The other day I was sick so I called in work and stayed home. An officer came knocking at my door looking for the owner of my car. Apparently a week from that day a bus reported my car passing it while it was at a stop. I know for a fact that I did not and had my younger brother in my car who also said he never saw a stopped bus. The bus driver did not see who was driving the car or the license plate and has no video footage. After he dropped off the kids he went around the neighborhood looking for a car that looked like mine and found mine parked on the driveway and wrote my license plate then reported it two days later. The officer was saying that it must be me because I have a lime green car so it's very distinct. However, in my area there are many college students with the exact same car. In fact I saw it so much and liked it thats why I got the car I have. Though a lime green car is distinct there are many people in my city with the exact same car and I see it them all the time. I even have 3 of them on facebook. That's how common my car and the color is. I have never gotten a traffic ticket and I am a really big rule follower so I was very shocked and taken back.
I'm moving your question over the Criminal Defense category; someone there will be better able to assist you.
You will need to go to court and try to prove your innocence. Many people are charged with crimes they did not commit. It is up to the prosecutor to prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in order for him to get a conviction on you.
