    Default Double Ticket for Expired Registration Sticker

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Pennsylvania
    Recently, my spouse was stopped for speeding, driving 53mph in a 45 mph speed zone. My spouse was nervous as it was first ever traffic violation in life time. Officer reviewed registration and insurance and issued two tickets, one for speeding and second for expired registration sticker. There are two issues we need help/advise:

    1. First officer stopped for speeding 53 in 45 speed zone, but he issued a ticket with 65 mph (clearly shows that he changed/over write 55 to 65).
    2. We still paid both tickets (total about $ 300), instead of wasting time in court or paying for a lawyer at that point. But now we recieved an other ticket in my name for expired registration as car is on my name, and this ticket is again of about $200.

    Is it normal/legal to send two tickets for expired stickers? and is it worth challenging in court?

    Thanks for your time and advise in advance.

    This would be a wrong ticket. In actuality, your wife & you are probably both owners of the vehicle. Explaining why to a judge will take some doing.

    You can continue to receive tickets for expired registration until you stop breaking the law. You create new offenses every time you drive that car.

    Did he get a ticket after the wife for the same-time offense?

    Yup, but only if vehicle was driven or parked on public property.

    Please understand the post before adding your comments. The question I am asking is for same offense can "cash hungry" big arse ticket someone twice? Actually, sticker was renewed immediately before driving the car again, but ticket came in mail afterward saying why spouse was allowed to drive with expired sticker

    Actually second (which is actually third ticket) came in mail saying why spouse was allowed to drive my car with expired sticker. Even though since the first ticket, car was not driven any more rather sticker was immediately renowed.
