How do I prove I was not speeding?
Question by zero_eden_delmo: How do I prove I was not speeding?
I just received a speeding ticket for 40 in a 30mph zone. I do not believe I was speeding. I was riding my motorcycle and stopped for a stop sign when a left accelerated and turned “I was in first gear”. When I straightened out, I moved up into second gear and went to a cruising speed. I saw the officer approaching me from in front. I noticed he did a U turn rather quickly in my mirror. So, I pulled over around a corner just a few feet away just in case. He pulled up behind me and came out, asked for my information. I really didn’t think he was going to give me a ticket. But, he came back with one for 10 over. I asked him why. He said and I quote. “I didn’t see you but I heard your bike. He said the radar had me at 40mph.
This whole ordeal took place within seconds and a matter of feet. I have been driving my motorcycle sense I was 16. I have NEVER gotten a ticket. I don’t speed. Cops scare the blank out of me. I feel like all I can do is keep my head down and do my best to stay out of the way. “Yet even that isn’t enough to protect myself from them.”
I am turning 25 next month if I kept my driving record clean my insurance would have gone down ALLOT. I drive safe so I can keep my insurance down.
The cop knew I had never gotten a ticket and knew I was turning 25 next month. He probably just did it to be a jerk.
What can I do? I really need help. I did nothing wrong.
I feel victimized and that there is nothing I can do to protect myself from them.
I asked the officer if he was going to come to court he said no. Bruce like I said, I saw the cop do a reckless U-turn so I turned around the next turn and pulled to the side just in case. Isn’t that what you are so post to do? Or dose following the rules imply gilt as-well. What you are saying is no matter what everyone is guilty no matter what. What happen to innocent until proven guilty? The America you live in is not the one I believe in. I dont ever want to be apart of you’re America.
I just said that out of anger. No one is really providing me with any help though. The question was “How do I prove I was not speeding” after all.
