My trial date was Dec 3, I obtained the services of a traffic ticket agent, but disclosure was not given until the morning of the trial date during a recess. Adjournment was granted and a new trial is going to be in April.
In the officer's notes it states I was the only car in view, which hampers my defense because I have proof a Corvette is hard to clock on RADAR if there is taller traffic around it . Now I know some people are skeptics and think I was going 143, but I can assure you I was going 120.
Any advice so I can challenge the officer's testimony that I was the ONLY car on the road? Time of ticket 14:11, mid June.
What day of the week??? If you get your hands on a Radar manual it should mention in there that large targets are easier to get a reading on then smaller ones. However, if you have representation then it would be better to let them handle this.....How far down the road, from the point where the officer checked speeds, did the stop take place? Anything more then 2 KM would suggest there was other traffic at the time.SmokeScreen wrote:Any advice so I can challenge the officer's testimony that I was the ONLY car on the road?

that has absolutely NOTHING to do with it. I routinely take farther, sometimes it has been 5-10k before I stop a car.....why? not for volume of traffic, but my dispatch is busy with other units, so I wait my turn and I will not stop any vehicle until my dispatch has checked the plate first, then I tell them where I am. Then should I need urgent help, everyone knows where I am.Reflections wrote:How far down the road, from the point where the officer checked speeds, did the stop take place?
