Ok me and my gf were having a great time, it was day 3 we had just left radium hot springs on our way to banff via golden on the 95 (cause the fires shut down the other road) anyways it is a 100 km/h section.
So every once and a while we would come to a town, (pritty much dead towns) but the speed would change to 70 km/h. Now I just let off the gas once I near the sign that says 70 -> km/h the one with the arrow warning you its about to change and then by the time I would get to the actual 70 I would be near that speed. Anyways after many of these I came around a corner which dipped down, at the bottom of the dip was the sign to warn 70 -> km/h so I let off the gas, but then at the bottom of the dip we went back up a little and right at the top of the crest it was 70 NOW THIS WAS SO CLOSE TOGETHER so I was doing (what I thought was 88km/h) and the cop was right at the top of the crest with radar standing there, by the time I saw him I was doing about 80 like 2 seconds into the 70 zone, I pulled over. He came up to the window and said "I got you at 93km/h" he then asked for my license, I gave it to him and said "Im sorry I am not from the area and I had slowed down the the hill must have kept my speed so I didnt get to 70 as quick." I then started to say that it was just inside the 70 at the top of the crest and he inturpted me with "registration" I gave it to him and he was FUCKING IGNORING EVERYTHING I WAS SAYING, he then said sign here and I was like WTF looking at my gf, $176 plus 3 points means I will have to now pay an extra $300 to fucking ICBC over bull shit. I singed it and was so pissed off, I left drove like 2 seconds started loosing it so we pulled over at a rest area to let off my steam.
Anyways this is the most bullshit I have ever seen not only that he had the ticket all printed off like the MVA Speed against sign and all the info was pre printed on the ticket, all he did was put in my name and the car and that was it. He was a complete and asshole towards me, ignoring eveything I said. Not only that I thought it was illegal to take radar so close, I had just entered the 70 or not even when he said he got me, I think he could see the top of the car from where he was cause teh dip and rise was not that much but I could not see him. I am going to dispute this but I just dont understand why he had to be such an ass. Im sorry for all the other police officers on this site but it is ppl like this which make everyone hate the police.
I was a good person we helped out a lady after she hit a dear infront of us the day before, we took her to a nearby town, I wasnt speeding the whole trip and this is how im repaid a $473 bullshit ticket because everywhere else the 70 -> km/h is far enough away that you can let off the gas and slow down to the 70 but not here they were so close. For sure the cop new this and set up shop right there because it was the most rideculus thing ever.
Does anyone know anything about the new laws for disputing, as I think I personally talk to the judge on the phone now, or is it a 3 way call?
Also is that allowed to have the 70 -> km/h and 70 so close and is there not a buffer after the 70 which I should be allowed?
