Sure, you can fight this ticket and get it overturned, but if I am not mistaken, you may end up paying for court costs and fees to do this. Something similar to me happened about four years ago, and I ended up getting the case thrown out of court, but I was charged around $100 for court fees ($50 after I donated blood a week later). Sure, it is well worth it not having to use the traffic school option in case I intentionally decide to drive on the wrong side of the highway after work one of these days, but still... tl;dr - the courts may possibly screw you over on fees regardless if you get it turned over.
That ticket won't stand up in court, especially with the arresting officer's relationship to your ex. Fight it!
Well my friend my advice is here now :) Before i left britan ( See my profile if you wanna know why) i had a styled regi plate on my Kawasaki Ninja so that speed cameras cant register it. I dunno if you get similar in America but British police are far to lazy to use radar guns or whatever. This has happened to many drivers i suggest file for a personal interferance inquiry and then contest the ticket infront of judge judy. Peace out x
This could even be construed as harrassment on his part or an abuse of power. Especially if he does it again.
You can definitely fight that. All cars have a /- 4 mph variation on their spedometers, so he can't really legally ticket you unless you're going five over the limit. Fight it with that info from a real source, and he can't do a thing. Your life will suck that much less. :)
Yeah, that sounds suspiciously like he has it in for you. Regardless of what transpired against his daughter and you, a ticket for a 31 in a 30 is easily overturned in court. They could relate that as a discrepancy in the radar, overuse of power stemming from a previously personal relationship, etc. While the cop was technically within his rights to issue the ticket, the basis of your relationship can prove that it was done probably in spite. Might cost him a suspension or maybe even his job..
