Asked in Traffic Tickets for Washington

Q: Police officer pulled us over and gave us 2 tickets, did he invalidate them accidentally?

Police officer pulled us over and gave us 2 tickets, one said going 55 in a 40, and the other said going 65 in a 50. The one that says 65 im a 50 was a ticket for driving without id on hand(forgot it at home) and he also put that as a moving violation but under WA law its a nonmoving. But one ticket was speeding the other was without id on hand but he put 2 different speeds and he put the wrong type of violation. If i fight this did he invalidate his own tickets by putting down wrong information?

A: It is really hard to give answers without seeing the actual documents. But the short version is "maybe." You should consult with an experienced traffic lawyer; most offer a free consultation. You are also more likely to have a successful outcome by retaining one to represent you.

Did you mean that you did not have your license with you? A NOVOL is still a traffic violation.
