marked non commercial but license is commercial / PA state police speeding ticket.

Recommended Posts

I have a speeding ticket issued in Milton County from PA state police stating the my license is NON COMMERCIAL but my license is a New York State Commercial driver license.  It's simply a marking of commercial or not.  Trooper issued me ticket for 60 on a 55 but gave me a break as I was actually caught radar doing 72 on the 55.  The fine is about a buck 60.  If I want to fight it, I would have to get a lawyer and it could cost more?  Is the ticket defective and a sure dismissal or should I just pay it?  It's for Mufflinville Township, PA court, I believe.  Any PA traffic ticket lawyer here to help?

A lot more. Maybe $1000 to $1500 for the lawyer fee.

No, it's not defective. The officer could have written dog license or fishing license and the ticket wouldn't be defective.

Can you take traffic school? If you are eligible it will keep it off your record and out of the hands of your insurance company.

Fight it on what basis?

 

In any event, despite your use of a question mark, this sentence is not a question.  If your intent was to ask whether you "would have to get a lawyer," the answer is no.  If you're asking how much a lawyer in Milton County, PA might charge for a case such as yours, call some lawyers there and ask.

We've never seen it, so we have no way of knowing.  However, even if the ticket were "defective" in some way, a ticket is nothing but notice, which could be amended to cure any defects.

Probably, unless traffic school is an option to keep it off your record.
