how do you know it is a wrong court date?
well, it is hard to get a dismissal based on what the court will interpret to be an "error" that is not material to the matter at hand. if you go to court and plead not guilty, and explain what happened perhaps, you can get it dismissed that way. much better to do that, then to give an appearance to the court that your only out would be an unintentional error by the cop - this way you can state you are not guilty. get a reduced fine, at the very least.
