    Expired 30-day Tags

    What is the name of your state? Virginia.
    I recieved a ticket to go to court because the 30-day tags on my vehicle expired and I was driving the car. However, I was driving to my rental office (It was very cold outside) My car did not leave the apartment complex. The police officer told me he saw my car earlier drive in off the public road but he was on foot and couldnt stop me at that time. Is it illegal since I was not driving on a real street at the time he pulled me over? Can he give me a ticket for something he claimed to see earlier that day? Is this worth bringing up to the judge when I go to court?

    A police officer can wait up to one year to write a ticket, writing one later in the day is no problem.
    If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.

    Especially if he was able to ID you as the earlier driver.
