Columbus, IN asked in Traffic Tickets for Indiana

Q: I received a traffic citation in Indiana for disregarding a traffic signal. The officer provided me a hand written

citation. The citation section for my name, vehicle description, date, and time were all left blank. The only info on the citation is a court date, the violation, and the officers name. Is this grounds for dismissal? I checked and it was filed I’m assuming he filled out the rest of the copy he kept.

A: If the officer left off your name, vehicle description, date & time, I think its quite possible the case will not get filed. You can check on to see if the citation does get filed, though not sure how without your name.
