hi, thanks for responding...still a little confused, hope you can clarify...
I was stopped for speeding and issued a ticket, however I did not remove my helmet during the whole time I was pulled over...
I wasn't trying to be difficult or impolite, it just didn't occur to me at the time to take off my helmet...and the officer never asked me to take it off.
now I'm not sure what proper procedures an officer has to follow, in order to issue a ticket.
so just wondering, does an officer have to identify the rider/driver is the same person as the photograph in the driver's license in order to issue a ticket?
(and of course, my driver's license does have my photo
you had mentioned that "If the officer is satisfied that the driver and the photograph are the same person, there's no need to remove the helmet.."
but, I'm wondering how would they be 'satisfied' that the rider and the photograph are the same person, if I never removed my helmet?
thanks again for responding, hope you can clarify...court date is coming soon and I just want to know if it'd be possible that the ticket would dropped on such a technicality.
