I got an excessive speeding ticket 5 months ago and now my court date is this monday. I have been checking out books on how to get out of it. I am fighting it because when I asked the cop whether he had calibrated the gun prior to clocking my speed - he became angry and said that I can't ask him that question. So - I wouldn't have minded to pay the ticket if he would have said yes to my question but something seems suspicious. Plus - i was going only 2 km's over the normal speeding ticket margin thus making it excessive. I think that I will at least ask the judge to lessen it to a regular speeding ticket if all else fails because I was so close.
Any advice? Never fought a ticket. I have checked out alot of the posts here but haven't found enough. Maybe someone can forward me to a specific post.
Thanks a bunch. And if all you are going to say is just stop being a baby and pay the ticket - then screw you.
Fight the good fight.
Thanks a lot folks
