Speeding Ticket Question



So just got a speeding ticket but im obviously going to fight it, but i do have a question. So the officer was sitting in his car gunning and caught me, but he followed me literally about 2 full blocks and i even cut through a parking lot, before he gave me the speeding ticket for the original spot where he caught me...

Now tbh that doesnt sound right because everytime ive ever gotten a speeding ticket it was right on the spot, probably because they were speed traps but this doesnt seem right..

Can anyone shed some light on the situation? And some proof, because i read that a cop can mail you a ticket theough your license plate but thats very rare and you can fight against that, thats why im curious to this

I would like to know know this as well. I've seen cops step into traffic to pull people over for tickets and almost get hit. Never seen a cop follow someone for blocks then hand a ticket over lol.

Happens a lot while the cop runs your plate. I don't see anything wrong with it.

There is no set time limit the cop has to pull you over, if your hoping to get out of it because of that. Get a paralegal if you think you have a case.

If your paralegal can get it completely dropped than get one but if he's gonna get you a deal like lower the fine and take the points out, you can go that yourself.

You can walk into the court room and the prosecutor will offer you to lower it to 15 over the limit with no points and a $45 dollar fine.

Points and lower fine mean nothing. Still a ding in the eyes of insurance. Get it dropped or don't bother at all =\

Not a ding if it's a 15km over. It's no points and not reported to insurance. Talked to my brother in law, he's an opp traffic cop. Said the guy ran your plate for warrants. Was checking if you were getting a ticket or a ride downtown.

^ yeah if you've been arrested before, or are politically active or associate with someone that is (even though our rights say no guilt by association - serach Profunc) there could've been some reading material for him

I hear these days you can talk with a crown the very day you submit the ticket to plead not guilty, and they' lower it / reduce it - they just want the money

Not true. I caught going 23 over. He put it to a 10 over ticket. Still a report on my insurance paying for a dumb ticket >_<

Well he is wrong. Any conviction shows on your driver abstract an this is what insurance companies use. It's considered a minor offense and your insurance premium will go up. When/if they find out about it.

The whole points thing is BS. Only effect it has is getting your license suspended.

Yup. Insurance sees and adjusts rates for small tickets.

Just like everyone stated, a conviction is a conviction. Even if you get 0 points and 10-15km/h over, it's still considered a speeding ticket and you can enjoy the insurance increase

GUYS GUYS GUYS lets make this very easy for him.


File your ticket at the court office...for a trial date....request a copy of DISCLOSURE be sent to your adress or PICK it up when it becomes available.

read the disclosure it will state any and all evidence the officer has against you.

If the cop caught you on laser gun then there will be a COPY of the print out.

Then based on THAT you can decide if you want to proceed with the matter on your own on trial date OR have legal representation (agent, etc..)
