My question involves traffic court in the State of: Arizona.
My wife was pulled over the other day and cited for lack of current registration. However, her tags were current, she only did not have a copy of her current registration with her.
The failure to carry proof is a separate violation, for which she was not cited. The cite was for not having the vehicle registered.
Although in many states this would be a simple "fixit", in AZ there's $84 in fees attached to simply PROVING that her tags were in fact current.
My wife wants to plead not guilty and ask the Court to dismiss. I can write a motion to dismiss for her to take in - my question is:
Does it make sense to include the motion to dismiss along with her paperwork entering her plea?
It seems silly to have her to through the entire process of making an appearance at the hearing, simply to point out that the cite was written for a violation that, prima facie, did not occur.
Thanks in advance for all help!
