When I was 16...
87 in a 35 at about 2am
Beer behind my seat, and I'm sure I reeked of pot!
He wrote me a reckless op and told me to slow down...went to court and lost my license for 90 days

Could've been much worse, looking back

Ask for proof of when the officer last calibrated and tested their radar gun.
Those guns need to be checked, calibrated, and tested every so often. The officer has to keep a log. And to drag things out you can even ask for a demonstration on how its done.
Remember the system is still "Innocent until PROVEN guilty".
They have to provide as much proof as possible. Its their word against yours and your onboard speedometer against their radar gun, which may be faulty. Thats called playing the "reasonable doubt" card.

If you fight it and consume the judges time and the officers time and it ends up being more costly than the ticket they will most likely dismiss it.
Most people just pay the fine and go on, thats what they are hoping and wanting people to do. They dont like it much when people actually defend themselves and fight it.

This mostly works if your going like 60 in a 50 zone. If you are going like 80-100 in a 45 yeah youre probably screwed.

My stepdad was a deputy sheriff, he said this happens every now and then, but about 8 out of 10 will just pay the ticket and not fight it.
around here the magisterial judges(2 of em now that i been in front of) believe the officers over you 99% of the time and even if you ask for that stuff the judge is still gonna believe the cop...its pretty corrupt id say..thats how i got outta the suspended driving ticket conviction...DA reduced it once he heard the same reasoning i told the judge who found me guilty..even said that judge was an idiot. so around here its almost easier to just plead gulty if its a no points violation.

as far as my speedo being off, I haven't gotten pulled over for speeding enough to know for sure xD Course the one time I did get pulled over was in a 60 doing 87. Cop came up to me (it was also like midnight, around here most people are in their homes by 9) looked at me with a look of disbelief. I think he was going to let me off simply because he didn't think it would have gone that fast. He said I was squealing all the way up to him (he was going the opposite way of me) and sounded like I was going to put a piston through my hood. Thinking about it now, I laugh because the look on his face was just priceless xD

about a week after owning my ranger, bone stock. 235/75 15 tires. got pulled over for the first time going 110 in a 90 zone, cop asked why he pulled me over i said i have no clue.. so he tellls me how fast i was going, i said really!!!!! my spedo said i was going 95! then i explained i just got the truck and i thought the owner may have put bigger tires on it and it threw off the spedo. he looks down and says, oh yeah! they do look bigger! then he send me off on my way hahahahahaha. im sure he was just giving me a break though.

first actual ticket i got was for tinted tail lights in a small town, where the cops are all jacka$ses for 120$

My very first one was when I was 22. Got caught 64 in a 40 in a 93 Dodge Spirit V6. I was on my way to work behind another guy, and we came up on a stop sign. The cop pulled behind me, and once I crossed the road, BAM he hit the lights. I pulled over, and he says "I clocked the guy in front of you at 63 and you at 64, and didn't have enough room to pull you both over." Well, needles to say, I ended up with the ticket. $155 fine and 4 points on my license. Had a couple others since, but not near that bad.

Shitty deal man.

Around here they simply pull over the first speeding car. I was riding with a buddy and we were racing another buddy. Hit 120 mph at one point (double speed limit) and only the buddy in front got pulled lol. Car I was in didn't get pulled.

And the guy that got pulled over got away with a warning lmao.


Me personally, I never go more than 5 over. And barely ever do that. So I have no tickets. Only been pulled over once for something completely unrelated.

Uh, no.

He pulled me over because I touched the shoulder a bit lol. Nothing speeding related or anything. A simple be careful, as he had recently seen a car hit the ditch an flip.

I would've told them they could accept the money as is or I could just not pay. Then when I ended up in court I'd show them the video and say I tried to pay them but they didn't take it.
