    Default Officer Did Not Sign or Write His Badge No. on Ticket

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Pa.

    I was issued a traffic citation and where the officer was suppose to sign it states the following:

    I have served a copy of this Citation on the dependant.
    I verify that the facts set forth in this citation are true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information and belief. This verification is made subject to the penalties of section 4904 of the crime code relating to the unsworn falsification to authorities.

    The officer did not sign or print or put his badge number on the ticket nor would he give me his information. Will I have a good shot of fighting the validity of this ticket?

    Yes, indeed. However, you have to realize that there is NOTHING which prevents the officer from reissuing the ticket right there in court.

    Good luck,

    Thanks for your response, but how would the officer be able to issue another ticket if the officers name is not on the ticket? How would they contact the officer the hearing?

    Because all you have is a "carbon copy". The officer MAY have realized his mistake and properly signed the "original" -- which is the copy that is sent to the court. All you can do is show up for the hearing. If the officer is not there, you win anyway. If he is, you can argue that the charging document is insufficient, but, as I mentioned, he may reissue the ticket.
