  • Is having the wrong information on a speeding ticket worth taking to court?

    I was given a speeding ticket, that was clocked by a radar, saying I was going 72mph with a 55mph limit. On my affidavit the officer states that I was driving a 2004 Black Cadillac Escalade, but in reality I drive a 2008 Burgundy Chevy Equinox.
