Last month I got a ticket for "Driving Without Lights-When Required", When cop stopped me I accepted the guilty and signed for it and he mentioned as per rules I should turn on the lights and the ticket copy I have received also have the same info. When I checked in website http://www.jp.hctx.net/ there were 2 tickets instead of one at same time with same court date and time, Second one say Speeding.
Cop didn't mentioned any thing about this and also before he stop me I was in a single with red light, he came later stood behind me as lights on my number plate was not lit, there is no chance for speeding..
how to fight for second one.. and I prefer to take defensive driving for the fist one.
Yes, it is permissible for an officer to issue 2 or more infractions on the same citation. The officer also is not required to verbally inform you about each violation; that is why you are provided written notice of the offenses. Contacting a local attorney would help. Good luck.
A cop is able to give you multiple citations on one ticket. That one signature you executed promises that you will be present on the court date provided on your ticket to resolve the citations. If you want to fight one you should fight both since there is a possibility of getting one dropped in exchange for doing deferral or defensive driving for the other citation. Hiring an experienced traffic attorney can help you navigate the best deal for your case.
