If you're planning on disputing the offence (21+ km/hr over the posted speed limit), do so but be ready with a solid defence if the officer used a speed measuring device such as laser or radar.
thank you for your reply.
I'm pretty sure speed measuring device was not used.
(I should've asked but did not)
I was perpendicular to him when I traveled through intersection, and when he pulled me over 3~4 blocks away, I was traveling pretty close to 50 or below due to the traffic.
do you guys ever issue 20+ ticket when speed measuring device is not used?
ps. if office can't prove that I was doing 20+, does ticket gets thrown out?
