MailBoxIn Boston or anywhere in Massachusetts drivers that are stopped are supposed to be given a speeding ticket immediately. Still, police officers sometimes mail the ticket to the driver after the incident. Massachusetts Law is very clear on this practice.

 

A failure to give a copy of the citation to the violator at the time and place of the violation shall constitute a defense in any court proceeding for such violation, except where the violator could not have been stopped or where additional time was reasonably necessary to determine the nature of the violation or the identity of the violator, or where the court finds that a circumstance, not inconsistent with the purpose of this section to create a uniform, simplified and non-criminal method for disposing of automobile law violations
