Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am very sorry to hear that this happened to you.This will not void the ticket. When the officer learns of the error they will just amend the ticket.But that does not mean you cannot fight this in court.What some people do when they get a tickets is they plead not guilty and then they attend court. At court, well before the trial, they speak to the officer and/or the Crown and indicate that they are willing to plead guilty to a lesser offence. For example, it could be that you would plead guilty to a ticket that would hold a lesser fine.In most but not all cases the Crown wants to do this to save the Crown and the judge time. No one wants to see trial after trial so these tickets are usually able to be solved favourably for all parties by pleading guilty to a lesser offence.Does that help as a starting point?
