  • Question about speeding tickets

    I got a speeding ticket the other day, but on the ticket he wrote my car as a Mits. I drive a dodge. I heard this may get your ticket dismissed....is it true?

    Sorry, but no "Kings X" here,

    You can raise the issue, but the only thing that will happen is that the citation will be amended to reflect the correct vehicle.

        As long as location, time and date, tag number and all your personal information is correct you get to pay the ticket.

          Just wondered, it's what I have heard.

          "Errors matter. While courts will often excuse minor errors on a ticket -- a misspelled name, a quibble over whether your Jag is ochre or orange -- if the officer cites the wrong statute on the ticket, or grossly misidentifies the highway or your make of car, you may to get your ticket dismissed"

          I'd have to pay the ticket/included court costs either way, but it was worth a shot if it would stay off my record.

            Even if the wrong statute is cited it can be ammended in court. As far as personal or vehicle information goes, when you sign the ticket you are verifying that the information on the ticket is in fact correct including the vehicle information so that argument goes out the window.

                Stranger things have happened, but a minor error by the officer is not a "sure thing" dismissal. So much depends on the judge and the policy of the court. I'd agree with the others here that it's more likely that the citation would be amended to reflect the correct make of vehicle. Besides, aren't some Mitsubishis and Dodges the same car with a different badge?

                It would be really refreshing to see someone who decided to take responsibility for what they had done, rather than look for a way to avoid the consequences.

                  It's both. At least in VA. Your signature verifies that the information that you provided is accurate and correct and that you will appear in court or take care of the ticket in advance.

                    I know that some Mitsubishi parts are compatible with Dodges. My brother's Avenger is full of Mitsubishi parts and my friend's Caravan has a Mitsubishi engine.

                    In some places in Canada you can fight a ticket if they have the wrong car (it sounds like your traffic courts in the US are rather strict). Sounds like you're SOL here though.

                      why not issue traffic tickets that do not need to be signed by the violator? NY has done this for years

                      they know what will happen if they do not show up in court--- or do they? lol.

                        Just so you know, I don't believe I was speeding. I have had one other ticket in my life, and I paid it with no complaint. I knew what I was doing.

                          And about Mits. and dodges. They do have alot of the same parts, mostly under the hood. But an eclipse and a stratus do not look much alike, at all.

                            one question, if you dont believe you were speeding and if you have a valid arguement, then why are you searching for a loop hole to get you off. ??

                              If we have to physically take your license here, you sign a slip on the spot that serves as a DL for 30 days, in which time you go to court. If you do not show up, the courts take them for a min. of 30 days , up to an indef. suspension.

                              Generally, if you show, the court wants us to offer you a reduced charge...say you were clocked doing 85 in a 70 zone...that would cost you around 2 pts. on your record and around $155.00 + $100.00 court fee, so they ask if you would plead guilty to 75...which gets you 0 pts. and only the $155.00 and no court fee.
