A 300 m shot with a beam width of .75m (yes that is the correct width for some Lidar) is very easy with a motor vehicle approaching while your off to the side of the road. With zero magnification as well. It's an every day occurrence.

Do you honestly think you could hit a car 300 meters away in the dark moving at between 80 to 121km /hr with a gun? I don't even think a sniper can make that shot most of the time from the ground nevermind an overweight police officer that's very unskilled compared to the sniper sitting in an upright position possibly with a donut or coffee in his other hand. It is the same principle except instead of bullets you are firing off light beams. Yes you don't have a recoil, but still, you can't make the shot and you know it.


That's an easy shot for a sniper and an easy shot for a police officer - we're talking about a vehicle coming towards you down the road so there is very minimal lateral movement. Having been an infantry Captain and a police officer I suspect I know a bit more about it than you.

By all means post but your completely unnecessary constant juvenile put-downs of the policing profession are reaching the point where I think you might just be a troll seeing how far you can push things before you get banned.

Thanks everyone for chipping in. I haven't had a chance to revisit this forum until today. I'm having a hard time following the thread to see if I have a case or not.

Here is some additional information, as well as the 3 pages that were provided to relating to the LIDAR gun.

I was travelling East (Towards Kitchener). I was stopped at Highway 7 & Walker's Line (https://www.google.ca/maps/place/ON-7+%26+Walker+Rd,+New+Hamburg,+ON/@43.3510445,-80.7157272,12z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x882c06cfde7861eb:0x4be03ca56f27166c!8m2!3d43.3650945!4d-80.7118799

As you can see, there was a curve and the lights of the officer turned on before I passed him. He must have got his reading while the car was still turning and approaching him. Does that help?

Thanks again.

I also realised that on the ticket, it says there were no witnesses. I had a passenger with me. Doesn't that count as a witness. Can I call him out on that?

Witnesses would be individuals supplying evidence for the charge.

It will make no difference at trial to the outcome whether that was filled in correctly or not, so it is not relevant at all.

What about the curved road mixed with the lights coming on before passing him at a distance of 300m in the dark?

The curve in the road may actually lower your speed. The speed is more accurate the more straight on it is...the curve will never give a false high reading...and the headlight argument is no good either...
