Inquiry: I just received a speeding ticket, and the officer has written on the ticket that the incident took place “at or near” a road that is in fact nowhere “near” where the actual occurrence took place. Is this error possible grounds for dismissal? Does it not throw into question the officers judgement or ability to observe the facts?
Response: While we definitely do need to know about any errors on a ticket, this is one that almost certainly will not be a fatal error for the Prosecutor’s case. However, aside from the location issue, we can generally have most speeding charges either reduced or where possible thrown out. If you would like for us to review your case in more detail, we offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
