Default Question for the L.E.Os about tickets.

If all info about vehicle on a ticket is wrong can I get ticket dismissed. The only info on the whole ticket that is right is my name address and DL#.

No......if the citation is incorrect, the Prosecutor can dismiss the original and the officer/deputy can refile the citation. Statute of limitations is 2 years for that. That's a technicality and rarely happens.

Just take Deferred Adjudication and it says off your record.

Well I'd say fight it if he messed up and was careless doing his job. Then again if you got caught doing something wrong, be a man and own up. My 2 cents. Anyway..take it for what it's worth, which would be half the price lol

It usually comes down to a cost benefit analysis. It may cost you more in time off from work to fight it than it's worth. Even if you win, you lose.

We are all human and make mistakes time to time. Call the phone number on the ticket and explain your situation. Worst case is they say no and you can decide to pay the fine or take it to court. My guess is there is video showing you and your vehicle making the violation.

I had one dismissed when my name was misspelled, and also had one stand when they put the wrong description of the vehicle.

I depends on the judge. The only time I ever fought one, the day of the trial, the judge pulled me to the side and asked what I was trying to accomplish. I told him keep it off my record. He told me to pay the clerk $50 bucks and my ticket would be dismissed. I paid. I figured he had a tee time and too many hearings that day.

I had a county attorney tell me always fight the ticket. If the officer doesn't show, you will win, if he does and you loose, appeal the conviction to they county appeals court. He said they never hear traffic tickets at that level and would throw out the conviction. Of course by the time your done, court cost would be more than the ticket.

You mentioned he didn't check your insurance. When they run your plate it automatically searches your insurance now day. They don't need to see your paper copy, unless its a new policy and not in the system yet. Some still ask to see if you carry it.

Not a new policy had it for years. I was kinda surprised when he put it on the ticket.
I passed him on the down side of the Baytown bridge while I passed two 18 wheelers going 45 or so . I got back over in the turn lane and exit the freeway.
I was just passing the trucks guess you can speed to pass either.
It is what it is . If it wasn't for the insurance part I would just pay it but now I gotta miss work to show proof of insurance

Not correct. Law still requires you to provide proof of financial responsibility. Paper copy or digital on your phone are accepted, but you are still required to provide proof.

In some cases, computer in patrol car cannot confirm coverage.

The last couple of times when I was stopped, they didn't ask for it. When I volunteered, they said they had it. That was Houston, DPS, and George West. I think more and more departments are starting to utilize the system to save time. As I said, you are required to show proof if it is requested. Of course none of them gave me a ticket.

All that an officer can do is make an accusation. If a judge or a prosecutor wishes to dismiss a charge then there is nothing an officer can do about it.

Having a wrong vehicle on a citation does not negate the traffic charge. If an officer watches you run a stop sign and issues a citation, he isn't writing you a citation for driving a red Ford or a blue Chevy. He is writing the citation for the stop sign. An officer may have a video of the actual offense. The traffic stop and likely the person signing the citation also be on video orbrecorded on the citation if it is electronic. So now we may have a video of the traffic charge, a video or photograph of the person driving at the time and then a signing of the citation to prove that he was given the information. If I judge or prosecutor can watch a person run a stop sign on video, then have proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the person in court is in fact the person that ran it and he wishes to dismiss citation because the officer wrote green instead of blue or black on the citation, then he can do so within his authority.

The point is that the vehicle is not the crime. The action is the crime. If it was some kind of possession crime then the vehicle or whatever the item was would be important. In this case whether a motorcycle, a pickup or a passenger vehicle does not matter. The color does not matter. Those are simply statistics put on a citation that have nothing to do with the incident. But again, if I judge or prosecutor wishes to not be bothered with taking the case to court then the charge can be dismissed with the officer having no say-so in the matter.

Roll the dice and see what happens.

I am reading this as you meant to type "guess you can't speed to pass either".

I have been driving for a while, and have never seen any speed limit sign that said "Except to Pass" under the number for the speed limit. You were wrong! Pay the ticket or take Defensive Driving and move on! How in the world could you be mad because you have to show proof of ins for them to kick that out. If you would have had proof of ins in your car like is required by law, you would not have to do this.

No, you are mad because you have to take off work to show proof of insurance when the law says you were supposed to have that proof in your car to begin with, and you did not have it! If you show proof of insurance, then they dismiss that part of the ticket. If you don't want to do that, then just pay for both infractions.

So, are they just supposed to take your word for it that you do indeed have insurance???

You should be mad at yourself for not having your insurance card in the car, not mad at them because you have to go down and show proof!!!!

It's up to whatever Judge you get, JP, Municipal or whatever.

I've had two traffic tickets dismissed in my lifetime and both were because the tickets were not filled out properly.

I would contact the office of the Judge you are supposed to appear before and let them know that the information on the traffic ticket is incorrect and see what they say.

I generally will try to run a vehicle tag before I light them up so I know before the stop if the vehicle has a "hit" for a warrant for someone associated with that vehicle.
In doing so, I can often (but not always) determine if the vehicle has current coverage. If it does, then I don't generally ask the driver for proof since I already have it.
Insurance companies are required to upload their information to the state every Friday. So if you buy a policy on Monday and I stop you on Tuesday, my computer may not be able to confirm coverage. If you have the proof of insurance card with you - you're good to go, regardless of the status displayed on my computer.

Man I didn't know I was the only one on here that ever went over the speed limit.
Guess arguing is how some of y'all pass the day.

No arguing here!

Do you really believe that he stopped you, and wrote you tickets, and never ran your license plate?????

And you are not the only one to go over the speed limit or not have proof of insurance in your car, just one of the many nowadays who get caught, and then want to whine on the internet about how much it inconveniences you to take care of it!

Sorry, that's how I see it.

Bye,

Bisch
