I was in an accident and was given a “following too closely” ticket. Regardless of the details, I'm sure this would be an impossible infraction to dispute because a collision did occur. But the vehicle listed on my ticket as being unlawfully operated by myself is, in error, the vehicle that was in front of me, not my vehicle. Is this grounds for dismissal?
Cannot say for Kansas, but in Maryland , if it were dismissed, the officer would just write you another ticket. Jeopardy has not attached.
