12 Tips for Beating an Arizona Photo-Enforcement Ticket #5

Tip 5: Once in a While, a Process Server Might Cheat

How many kids in your fourth-grade class said they wanted to be a process server when they grew up? Process servers tend to get paid for each ticket they successfully deliver. Not to put too fine a point on it, but some may interpret this as an incentive to, shall we say, pad their stats.

You can challenge a bogus process service in court and, if you win, cause the server to lose his or her license. Maybe you could even get your ticket thrown out.

In order to keep tabs, you can check the status of a ticket on the state’s court site or the court site for the city that sent the notice of violation. If the site shows the ticket has been served but you know better, you should contact the court immediately. (Otherwise, your driver’s license may be suspended.)
