Can a speeding ticket be dismissed due to complete wrong home address?

Unread post by Mellymel on

My boyfriend received a speeding ticket tonight. It was going 121km in an 80. He believes he was going 110. So yes he was speeding, just not quite as fast as was posted on the ticket. But when I looked at the ticket when he got home. The officer wrote down the complete wrong home address. We have just moved a few weeks ago. The officer was given the ownership with the correct address, the car insurance with the correct address and a drivers license (that had the old address) along with the printed piece of paper stating the new current address. The officer still filled out the ticket with the old address. Can this ticket be thrown out because of this, this is more than a mere spelling mistake, especially when all the correct information had been given to him?
Any insight is appreciated.

No. A wrong address is not considered a fatal error.
