Hey there, first post. Received a ticket this morning for 60 in a 50 as per the police officer. They had clocked me with LIDAR and was hiding behind a pole at 69 kmh. The officer provided me the ticket and it looks like they might have made a mistake so that the 60 in a 50 looks like 60 in a 60. Question: Could this be considered ambiguous by the judge?

Second part: The officer did not code the ticket as reduced either, does that limit my exposure to the original clocked speed if I take it to court?

Background: no convictions in over 10 years, 6 star insurance rating, insurance company will raise rates 5% for a minor conviction.

Thanks in advance.

I think it wont matter. The officer wrote 60, just in a sloppy manner. Try to fight it though and best of luck.

the ammending of a speed can be made with evidence provided by officer, not because the R code is there

If you have been ticket free for over 10 years, then its a good chance your insurance company wont need to run your abstract and check it... If you stay with them they may not even ever know you got a traffic ticket and your rates wont rise.... Insurance companys don't run your abstract everytime you renew, because it costs them money. This is atleast what my insurance company guy told me. I also havent had a ticket in about 10 years... Knock on wood!

Follow up: Trial date was on the 1st of Feb, X-Copper represented me and had the case dismissed because of the fatal error (the officer attempted to correct the rate of speed on the face of the ticket.)

Thanks X-Copper!
