcoming Friday.
I spent all weekend selling everything I own, except for my laptop (which I'm pawning later today) and my truck, which I plan on selling later today as well (I have a buyer lined up for it), in an effort to cover the rent and fees before the hearing.

I received a summons last week, and my hearing is in three hours.

Am I fucked? What should I do? I'll be able to pay the rent and the fees at the end of the week, but I'm afraid the judge is gonna be just like "fuck it" and give an OK to have me out of there.

tl;dr, eviction hearing today, but I'm able to pay what I owe at the end of the week, what should I say/do?

So someone backed up into my car the other day. It was the other person's fault. I was insured but didn't have my insurance information with me at the time, so didn't want to call the cops and risk getting arrested for driving without insurance. We do exchange information and I have a picture of her insurance. I called her insurance company who inform me that the policy had been cancelled. Great. I call the other driver and tell her this and she acts surprised, claiming she made a payment last month and she will check it out.

Now what do I do. She lives in my apartment complex which is where the accident happened. Would it make sense for me to call the cops and have them take statements from both me and her and file a report, or am I wasting my time and the best thing I can do now is hope she pays?

Take the steps. See if you can get a police report, see if the insurer will accept it, and try to submit a UM claim. It's almost certainly going to get denied coverage, but it's worth a shot and odds only get worse.

Most likely you have to go after her on your dollar.

Hit and run may be a start. It is what it is.

this would likely be a civil suit where youd have to sue them for damages.

the burden of proof is much lower, not resonable doubt but perponderance of evidence. the fact you have he id, and insurance a a credible story likely means you would win.

text her asking whats up. texts are great evidence.

wouldnt hurt to try. im my exp tho cops dont do a damn thing.

even when I caught some faggots breaking my car windshield in a parking lot, called the cops, gave them accurate descriptions with video. Found the ass holes an hour later. And did absolutely nothing cept ask if they did it, no? okay free to go. fuck the police. Take matters into your own hands.

Stole a man's beer, get kicked out of the bar. Then the man i stole beer from pushed me down stairs but I kept my balance. Then he pushed me inside the bar. So I grab a bottle and I'm gonna swing it at his head but instead I fall to the floor where he tries to kick my head and neck. He gets a few light hits on me.

Anyway the police came and i just tell them what happened but they say the witnesses say i didn't get attacked. But I tell them I'm not lying, they tell me to tell it to the judge.

What I'm worried about is that I'm going to be thrown in a court where nobody will believe me, they can't do that can they? They can't force me to sue him or something like that?

If witnesses are against you then you should seek video evidence.

See if you can get your lawyer to get it.

Somewhat standard fare. You were not arrested? yes/no? Just keep it cool.

Disorderly conduct it seems. Surely not arrested for assault, right?

Talk with DA, 'District Attorney' before court.
A DA is simply an attorney. Just a prosecuting
Attorney. As in Defense, VS. Prosecution.

If explained I would say whatever fine.
Some may disagree but talk with the
DA, as a paid attorney may. $5 bucks,
you got assaulted it seems.

No realistic DA would really want
