Spelling error on proof of insurance - Ticketed

Hi Everyone

How easy would it be to beat a ticket for "failing to provide proof of insurance" for the simple reason of a street name misspelling on my proof of insurance? The street is a woman's name, ending in ie, but the insurance slip was spelled with a y. In my mind this is not a failure to profide proof of insurance. Taking the day off to fight a 65$ ticket seems silly on the surface, but it seems rediculous to me.

Thanks

If its as you say defiantly talk to the Crown. There must be more to the ticket than that - I can't I imagine a copper laying a charge for a spelling mistake.

Thanks Everyone... Thats what I figured. Within hours temporary (corrected) insurance slips were faxed and on their way in the mail, as well as a letter in hand from the insurance company.

I figured if it went before a judge, they would just toss it anyway... but what the heck do i know!

Cheers!
