any speed registers on the radar, man......c'mon.....
there was no proof that the OP was going exactly 30mph.....
even after all this bullshit, there is a good chance that you can fight it in court and get it dismissed....
never seen a cop write "35+" on a ticket without verification from a radar.
unless he was trained in a radar course and can judge the speed of a car based on training without a radar (doubt it though).
cops typically turn their dash cams on AFTER the lights have been activated - it's a wireless box that is attached to your duty belt.
once you activate the overheads, it send a signal to your audio and video equipment to turn on
but at any time, the officer can turn his camera on if he wishes. not likely though....
also, the OP is telling us he was driving perfectly safe - if he was or not is a completely different story.
on the internet, people ALWAYS abide by the law......
in conclusion: fight it, you have a solid chance of winning
Litos knows how to read my posts between the lines all too well
I agree with everything you said. Guilty or not he should definitely fight the ticket.
