    111 bucks, blah! My fault obviously...but I was checking out the ticket and all the info is wrong. My license plate number is wrong, it says I was driving a Nissan 2007 Sedan...I drive a 2006 Scion Coupe (TC) and supposedly it took place in Levittown, PA, but it didn't, it happened in Langhorne. Hmm, I'm wiling to pay since I completely fucked up, but if theres anychance of getting out of it since all the info is wrong I'd be willing to try.

    Then how would he explain where he got the ticket full of incorrect info?

    "See? It wasn't me! It was this Nissan? Oh, how did I get the ticket? Um, I'm a good samaritan and found this in the street and decided to come fight it."

    Pay up homie.

    You probably should have to pay, but you should also get the ticket info corrected. It might go on someone else's record if you do not do it.

    Yeh, just point out something like "Hey so, everything on this ticket is completely wrong, FYI. Might wanna talk to the guy that wrote it." when you pay.

    If the information on the ticket is incorrect then take it to a traffic ticket specialist. I've done that before and walla, no more ticket.

    If the ticket uses carbon paper sometimes previous tickets written can show up on your copy but not on the officer's. I once got a speeding ticket and about had a heart attack when I looked it over the ticket hours later and saw additional charges of driving without a license, failure to show proof of insurance, and reckless driving. None of which should have applied to me. :eek: 

    Turns out none of them were actually for me - just some other poor jerk.

    Just pray that the person you rear-ended doesn't suddenly come up with neck pains 8 months later and sue you for $10,000. :redface2:

    Take it to the county attorney's office and ask them to look it over. You can fight it if you want. You can always go before the judge and tell him you will pay even though the information is wrong. Kinda play up the fact that you could fight it but you are not. He might reduce the charge. The same thing can happen at the county attorney's office. They might let you plead to a lesser charge to keep you from fighting it.

    The criminal code is the epitome of bureaucracy. If there's any discrepancy on the report, it may as well be a get out of jail free card. I know you're not facing jail time, but I couldn't pass up that analogy.

    Okay, you have no freaking excuse for that. If I EVER catch you doing that again, you're out of the country.

    Admit your wrongdoing in this instance, but show them the inaccuracies, and they'll most likely brush it under the carpet, or make it a lesser fee.

    I've seen them do it before, PA likes to keep a good look about themselves. (Bastards.)

    Plus the person they incorrectly said was you, could sue their asses off and to avoid that would much rather keep it hush hush.

    you know trafic officers in T.O. are rather weird they gave me a ticket once for not paying the parkimeter-those that give you a ticket- while the ticket was still valid....so hilarity ensued.

    See, what you really need is a sibling who's a Police Officer.

    I rear-ended someone accidentally about 9 years ago. The officer on scene knew my brother, so I ended up with a "running a stop sign" ticket, paid the fine, no points.
