It also lists one street, as opposed to an intersection, as the "exact location of violation". This street has several posted speed limits, not solely the one listed by the officer as the speed limit he felt I was in violation of.
A time error of one hour is not likely to lead to a dismissal. If you can show your location was in a different speed zone, one you were not in violation of, you might have a shot. If you really want to contest it, it would be best to hire a lawyer.

Only if you have a rock solid provable alibi for the listed time. Otherwise, it's not fatal to the citation.
No it is not. But, there may be other errors that combined with that error could amount to a citation being dismissed. It is difficult but not impossible.
This information is general in nature and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship. Nothing in the above answer is meant as legal advice that would create any type of attorney-client relationship.
In general, such an error would not be grounds for a dismissal. However, it could be but one small factor in potentially convincing a prosecutor to do something with the charge. You should contact a good local attorney.
You need to have the citation and facts reviewed by a criminal defense attorney if you want to contest it. www.kacdl.net
Minor factual errors are not fatal to the prosecution of the case generally.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
The time should not warrant a dismissal, but there may be a question of fact as to the correct speed limit. How much does the ticket cost? Is it worth contesting? What are the long term consequences to just paying the ticket? You should ask these questions before incurring additional costs. If the consequences are severe, and if there are perhaps additional charges not listed, then I would recommend you speak with an attorney.
