Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. Is there a way to make a deal with the judge to get waived out of getting points from a speeding ticket?
A: Requesting a waiver hearing means that you're excusing the Officer from appearing in court and essentially pleading guilty with or without an explanation - but hoping your appearance (or that of an Attorney who can appear with or without you) will obtain a more favorable disposition than simply paying the ticket. If you pay the ticket, you've pled guilty, are found guilty and will receive the point(s) associated with the violation. By requesting a trial (or a waiver hearing) you at least preserve the right to address the judge and seek, if appropriate, Probation before Judgment, which is a special disposition in which the Judge withholds the guilty finding from your record and thus, because there is no "conviction," the MVA will assess no points against your record. PBJ is not automatic; it's imposition depends on several factors, including but not limited to the nature of the offense, your past driving record, whether you were polite and cooperative with the Officer, to name a few. An attorney can prove helpful in obtaining that result, particularly if your response to one or more of the factors listed above are not favorable.
Q. Hello .... I was involved in an accident I was at a stop light when light turned green I proceeded a guy turning left
A: The short answer is yes, you can fight the ticket. However, if the other party appears in court, the decision will ultimately be based on that parties word versus your word. However, if there was no personal injury it is quite possible unless the officer actually witnessed the accident, that the other party will fail to appear and the citation can be dismissed. You will need to retain an attorney to represent you in court or you will have to personally appear from out of state to do so yourself
Q. What happens if you miscarry after an accident?
A: If it is proving, to reasonable grief medical probability, that's your miscarriage was a result of the accident, you would be entitled to claim damages for any medical expenses related to that most unfortunate event, as well as compensation for conscious pain and suffering.
Q. Cited for 21-707 -Failure to Stop at Stop Sign Line, but Location of Offense listed is where officer pulled me over?
A: The citation should accurately list the location at which the violation occurred, and if evidence is presented that the location of the offense has no stop sign, it is conceivable, if you have a trial, that you could be acquitted due to a variance in the charging document and the evidence presented. The question is whether you want to hire an attorney to provide you with the best opportunity to contest the citation or "go it alone." Be forewarned that in Traffic Court, a judge could allow the Officer to amend the citation by identifying the correct location, if the Officer attempts to do so. A well qualified attorney would likely prevent that from happening.
Q. Is it legal or is there a fine for entering or driving in a road work zone, if you are not one of the workers?
A: While your post is a bit vague, it is possible an Officer could cite you for failing to obey a lawful traffic control device (yes, posted signed are deemed devices) or a comparable violation if you had no legitimate basis for driving in a "work zone." However, a response to your post could be more specific if you indicated whether you were actually cited for a violation - and what the violation or Transportation Article Code section was noted.
