Re: Disputing a Speeding Ticket Based Upon a Tracking App
So, you already confessed to speeding…You just want to argue how flagrantly you were violating the speed law? BTW, cruise controls have a margin of error of a few mph – if it is an older model it could be even more. They are not accurate enough to be admissible as evidence in court.
You need to do some more research. What you have read is wrong.
Police radars have to be certified accurate thru laboratory testing and further shown to be accurate at the time of use thru user testing – usually using tuning forks for radar – in order to be court admissible as evidence. Can you show your “ap” to be accurate thru scientific means??? Police radars take measurements measured in gigahertz – meaning many thousands of readings per second. You “ap” likely uses GPS readings – taken anywhere between 5 to 30 seconds between readings – to calculate an average speed you were traveling between those readings. Since most cars can accelerate 0-60 in less than 10 seconds, your “ap” would be off on your max speed by a good 20-30 mph.
Completely irrelevant to your speed violation and will have no bearing in court.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
