My son was driving the car on my name and got speeding ticket and the citation is on my name instead of him. can this be thrown out?
It can, whether or not it will is anyone's guess.
As to the "technicality", it probably won't be fatal to the ticket, not in terms of a motion to dismiss anyhow. Still, cross-examination is called an "art" for good reason and, these inconsistencies can definitely, 100%, be used to destabilize and bring into question the officer's observations, memory, accuracy, reliability and overall credibility, all of which can result in a "not guilty" verdict.
However, my guess is that you have about as much business practicing law as I do commanding a nuclear submarine... meaning none. Please understand that this is not personal to you. It is a simple truism in the legal profession. It is very easy to screw up a case when one does not understand the complexities of the rules of evidence, the nuances of rules of procedure and the art of cross-examination; and you are very likely to unintentionally screw up your case if you serve as your own lawyer (ergo Abe Lincoln's famous quote... "He who represents himself has a fool for a client.").
That said, in my opinion, the best defense for any traffic citation anywhere is to hire a local traffic ticket lawyer. I can't speak to the Sanford area per se but in Miami, Fl, where I have been a practicing defense lawyer for nearly 30 years, there are many skilled and experienced traffic lawyers who know the law, the procedure, the Judge and probably the cop. In short you will almost certainly get both competent representation and a better result for a relatively small fee / investment.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
