My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: NM
While passing through ABQ last week, got pulled over for 14mph over the 65mph limit on I-25 by NMHP.
Had been 75 on I-40 all the way in from AZ.
Highway Patrol was on far right shoulder, my vehicle was far left lane (3 lanes over) in fairly congested late afternoon traffic.
He claimed to have used 'Goldeneye' Radar via his rear receiver, but would not give further info regarding what band it used, or show me a printout/screen of the speed, saying we'd figure that out in court.
Radar detector with X, K, Ka, Laser did not make a peep.
Handed my CCW, DL and Insurance info over, and it was easily a 10 minute stop, meaning he had plenty of time for accuracy, did not get an urgent call in the middle of writing it, etc..
He stroked me the ticket, but on review a couple of days later, I noticed he put my Middle name as my First name, and my First Name as my last name on the ticket
e.g. example name: James Michael Smith, but filled on ticket as: Michael James
My last name was completely omitted from the citation.
DOB, DL # etc. written on ticket are all accurate. I am not a NM resident.
My name is as simple as the name above, all english, and it is listed on my license as First, Middle, Last.
Is this guy in some way trying to let me off, or did he have a brain fade?
In NM, is this material error enough to invalidate the citation?
