Omaha, NE asked in Traffic Tickets for Nebraska

Q: Can a cop give a citation for expired tags twice within 2 days of each other?

Got pulled over for expired tags & got a citation two days ago.They pulled over my mom in my car 2 days later for same thing but gave her a citation even though she is not the owner of the car and I had just gotten a citation 72 hours prior. They said I had 10 days to get it taken care of. Was it legal for them to give a citation for the same exact thing to someone who wasn't the owner of the car? Also a cherry on top, Spanish is her primary language and there was no translator provided so she didn't understand everything they were saying. Some more details: it was different cops in different counties within Nebraska.

A: Can they give the citation? Yes. If you get your tags updated and show such to law enforcement, can you likely get one or both charges reduced or dropped, probably.
