Why not take it to court and see what the judge says. You might want to hope that the judge has a good sense of humor that day. Yes. Generally, traffic tickets may be issued within some short period of time such as 30 days after the occurrence of the violation. The fact that the police officer was off duty at the time is not relevant.
