I received a citation in the mail. To make a long story short, I was cited by an off duty state trooped who stated that on his way home from work in his personal vehicle, I allegedly followed him too closely through a contruction zone on the Pa Turnpike. He stated he waited for me to exit the road so he could identify me and then ran my plates. I was in this area during this time but how should I proceed as I to not remember this incident at all?
