Angry Dick Police Stirke Again!! Help!!!!!!!



Well i got my FIRST speeding ticket one SATURDAY!!
allow me to start this story, i was picking up food for my mom at this CROATIAN bar place, on tomken, and as i was leaving this cop starts eyein me!!
as i drove by him he just gave me a HUGE STARE DOWN!!!
so as i was driving down TOMKEN i wasn't speeding that bad probably around 85 and it was a 60 zone i beleive!!
so ANYWAYS, i kept lookin in my rear view mirror and i didn't see any police, then as i was about to make a LEFT onto COURTNEYPARK i signaled and all and the light was red, so as i look in my mirror i see the cop FLY UP to the light looked like he was in a rush, so i notice its the SAME COP from the CROATIAN BAR, and he was still eyeing me, i thought nothing of it cause he was in the fast lane and i was in the turning lane!!
so as the light turns green i make a LEFT and he cuts off some guy in the turning lane and gets behind me, i knew what was gonna happen next, he busts on the lights and i pull over, he asks me for liscence and all and asks me why i was coming from the BAR!! asks me if i knew how fast i was going, i said no i was paying attention to the road!!
so then he tells me i was doing 90 in a 60 zone!!
and he asks me if i've ever been in trouble with the law, i answered NO, and then he comes back with a ticket for doing 10km/h OVER!!!!!!!!
saying i did 70 in a 60 zone and its only a 50 doller fine!!
well, what to do, i'm gonna go fight it cause i won't let him win cause he was just being a DICK!!!
but i wanna know what i can say!!
cause i can't have this ticket my insurance will SKY ROCKET if i loose, HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

go to court, and ask to see when the radar was calibrated, if its past a year then you are free, and if he fails to show the papers your good to go...good luck!

thank marecar for that tip

It was an experience just like this that turned me into the pig-hater that I am today Dont get me wrong, we have beaten the good cop/bad cop topic to death here and I think we all know that the type of pigs that pull stunts like this ARE NOT the same cops that bust drug dealers and put murderers behind bars.

but back OT, You my friend must go to a first appearance meeting, they will most likely drop it all together if you dont have any previous convictions.
This pig has just screwed you. He has no proof of how fast you were going but check the bottom right of your ticket. Did he mark it with a big "R"? This means he REDUCED the speed that he allegedly caught you at , thus the prosecutor will be hesitant to lower it when it comes time to meet the judge.
If it comes down to you vs. him in front of a judge (dont worry it never does) he will lie, he may accuse you of driving erratically or at EXTREME speeds.

sorry this happened to you.. you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Someting like that happened to me, I was FLYING along dixie on the bridge over the 401. and when I was almost over, what did I see? a cruiser comming off the highway! I was like, OH SHIT, So I hammered the brakes till I got down to 70, and I stayed on the limit, the crusier pulled around two cars, and right up on my ass, "I was thinking oh shit, he got me for sure" but I made a right and pulled into Husky (where I worked at the time) and he didn't follow.... whew. talk about lucky. (knock on wood)

When they follow you like that, they’re running your plate, and checking the drivers’ license of the owner of the car. And if they’re being thorough, will see if the driver matches the description of the owner. If the owner of the car &/or the plate of the car have any questionable history, or arn't the owner of the car, get ready for the red lights.

Sorry, but you "weren't speeding too badly, around 85 in a 60 zone?"

What do you consider badly, if not nearly 50% over the speed limit?

Sorry bud, but having the ticket already knocked down to 10 Km/h over is lucky for you. Pay the $50 and get on with it.

fight the ticket, you'll probably win anyway, the cop more than likely wont show up for a $50 ticket. Even if you lose, it's only $50, i wish my tickets were only $50, mine were over $300

Dude, why were you mad at the cop? You broke the law, and now you have to face the consequences. Why would you speed right after you saw a cop anyway??

Just go schedule a firt appearance meeting. It'll be quick and painless, they'll probably drop it in there.
