My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: California
Hello all, been reading these forums for a bit now, decided to register and see all the opinions here.
I was cited for CVC 22349(a).
I wasn't expecting much, but I believe this cop was nervous, I started asking him questions and he relayed some info to me regarding the situation -
He told me that I was in the #1 lane behind a silver car which he told me was doing 72mph with his LIDAR unit, and then told me i was doing 85mph with LIDAR reading. Then I proceeded to switch into the #2 lane.
Now, at this point I noticed a cop on the underpass of the 118W throw something into his trunk (LIDAR unit) and proceed to run into his car and pursue me.
During the stop, i asked the officer when his last calibration was done to his hand-held LIDAR unit. He responded with a delay saying January 23 2009.
-edit - also the officer put 80mph down as my speed approx. in the box where they fill out this information.
My ticket is due 12/15/2009, any help would be great! - Thanks.
