Unfortunetly, I believe that you may be outta luck. Even though it says highway that does not mean that you must be on the hwy to get the ticket. Most/all streets are considered to be hwy's/thruways. So, you won't be able to get off on that issue..even if something is spelt wrong ..it can be fixed by the court prior pr during your trial. I think you're going to have to go to the 1st appearance and tell them you want a court date. If the cop doesn't show you will be off, you can even talk to him during this time and ask him to drop to avoid point loss. But now I think all minor offences are 2points now -so even if you fight and lose the points maynnot be dropped but the fine might be.
just from experience..my court date is in June/03..18 months after I asked for a court date-earliest they could give me. (90 in a 60 in the rain.)
don't feel so bad..hahaha
