Unlicensed Mexican driver's traffic charge dismissed
Hermino Gomez-Mendez, 61, of 111 West Concord St., Apt. 5, Boston had a charge of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle dismissed in Quincy District Court upon payment of $100 in court costs. He was found not responsible for a state highway traffic violation.
The charges stemmed from a Dec. 22, 2011 incident in Braintree at 5:55 p.m. when state police responded to a report of a two-car accident on Route 93 near Exit 7. Gomez-Mendez did not have a Massachusetts driver's license, and instead presented a Mexican ID card, police said.

Marcio C. Carvalho, 43, of 539 Park St., Stoughton, had charges of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and a marked lanes violation dismissed in Quincy District Court upon payment of $100 in court costs. The charges stemmed from a Jan. 27 incident in Braintree at 2:40 p.m. when police observed a Honda vehicle abruptly change lanes, nearly sideswiping a marked police cruiser.
