My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Florida.
On November 14th, 2017 while on my way home from work, I was pulled over on a toll road for allegedly speeding (81 in a 65). The officer alleged that he clocked me while he was moving in the westbound lanes and while I was eastbound. Upon being pulled over I told him that he was mistaken and that there is no way I was going that fast, that it must have been another vehicle around me. There were plenty of other cars both westbound and east bound. I told him that my cruise was set to 69 and in fact I was slowing down for the toll booth which was about a 1/4 mile ahead. He didn't want to hear any argument.
The distance he supposedly clocked me at was well beyond 200 feet. From what I can read the stalker dual radar becomes way less accurate at distances over 120 feet, because the radar beam spreads out considerably beyond that distance. Also, I have a app that tracks everything I do, and shows the time I left work, got onto the toll road, stopped for the 9 min while getting the ticket, and the continued drive home. All the times match up with the time of the ticket and it shows my top speed of 71mph. Not once did I come close to 81. Also, the transponder from the toll booth matches my app as well as my ticket. Also, I'm a CDL holder, and on the ticket it states that I do not hold a CDL.
So, to sum it up.....times match, speeds show top speed of 71, distance for the radar gun is beyond it's optimal targeting distance, and we have the inaccuracies on the ticket. So, do you think this ticket is beatable? Court is this Thursday.
