Virginia, MN asked in Traffic Tickets for Minnesota

Q: If I received a ticket from a state trooper and the trooper didn’t put his Trooper/CVI Name on the citation and only put

His badge number on the citation could I try to go to court and have this citation dismissed? This was a citation for expired tabs

A: No. That is not a basis to get the citation dismissed. There may be other issues going on that could help, but this won’t be one of them.

A: I would always go to court on a traffic ticket to attempt to improve the situation. Why not? That particular issue (Trooper name not on citation) would almost certainly not matter at all. But there could be other, better issues.
