Denton, TX asked in Traffic Tickets for Texas

Q: Can I get a ticket dismissed if the officer knowingly lied about posted speed limit on my ticket?

I was in a 70mph zone, clocked in a 70mph zone and stopped just before the 65mph sign but he wrote me a ticket as if I was in the 65mph zone. He falsified a document.

A: The first question is what is the alleged location in question. Next, the zoning of that location must be checked. Whether the officer lied or not is a question of fact which is what trials are for; the officer has the right to appear in court to testify just like you do and she/he may claim YOU are the one who is mistaken or lying. Good luck
