After 15 Years I got My First Speeding Ticket
How can I beat a speeding ticket? What is the best way to beat a speeding ticket in court?
I’ve been driving for 15 years and have never gotten a speeding ticket. I don’t even think I was speeding when I got pulled over! Anyway, there was also an error on the ticket (the fine didn’t match the speed overage listed). I don’t think my defense can be “I really wasn’t speeding!” so what are my options?
The officer didn’t even look up my record. When he handed me the ticket he asked me if I had ever gotten a ticket in before and I said I had never gotten a ticket anywhere before. How do I find out about the calibration of the radar before going to court (I go in July). Thanks!!!!
The officer in has to be not only Post Certified to be an officer but also has to be certified and trained on the specific type of radar equipment they are using.
Next I forget if it is annual or bi annual but they are required to go to training to keep their certification up ( something many forget, can’t get into a class or they are late getting the class)
so every day there are some officers running radar where their certification has become outdated.
Next the actual radar equipment has to be FCC licensed and tested, and every day upon the start of his use of this equipment he has to do a tuning fork test for calibration. There is a log carried in the car with the radar unit where they enter the test results.
You can request this from discovery of evidence though the court. But should be doing it with an attorney.
It will cost you more to beat it, than the fine, and one ticket on your record has little effect
