      Saikiran:- Sorry about your experience and i understand its unfortunate.

      I think the better way to get away is to pay the fine and you dont need a driver license to ride a bicycle. The responses to your questions are


      1. No
      2. No
      3. Not unless specified but refrain from applying to a drivers license until the case has been expunged.

      I would say its better to go by paying the fine or talk to the attorney during your court date or hire a attorney seeking legal advise.

        thanks a lot for u r reply .but let us consider
        if i have paid the fine and then go to apply for the divers license then they generally ask certain question like , now as the case is closed as i have paid the fine but still this is true that i was arrest and was taken to jail so what should i answer to the following questions .

        1.have u ever being arrest if yes then why ?
        2. have u ever being convicted of any crime ?
        3. have u been ever being to the jail?
        Thanks

          Saikiran,

          Being honest is the best thing

          1. Yes- reason
          2. No
          3. Yes- reason

          I dont remember filling a form going to the DMV office. Just provide the docs and proof of your status it should go through without hassles. You paid the fine, case is dismissed and expunged.

              Just pay the fine and clear it from your records to avoid further problems

                When you come to a new country you are supposed to know its law, not knowing about a law is never an excuse for a crime. As of now, just pay the fine and 6 months later try to expunge it from your record

                      When you fill your ds160 it will always ask for arrest or conviction records, when you go for stamping they will ask questions based on ds160. It is in your best interest to visit an attorney and see how the record can be taken away or handled. in any documentation employment related or not they will always ask you if you have been previously convicted or arrested.

                        One they have ur finger prints it's in their system, so you have to answer yes to that question on DS160 every time you fill out. My friend was arrested for DUI, but he got the case dismissed with help of lawyer and next he went back home for visa re stamping back home he answered no to that question, they rejected him as they found all his records in the system and said he was lying and told him to re-apply.

                              There are always signs posted at the entrance ramp to any freeway - no pedestrians no bicycles motor vehicles above 125 CC only. The rules are well defined and displayed. It is we who has to understand.
