Yes----quite often in matters involving accidents and damage to property, a ticket is issued based on the law enforcement officer's investigation, which does not include his witnessing any portion of the accident/collision.
I recently received a speeding ticket for going 70 in a 55. I did not know the speed limit, as I had just turned down the street, so I was following traffic.

I was issued a speeding ticket in Tangipahoa Parish. The trooper put the incorrect time, 1045 instead of 945, and also the wrong registration expiration year, 2021 instead of 2022. Am I able to contest the ticket as voidable for inaccurate information?
