How much is a ticket for not yielding?

Every jurisdiction has their own 'price schedule' for various violations. The question is too vague to be answered here. I think this type of violation is usually cited as a result of an accident between two vehicles.

How illegal is it to switch license plates on a car that's not registered?

It's a federal law, and therefor it is a felony which can result in time in a federal prison.

Another View: (in the US) Actually it is a violation of state law, NOT federal law

AGREE: it is a state law violation. Normally this is considered a traffic criminal violation. What an officer may do with you when he pulls you over for this type of violation will depend upon several factors. This ranges from simply giving you a citation, for which a court appearance is required, to towing your car and confiscating the license plate and possibly take you to jail.

Do you have to sign a traffic citation?

It depends. Some places really do not care while in others they will take you to jail. By signing you are not admitting guilt, only that you have received the ticket and agree to show for court.

you don't get your liscense until your 16 and if your 16 or 17 then you wont have your learners permit anymore

Answer

Check the driving manual in your state. It should say what will happen. Some states will charge a fine. Some states will arrest you. Some will impound your car or make your parents come get you and the car. Some states will take away your learner's permit and not allow you to get it back until 18 or 21. You may get lucky and get out with a small fine, or you may have serious problems. Don't risk it.

How do you pay speeding ticket in Quebec?

The Government of Quebec uses the Bureau des Infractions et Amends (BIA) to process payment of fines and contesting tickets. If you would like to challenge a speeding ticket, you normally have 30 days to respond after receipt of the ticket.

If you reside outside of Quebec, you should note that provinces and states bordering Quebec have reciprocal agreements regarding the honouring of tickets and demerit points. Therefore, demerit points will be issued on your Ontario driver's license if you receive a ticket in Quebec and vice versa.

One should always confirm that a police radar gun was used and if it wasn't they should make sure the speedometer on the police car was recently calibrated.

If you do challenge the ticket, you should also take note that costs are added to the fine if you're convicted so it may be better to assess the value of the fine versus the costs of going to court.

Finally, one of the more often made mistakes of a motorist is to pay the fine before consulting a professional.

Can a valid Pa License be suspended in Maryland?

The state of Maryland can request to Pennsylvania that your licence be suspended - whether Pennsylvania would actually do this or not is a bit doubtful. However, the state of Maryland can - and will - suspend your driving privilege in that state, making it illegal for you to drive within the boundaries of that state until you have your privileges reinstated in the state of Maryland.

Can police officers drink in public off duty?

Probably because army officers are allowed when off duty, so police officers should be able to as well.

Added: As long as they don't do it in uniform, of course they can. They don't lose their civil rights simply because of their occupation. INTERESTINGLY - police officers are held to an even higher standard than the general public, because not only can they face the penalty of law if arrested for improper actions while intoxicated, most law enforcement agencies will discipline them or terminate their employment for "conduct unbecoming" as well.

What does a straight green arrow mean?

If you are referring to a green arrow pointing upwards at a traffic light then that is pretty much the same thing as a green light signalling for traffic to continue moving forward.

Traffic is allowed to move in the direction of the arrow. Commonly used to allow "protected" left turns at an intersection while the red ball prevents traffic from going straight across the intersection.

Can a friend legally represent you in traffic court?

No, but your lawyer might possible be able to do this. You see, you are the one with the traffic violation, so it is you who will be inconvenienced because of your traffic violation. That's all part of the learning process - once one sees what a pain it is to get time off from work, go to court and such, they will think twice before violating the laws again.
