I'm planning on taking it to court, but is there any way I can prove that the officer potentially tagged one of the two cars infront of me who sped up to merge into traffic infront of the truck, and because I was the vehicle he saw in that lane when I entered his view (under the bridge) I was immediately assumed to have been the one speeding? Or is that a useless argument that people have probably used before and I should try arguing calibration/certified/he has no independent information without the radar?
First time fighting a ticket, and paralegals want $300 + HST to fight this ticket for me, when I honestly wasn't even speeding, and they might just accept a lesser charge, which I have no plan of accepting and therefore want to fight it myself.
Any advice would be helpful. Also, does the officer have to prove it was my car he detected with the radar? As I would find that nearly impossible to prove as because I was coming downhill, I could have seen him before he'd have seen me, and as soon as I saw him, he was already standing on the road with his arms out signalling stop.
Any advice would be helpful. If you do not feel I can win with my current argument, what technicalities or other arguments should I be using?
