My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: New York. It's answerable at a TVB.
It's written up as 1180d. In the 'notes' section of the ticket is "speed in zone".
The fields of the ticket for "MPH" and "In MPH Zone" are both blank.
I plead not guilty by mail and have been issued a hearing date. On the letter about the hearing date it says I'm to appear for "SP N/REAS-PRUD".
I have two questions.
First, is it likely that I can get the ticket dismissed based on the officer's not actually specifying any details pertaining to the supposed speeding which led to his issuing the ticket?
Second, "SP N/REAS-PRUD" looks to me like 1180a, "speed not reasonable or prudent", rather than 1180d, which is just plain speeding. Is it possible to correct this, and, if so, should I do so before the hearing date?
