Point is she did not even remember about the renewal and I was completely clueless about it. What are my options? Could I fight this in court and use this excuse that I'm not guilty since "it's my wife's responsibility" excuse and show the insurance or registration with her name on it?
What if I show up in court with and new sticker and use this excuse?
Thanks in advance!
I've been in a similar situation - I was driving my company's delivery vehicle, when I got nailed in a speed trap. Speeding ticket aside, the cop also gave me a ticket for no ownership, because our headoffice forgot to photocopy part of the vehicles ownership (they had a copy of the vehicle portion of the ownership in the car, but forgot to copy the plate portion of the permit, which also includes a copy of the sticker your put on your plate). As the driver of that vehicle I should of made sure the paper work was in order, but thankfully my company paid for the ticket (they deemed that the $110 fine was cheaper to pay than sending me to court for half a day to show the proper paperwork to get the charge dismissed).
and simply for a conviction the plate is expired on date stopped or not
