Aaaaahhh... yes. You should give yourself an extended vacation. Because you definitely overworked yourself to accomplish that.
Seriously though, you're only fooling yourself. the links you provided offer ZERO value. They do not answer the OP's question, nor do they add any value to what he already had, before he came here.
The first link you posted is a magazine article... An opinion. It has zero legal meaning and it offers zero benefit. It is entertainment. The OP came here with one question (And I quote): Now I know that misspellings on tickets rarely will benefit the ticketed, but might there be an exception in this case? i assume you read the article, and rather than me wasting my time reading it, can you do me a favor and point to the statements in that article that answers that question for the OP.
In fact, as far as questions and answers, the article didn't even answer its own question. The article is titled Does The NYPD Think Bikes Are More Dangerous Than Cars? And here is the best answer she could gather: I have no idea why the police have chosen to enforce this section so aggressively, other than it might be easy. Very informative indeed.
The second link you provided is some sort of guide on how to handle the ticket... or is it a summons? Well, let's see, that is where the guide starts... With a comparison:
Ticket vs. Summons:
If you have been given a summons, you have to appear in court on the date specified. Here is what a summons looks like:
Then you are supposed to click on the picture so you can familiarize yourself with what a summons looks like. Yet if you do click on the picture, and if you were to look at the top of the front (left image), you can clearly see that it is described IN RED as a TRAFFIC TICKET.
You might note that this "guide" is simply the same information that is printed on the back of the ticket... I mean the summons... Or whatever that might be! So this second link actually provided the OP with information he already had. Again, zero value, ZERO benefit... And again, the OP came here with one question: Now I know that misspellings on tickets rarely will benefit the ticketed, but might there be an exception in this case?... Can you point to the portion of that guide where the OPs question was answered?
That said, and if you add in the few statements you made which make it clear you
Why? Because he asked a question that he knew the answer to? Or was it a question that he should not have asked? Either way, for many of us, this became the break in the monotony of having to provide serious answers. We didn't mistreat him, he set himself up to be mistreated.
You still have not answered the OP's question... But we can pretend that there is any value to the information... After all, it must all be factual, accurate and on point. And you believe it to be so because.... oh yeah, because you read it on the internet. And let's not forget that it came from an "unnamed source"... That makes it more legitimate!
Keep up the good work... But seriously though, do yourself a favor and stop acting like you're the forum police.
