There are a few different copies of these tickets, you have to be more clear as to which copy the officer gave you.

Demerit points are never shown on the ticket. The offence of follow too closely carries 4 demerit points.

Your copy of the ticket should say "offence notice" near the top and explain your three options on the back whereas the officer's original copy will say "certificate of offence" near the top.

The officer must serve you with the offence notice and keep the certificate of offence for himself. If he gave you the offence notice along with another carbon copy by mistake, that won't likely help you.

He gave me the ticket I am suppose to get and the ticket he is suppose to keep. So the one that you write on and the ticket the writing goes onto and he is suppose to keep. Will it be processed because I live quite far from where the ticket happened. Does this help me in any way?
