Q: If a ticket is not signed by the officer nor the violator, is the ticket valid? The police officers badge number was on.
It was a computer print out ticket and it was also missing information on where to send your response and the court information.
A: To be frank, many clerical errors are permitted on traffic citations. Short of severe deficiencies in the ticket which call into question the officer's judgment or whether they had the right person cited, it is rare for a ticket to be so defective as to warrant dismissal. This is, in my opinion, unlikely to elicit such a response.
