    Default Wrong Race on my Ticket

    I just got a speeding ticket for supposedly going 84 on a 65 on the highway in Ohio. But under the race category of the ticket it says "B". I am Asian. And I don't really recall there being an abbreviation for an Asian that started with a "B". So I'm thinking "B" is for Black. Is that right or is that just another abbreviation for Asian that I don't know of.

    My next question then is, if "B" is "Black" then do I have a shot at contesting the ticket since its the wrong race? I mean if the officer can't even tell my own race then does that mean I have a shot at getting off the ticket? I need to go to court regardless since its my 2nd offense within a year.

    Any answer would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Default Re: Wrong Race on my Ticket

    The error appears to a "harmless" one, as known in legal parlance. You of course can argue for a dismissal based on such, but even if granted it will most likely be refiled or even corrected in court and a dismissal not granted. It does not appear to be prejudicial to your case. This argument is of course your decision to ensue, you were issued the ticket.
