Inquiry:  I was pulled over today for apparently speeding in a “playground zone”.  However after informing the officer i thought it was a school zone (school is not in session) he told me otherwise, playground zone. The zone was previously a school zone and had been changed within the year. The officer then went on to write me a ticket for “speeding in a school zone”. Can this error be used in court? The officer also never wrote my speed on the ticket. Is that neccessary?

Response:  We or another legal representative would need to look at your offence notice in more detail before being able to give you specific feedback on the issues.  However, from the area code provided by you it appears that you are in Alabama which is an area that we are unable to service.  You may wish to seek out local legal representation to provide you with more feedback on your matter.
