    I got stopped for speeding but got unclear plates and noise violation. I don't drive with music on because its distracting but i was cited anyway. I wanted to fight the noise violation for sure, but wanted to plead guilty to the unclear plates because I do have the dealer border surrounding the plates, which I removed after I was stopped. Can I be punished for speeding if he didn't write that on the ticket? Is it even admissible in court?

    All of his testimony is admissable in court. But, if you weren't cited for speeding you won't get punished for speeding.

    Plead not guilty to both and you might get a plea bargain to drop one and maybe take traffic school for the other.

    Make sure you keep the plate border and take it to court with you. Put it back on just to take a photo to show it doesn't obstruct the plate (if it doesn't) then take it back off.

    Not necessarily true. The charge can be amended in court OR dismissed and the ticket re-issued.

    It's called looking a gift horse in the mouth.

    Ahh, an experience police officer speaks.

    Yes, there are many nuances in the law that no statute could ever portend.

    One can a learn a great deal from the jail docket, yes sir, one surely can.
