Asked in Traffic Tickets for Oklahoma

Q: If my traffic ticket dose not have my full name on it just has my middle initial on it is it still a full on ticket?

The ticket even says full name ( last name, first name,middle name) is it something I can get dismissed or should I get a lawyer and fight my case in court

A: Yes, a traffic ticket is usually still considered valid even if it only contains your middle initial rather than your full middle name. The important part is if the ticket accurately identifies you, which can be through a combination of other personal information such as your full first and last name, your address, or your driver's license number. While it might be seen as a clerical error, it's not typically grounds for outright dismissal.
