Many drivers who receive a traffic or speeding ticket in Georgia find that there are mistakes on the ticket. They are curious as to whether or not a mistake on the ticket itself is a reason to dismiss or reduce the ticket GA speeding or traffic ticket in court. Mistakes on tickets can include:
- Name spelled incorrectly
- Hair color, eye color, weight or height is wrong (for whatever reason)
- The vehicle model, color, or year is wrong.
- Date of birth is not legible but all other information is correct
- The road conditions as noted on the ticket are incorrect
- Driver’s license number is off by one number
If your Georgia traffic citation has any of the errors listed above you probably are NOT going to be able to get out of paying the ticket due to the mistake. Georgia’s traffic courts and highway patrol officers consider a moving violation a VERY serious offense, in Georgia, all moving traffic violations are criminal misdemeanors. Thus, if the ticket has your name, vehicle information, license, and date of birth correct there isn’t enough wrong to make the ticket and fine go away.
If there is an error on your ticket such as incorrect registration information/number, the driver’s license number is totally different than yours and there are serious discrepancies in that information, then you might be able to get the ticket reduced, or dismissed as a result of these errors.
