I saw a cop with no lights on pulling out of a street perpendicular to me so I checked my speed and was doing Exactly 50 in a 40 and continued on as It was 11pm at night.
The cop pulls out infront of me which required for me to press on my brakes so I gave her a quick double flash instead of honking.
I thought nothing of it and continued to drive for about another KM or so.
I then look in my rear view to see her speedup and get extremely close to my rear bumper and turn on her light.
She pulls me over and says I was flying down that street so she pulled in front of me.
I told her I wasnt "speeding" what so ever trying to be very cooperative but she kept on giving me attitude.
In the end I got a ticket for
- Failure to use lower beam
which costed me $110.
Is this even illegal.
I felt as if she was looking to give someone a ticket then.
I plan on fighting it any advice?

Oops you're right.argyll wrote:Your post isn't very clear. Did the cruiser pull in front of you ? Then how did it appear behind you ?
I was going down a street, the cop made a left turn from the street that was perpendicular to me, she was coming out on my right side.
I guess she then made a uturn afterwards since we were going in opposite directions after she pulled out of that road.
Hopefully thats more clear.
It would seem to me that you got the right ticket.
