What to do if You Were Ticketed for an Equipment Violation but No Longer Own the Car

What to do if You Were Ticketed for an Equipment Violation but No Longer Own the Car- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Equipment violations are generally marked as ‘correctable’ on your ticket, meaning if you fix it you are eligible to have it dismissed. Some examples of equipment violations include: illegal tinted windows, missing license plates, worn out tires, or a broken tail light.

Although most equipment violation tickets do not result in a point going on your record, the cost of the ticket will be far less if you have the violation corrected. Upon showing proof of correction to the clerk of the court you will only be charged a nominal fee, generally $25.00. As a comparison, an equipment violation ticket without proof of correction can cost over $100.00. Moreover if you do not have the violation fixed you are at risk for getting subsequent tickets.

Issues arise when you have sold the car since receiving the ticket or the car is now inoperable. If this occurred prior to you having the violation corrected, then you will no longer be able to obtain proof of correction. Therefore you will need to present your case to a judge along with proof of sale (showing you no longer own the car), or the relevant paperwork that shows the vehicle is now inoperable. The judge has the discretion to dismiss the ticket for you even though you never took care of the fix – it – ticket. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
