As the date on the ticket is wrong, I'm hoping that the officer filed it under the correct day (21st, instead of 22nd) and that I'll be convicted in absentia. I figure I should then be able to appeal based on being mislead by the ticket date and not noticing it was wrong until later.
Not sure if that really matters either... sort of a shot in the dark.
