Last year i got a speeding ticket for 85 in a 50. Cop didn't drop it or anything. Anyways, I didn't go to court and got convicted. Then i went to the Justice's offices and requested that it be reinstated. Told them i was taking a course for school in montreal (not true but they bought it). Went to court, cop didn't show, no conviction, clean record.
Now that may not work all the time, but my guess is that when the ticket was reinstated and a new court date was set. The cop must have thought it was an error; as days before, he got notice that I was convicted.
