I am from Nevada and was traveling to the Bay area on the weekend when Hot august nights ended.
There was a lot of traffic coming down the mountain, cars around me and so on. I am cruising along the right lane when all of the sudden I see a CHP patrol car on an overpass pointing a radar/lidar gun towards me.
I check my speed and I am going a little over 75, but the car next to me was going faster.
Sure enough I get pulled over...but the way I got pulled over makes it seem like a speed trap.
The patrol car is on the overpass, and as soon as I pass the onramp the patrol SUV pulls in and pulls me back out. He told me I was tagged 1,500 feet before the overpass.
Now I think this is a speed trap, because officer X tagged me, but officer Y gave me the ticket. He wrote me for speeding, wrote the vcv number but I forget the actual number, and under gun/radar section he wrote a number.
Any thoughts on how to fight it? I am from Nevada and this happened in California by a CHP.I feel it was a speed trap because 5 other cars were pulled over within minutes of me.
