I just received a speeding ticket in Missouri, I was speeding but not as fast as the police officer clocked me at. I felt I was forced to speed up because the police car was tailgating me (I could not tell it was a police car because it didn't have lights or anything). I was trying to get in the right lane but there was a car next to me so I had to speed up to get over, then the police officer was following so close that I was afraid to slow down. Is this entrapment?
I'm worried because I was speeding before he got behind me although it was not at the speed he clocked me at. I feel that I would not have been going as fast if the officer had not been so close to me.
I probably won't be able to completely get rid of the fine since I was going over the speed limit, I think it will be lowered though. My question is do I have a case to sue the officer? or the police department? how does that work? If I don't win but the case is "settled" would I still get money? Do I need some sort of evidence to sue?
