Traffic Violation:

Information Included on a Ticket

While each jurisdiction has its own form for traffic tickets, some information is standard. This generally includes:

  • Details of the vehicle, including color, make, and model
  • The registration of the vehicle
  • Details surrounding the alleged offense, including date, time, and location
  • The precise violation
  • The name and badge number of the officer that issued the ticket
  • A notice detailing if the ticket can be contested in court

Incorrect information can aid in fighting the ticket in court.
