I was stopped by a cop saying I was going 22kph over the speed limit, when there we 2 cars ahead of me in a 1-2 car distance. First thing he asked, why I was going 62kph when the 2 cars in front of me were going 40kph - which I don't even think is possible. I asked for a disclosure hoping I would get a record/transcript of the radar, but I didn't.

1. Can I ask for a radar record/transcript, if it is available?
2. If it does, how can I prove that it was not me? Mind you, there were 3 of us.

Thanks!

Unfortunately most speed measuring devises don't generate a written or visual record so the only thing you will get is what the officer wrote down by hand in his notes.

iFly55 - here's what it say
GREY MAZDA 5 SB
62 STA REAR SAME -- not sure what this means
M DR DL F PASS

SC 4284 -- again, not sure what this means
BEEIII # BEN 801000146 -- the radar
STAINES RD IS POSTED 40 KM/H ZONE
SIGNS POSTED IN BOTH DIRECTION
APPROX 150-200 APART

And they also gave me an Operation Manual for the radar.

daggx - so basically the only proof of my offense is whatever is written on his notes? so how can i prove that there were 3 of us and he even told me that the 2 cars ahead of me were going 40 and i'm going 62 - which technically, is quite impossible.

to be honest, when he turned his siren on, i didn't know who he was trying to stop because i was just following the cars in front of me.

That is going to be a tough one to prove. You and your passenger can both take the stand and testify to that effect and see if you can offer more convincing testimony then the officer. Also when you cross examine the officer you can see if you can get him to admit that there were other cars there that he might have picked up instead of you. Between those two things there is a chance you might be able to raise reasonable doubt. You can also double check with the prosecutor's office and see if the cruiser that stopped you had a dash cam running that might have picked something up, although if it did you would have probably gotten that as part of you disclosure package. Anyway that is all I can think of to try, some others might have different suggestions.

daggx - thanks for the advise. yes, my daughter still remembers that the officer did say that "the 2 cars ahead of me were going 40 and i was going 62". we were actually both puzzled at the officer's comment.
