My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: New York.
Greetings and Thank You in advance, wonderful site!
The speed limit on that road is 35mph, i was going maybe 25-30 tops, the road is really bad in this area and i have a heavy German car with low profile tires which would have exploded at a faster speed, i have lost 2 tires already from the crappy roads in two seperate incidents and have since been extra careful. He pulls me over 5 blocks down the line after i had stopped at 2 red lights, having left Yonkers and now being in Bronx borough. I guess they were not sure if they wanted to bother or not, i rather wish they had not...
He said i was driving a bit fast, which i wasnt, and wrote me up a ticket in violation of 1180A, but he spelled my first name wrong and the speed at which i was travelling is not indicated anywhere on the ticket, neither is the speed limit. He did not use a radar or laser, charge is based on visual/sound, but i drive a very special car and she growls even at low RPMs so i guess i see how it could have appeared that i was messing about.
I have had 2 speeding tickets in the past year, i pleaded guilty to both and paid up because i really was speeding (85mph+), but this one is complete bull. I am worried that my license will get suspended if i just plead guilty and pay, they will probably not believe me since i am a repeat offender, i had my license suspended once a few years back for street racing - it was a one shot deal and i paid almost a thousand bucks in fines
Please tell me what i can do to prove that i am not guilty and if the fact that there is no speed indicated on the ticket works to my benefit in any way, or if they were out of their jurisdiction, they are Yonkers PD and they stopped me in the Bronx two blocks past the border...
