My guess would be that at somepoint the needle was popped off, gauge overlay, odometer fraud.....?

If it makes any difference, I live in CA and had my old car where I got a speeding ticket going 80 in a 65. That car's whole instrument cluster (including speedo) didnt work at all. I told the cop and he basically said i was SOL even though i was just going with the flow of traffic. Then when I went to court with proof that it didn't work the judge still charged me with the full effect of the ticket. $350. Lame... So i don't know how much luck you would get with it being off by 13 mph if I couldn't even get away with a broken one. Worst part was it went out the day before.

Actually this is not always ignorance, however the op knew his speedo was off. But many states do let you off/reduce fine if you can prove that the speedo was off and that it WAS fixed

Just curious, why do you want your brake/tail lights more difficult to see?

Ya, unfortunately that is sometimes the only option. I was pissed because they didn't even reduce the ticket
