When I look at the ticket the name that shows up is not my full name. Because I now have an EDL my full name (as it appears on my birth certificate) appears on my DL. The officer wrote my given name as Joseph and my last name only. My DL reads Joseph (as in Joseph or Marie depending on gender) then my father's name, then my god-father's name and then my name. followed of course by my family name.
So here's my question, if my name is incomplete on the ticket can this help me out in court. Joseph is not my given name, it would be like calling me by my middle name. If this incomplete name is accepted then my dad and brother would also be called Joseph.
Furthure more the officer also wrote the wrong street number for my adress. Now I know that these are not huge mistakes on their own but both mistakes together on the same ticket. My reasoning is that if I didn't have my DL with me at the time, I am deemed to have given reasonable identification if I give my name ans adress to the officer (under the HTA) I'm pretty sure if I gave an incomplete name and wrong adress to identify myself to a police officer during a traffic stop I would have bigger problems than just a speeding ticket or a fail to carry license ticket!
Thoughts and opinions please?
