He passed the off duty cop that was in his personal car. The off duty cop called an on duty cop to issue the ticket. The off duty officer is the one who signed the ticket. My son said he was not speeding or tailgating and doesn't understand what he did that warranted the ticket. He is only 16.
The police can do this unfortunately. Hiring an attorney to fight this will probably cost more than what the ticket costs. He can ask to take defensive driving to keep the ticket off of his record.
Have him go in and talk to the prosecutor. If it is his first offense and he agrees to take a defensive driving class, it will likely either get dropped or maybe even dismissed.
