Salem, OR asked in Traffic Tickets for Oregon

Q: Could I possibly get my citation for speeding dismissed if information on the citation is wrong? (car model, make, year)

I received a citation for speeding. The officer put on the citation that I was driving a 1984 Volvo 240, when I was driving a 1996 Honda Accord. Also the last digit of my license plate is wrong on the citation. Also the officer said I was going 85 MPH in a 65 MPH zone which is 11-20 MPH over the speed limit and wrote on the citation that I was going 90 MPH and that I was going 21-30 MPH over the speed limit.

A: It would still be worth fighting, mostly over the amount over, but don't hold your breath that the judge will dismiss just on the other errors.
