Trying to get a ticket dismissed or reduced?

I was ticketed in Wisconsin for having an expired drivers license. I renewed my license the very next day. I am an Illinois resident. I have to write a letter to district attorney office

Ad

Dear District Attorney,

I received a ticket for driving with an expired license on (Date of Offense and ticket number). The very next day I renewed my license in the State of Illinois and have attached a copy of the renewed license. I am requesting leniency because it will cost for me to return to your area to go to court. Please consider the renewal of my license within 24 hours of a ticket as a form of restitution.

I want to send a plea of not guilty for parking in disabled space?

There is no specific marking on the parking lane suggesting it is reserved for disabled people. There is a pole with arrow mark pointing the reserved area.. I have tried: I got some pictures of the pole displaying reserved parking space. And I think only small part of my car might have crossed the pole. I think it was caused by: The instruction pole is a bit slanted and it is not clear as in where do the reserve space starts

List your findings in the letter along with the pictures. Make it very clear that you would never park in a spot designated for the disabled and that you were completely unaware that you were partly parked in the disabled space because it was not clearly defined.

I got a ticket for Veh Yield to Pedestrian?

I got a ticket for Veh Yield to Pedestrian which wasn't my fault. I saw my both side and there was a teenage who was standing to tree support and the traffic lady was standing and she was about to walk and her broad stop sign was also down.

Pedestrian laws vary but if you were speeding even slightly, driving distracted or not slowing down in a traffic crossing intersection, you can be charged with failure to yield. You can plead not guilty and hope for a reduction in the fine but it is most likely that you will be paying the fine unless the officer does not appear for the court date. Pedestrians are gaining more and more rights and laws change all the time. For instance in Ontario, a person has to completely clear the intersection before you can turn. Even if the are clear from the lane you are turning too or you have the green arrow or light, you still have to wait or you will receive a fine and ticket. So if the traffic lady's foot was off the curb you could be fined for not stopping. It does not matter that her stop sign was not up if she was still off the curb you have to yield.

Got a speeding ticket in Nov 2015... and forgot to take care of it?

Now, my fine has doubled. I am writing a letter to the judge, what are my options? I have tried: Called the court house. They asked me to write to the judge. I think it was caused by: I was driving at 86mph in a 70mph zone

Plead with the court to pay the initial fine. Send the payment of the initial with the plea letter. Most likely the court will accept the plea and fine payment. You can't plead for a reduce fine once the initial plea time frame is closed. Unfortunately because the fine was doubled, paying the initial fine in full is a savings.

How can I reduce the amount of the ticket?

I was going 66 on a 35 mph speed-zone at night with little to now cars got caught and was ticketed. Anyway can I reduce the fine and get it in payments or even possibly walk?

Usually, when you plead not guilty there is a high probability of a reduction in fines. Walking away free of any payment or points on your license is probably not going to happen with how fast you were speeding in a zone of 35 m.p.h. Those speeds are reserved for dangerous intersections or stretches of roads, residential areas, school zones and shopping areas with many entrances etc. The fact that it was in the middle of the night does not give you the right to speed and in fact, it could backfire on you if you say it was the middle of the night because accidents occur more often in reduced visibility which night falls under.

Wait for their response to your plea. If the fine is above your means then you can send another letter requesting a payment structure or another reduction. If you can plead financial hardship in the first letter with proof like food stamps accounts then they may offer a reduction easier.

I want to reduce or terminate my speeding citation?

I'm a college student with minimum hour job. Just enough to pay for my car, rent, and bills. I have my summer classes coming up so I need my money for books and to pay for my classes since I have no government help. What advice can you give me on dealing with this?. I have tried: I have only extended it because I couldn't come up with the money in a month.. I think it was caused by: I was following the speed of traffic on the fast lane (before carpool). I SAW the cop following me but I didn't want to be suspicious and slow down out of the blue. I was following the speed of traffic. He followed me I have to say for about 5min and pulled me over

Subject: Letter to a lawyer to reduce a ticket fine?

Hi, I have to write a letter to a lawyer to reduce my car ticket for using a phone. I was using the phone to look for directions and the phone was on my hand in front of my mouth for a voice command for directions for traffic. The cop saw me and gave a ticket. So, I was not making a phone call or texting, or engaged in a conversation. After going to court, I got a offer to write a letter explaining myself to reduce my reduction/amendment of my traffic charge. Would you be able to help with that? Here is my email to keep discussing it. Thanks!. I have tried: Nothing. I have no idea what to add to the letter,. I think it was caused by: I explained on previous window.

X3 tickets in a week SP30 before I knew?

3 tickets will = 9 points, over 8 points no conditional offer for fixed fine & points.
