i beat a speeding ticket couple of years back by trial by declaration. Its ironic, i was test driving a 335i and just went a little crazy, lol. At one point i was doing 130 mph but then by the time i got caught i was doin 80 or so...got hit with an 80 in a 65 mph zone. Actually, traffic was pretty heavy at the time and i was doing that speed in order to get around a bunch of trucks to make the exit. The cop actually caught me just before the 65 mph zone though, so i dunno why he wrote down 80 in a 65. But i did trial by declaration and got my money back and no points!
