question
 
So a friend got busted by the cops tonight, after hwy 1 connecting to surrey while slowly decelerating...

that area speed limit is 60km i think since there is no signs, anyhow the cop pulled him over and said he was doing 100, 120, 130 (exactly wat the cop said after reviewing the dash cam)
And he was definitely not going that fast, he has the dash cam speed 78-80km.

Now the cops threaten to tow his car away giving him a heavy fine ya da ya da

He has a radar detector and it never went off, so cops dont have the proof
At the end he wrote a ticket of $190 dollar fine, and he threatens if he disputes he is going to find every single evidence to take away his license (he is a class 5). He claims he get paid double when he attends the court, so he is gonna make sure he comes if he disputes


first of all the cop is obviously trying to scare him and bs his way thru, he was waiting at the intersection while he drove past him. THe question is can he dispute? or no chance of him winning since the cop is going to try to screw him over

Heresay information from a friend who wants to get off a speeding ticket he deserves is hardly unbiased. Even he tells you he was speeding. You were not there, did not see what happened, did not know how or where your friend was speeding or how the speed readings were obtained (maybe Laser or by being paced?). Playing his dashcam showing him speeding (don't know how he did that?) in court is as smart an idea as choosing to speed in the first place. Your friend hasn't learned his lesson yet. Maybe he will actually learn from this event, although so far we don't see signs of that.

Your friend admitted he was speeding. He got one of the lower fines for speeding. Why dispute.
He got caught, it happens.....just man up and pay the fine and stop wasting the cops time.

Very seldomly do I side with the cops but your friend is "the problem" when it comes to disputing tickets.

Oh his radar detector didn't go off? Yup, He's innocent for sure!!!

there must have been a reason why the cop made the above statements your buddy "alleged". I am sure your buddy threw a few statements towards the cop. I would be interested to know how the WHOLE conversation went down.

I can't really give you useful advice, but I sincerely hope that if your buddy does dispute it, the police officer keeps every promise he made.

So...your buddy got a ticket which his dashcam actually proves. So then he gets pissed at the attitude of the cop because he was breaking the law, and thinks about disputing the ticket he knows is valid because he's pissed that the cop threatened to hit him with more (debatably valid) charges.


...yep, your buddy's sure on solid ground :badpokerface:

He needs a major seismic upgrade...but he's not a LMD school....so he's out of luck. :failed:

Realistically your buddy got the fine for what he deserved..

$196 ticket for "Speeding" which is 1-39km over the limit. Pay it in the first week or two (IIRC) and you get afew bucks off. And you don't have to hassle with the cop if you do end up disputing it.

Spoiler!
