What to do if my son was cited for “driving without decreasing speed as necessary to avoid colliding with a vehicle”?

The citation is not signed by my son (although a court date was assigned) and the address on the citation does not match the adress on his legal drivers license. What are the legal ramifications (favoring my son) in this circumstance? A later DWI charge hinges on this response.

Given the lack of specificity with respect to the citation that you have written about concerning your son, he should immediately consult with a criminal defense attorney to see what can be done to defend against the pending charges. One in your locality can be found on attorneypages.com.
