I recently received a speeding ticket (73 in a 55) in Texas. I didn't realize the speed had changed, but that is neither here nor there. The offense occurred on 2-27-2016; however, the officer listed the date on the ticket as 3-27-2016. I called the courts and they said that they could amend it and send me a new copy.
When an officer signs a ticket, he is saying that all information is correct; but if one piece of information, namely the date (an important fact) is incorrect, then I think there is reason to believe the rest could be incorrect as well.
Is this grounds for dismissal? Is this legal? Should I just pay the ticket because I would lose fighting it in court?
