"Fail to obey traffic sign" Dispute Options
I recently recieved ticket claiming a failure to obey traffic sign. No accident resulted, and this is my first ticket.
On the face of the ticket, the officer stated Sec. 161 of the MVA, but did not specify 161a/161b/161c or 161d.
Would this be grounds to have the ticket dismissed? I am not sure which section I allgedly violated, and as such, how could I strategize an appropriate defense if I don't know which requirement I allegedly failed to meet?
Also, "N/A" was written under the registered owner of the vehicle field on the face of the ticket. I was the driver, and I am the registered owner. Should that not be indicated?
As this is my first ticket, and I do not want points added to my abstract, *IF* I was hypothetically proven guilty of the offense what are my options?
Is it possible to request to plead to the ticketed offence as the registered owner of the car and not the driver? In doing so, paying the monetary (or reduced) amount, and not retaining any of the points? If so, how is this possible if the registered owner's name is not printed on the face of the ticket?
