There are no automatic dismissals. Every Judge and Magistrate in Palm Beach County is different. Each of them also has different standards to dismiss a traffic ticket. Some will dismiss if the statute cited is wrong. Some will dismiss the dates or the defendant’s name is incorrect. Keep in mind, many Judges will permit the officer to amend the traffic ticket if there is a clerical error, others do not. Yes, there should be more consistency, but like most issues in the courtroom, the Judges have great discretion.
