I received a traffic citation last night and I was hoping you could help me understand a few things. My ticket was for Unlawful Speed (65mph in a 40mph), Statute 316.189 subsection (1), and occurred just outside the University of Miami, in Coral Gables.
1) The officer noticed my radar detector and quickly mentioned that he had obtained my speed by pacing me with his car. How well does this stand?
2) The infraction occurred on Ponce de Leon Blvd. I turned into UM to turn around and go back home (I did not know I was being followed), and I was pulled over at the intersection of Stanford Drive and Levante Avenue, two streets within the University. On the citation, after my registration info, under "UPON A PUBLIC STREET OR HIGHWAY, OR OTHER LOCATION, NAMELY:" the officer wrote "Stanford Dr + Levante Ave." However, this is NOT where the violation occurred, simply where I pulled over. I was not speeding on Stanford nor Levante. Did he fill the ticket out wrong?
3) Do you know if NY and FL have a reciprocity agreement? Namely, do Florida "points" have any affect (do they even show up) in NY? I live in New York, my tags and license are from NY as well.
Thank you for your time,
