No. If the individual was the person who was stopped for the violation and the person the ticket was issued to, the residential address error is irrelevant. It is a misconception that traffic tickets can be deemed invalid due to a error in the spelling of a name, address, SS# and so forth. It is getting even more difficult to defend a ticket issued when a video camera is used to tape the violation. The best option is to simply pay the ticket and become more aware of one's driving habits to avoid future difficulties.
