    Post Error on Speeding Ticket - Do I Have a Chance to Fight?

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: California

    I was pulled over, the cop told me he had to go 80 to catch up to me (he didnt use a radar) but he came from way behind me...I was going around 70 maybe 75....he wrote on the ticket excess of 65 aprox 80 mph....

    BUT...this is where it gets interesting..i was designated driver so i was driving a friends car, clearly not registered to me. He checked the box that said that the registered owner or lesee of the car was same as driver...which is not true. Can I fight this ticket since the vehicle is not registered to me??

    You can fight the ticket but the registration is immaterial.

    It seems to me that your cop is not too smart. If he had to do 80 to catch you, he never would have done so if you were driving 80.

    I believe you should be able to discredit him since he obviously did not "pace" you, but rather approached you and pulled you over.

    I'm assuming he charged you with VC22349(a). Right?

    I think you have a very good chance if you can discredit the cop. You can simply ask him how long he paced you for (i.e. followed you while matching your speed). I believe there is a standard minimum distance, maybe someone knows what it is and can tell us. Just don't say that you were only going 70 - 75.
