My friend was driving with me in the back passanger seat when we got pulled over, with the police officer alleging we were going 81 in a 55 mile an hour zone. The police officer was driving towards us and told us he clocked us with the radar going 81.
This hapened in Oregon about 10 miles from Klamath Falls area. When the police officer filled out the ticket, he misspeled my friend's name, skipping a leter from the name.
1) Is that sufficient ground for the dismissal of the ticket, as the name on the ticket does not match the name on his driver license?
2) Also the whole time I had MS Streets program opened with the GPS device, with the program showing the speed, and the speed it was displaying was less than the speed on the ticket. Can the printout fromt he program be used as a proof that we were actually driving less that what the police officer recorded?
3) Also, the way the officer wrote some numbers on the ticket, they look like different numbers, for example 2 looks almost like 7, can it be argued that just as the offices is unable to correctly write numbers so he incorrectly read the speed of the radar gun, or is this a too farfetched argument?
