    ticketed to various vehicle code violations

    Forty drivers were ticketed to various vehicle code violations and another 19 cars and trucks were towed away, the release says.

    (From http://www.swrnn.com/2011/09/10/five...moreno-valley/)
    Is to incorrect, but is "due to" correct?

    I would use either "due to" or simply "for". In BrE you get a ticket "for" a traffic/parking violation.
