Charlotte, NC asked in Traffic Tickets for North Carolina

Q: I got a speeding ticket and all my personal information is wrong.

I got a speeding ticket going “70”mph in a 55mph zone and all the personal information is my mother’s, including DL number, age, birthday, social security number, etc despite him having MY license. It says my mother is the one being charged and that she would need to appear in court, when I was the one driving nor was she even in the car. The car is registered in her name but I pay the insurance and my name is also on the insurance. The officer also said he was going to “round up my speed“ to 70mph when i was only going 65, and also put that there was rain on my windshield and that it was raining when both of those claims are false. Are these mistakes that could get my ticket dismissed or what is the best way to attack this?

A: Of course they aren't grounds for dismissal and it is pointless to 'attack' a ticket. Hire the cheapest local traffic ticket attorney you can find and don't speed anymore.
