A: I don't think you are in Kansas any more, Toto. This is sooo strange. If the ticket is written for a different person, it could be that the police officer handed you the wrong copy. You need to check with the court to see if you are scheduled for an appearance on a traffic ticket and go to court to defend yourself. At arraignment, it might be a good idea to ask the Court to dismiss the ticket based on errors on the face of the ticket. You can always contact a local attorney that specializes in defense of traffic tickets. Thanks for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
