Any speeding ticket experts out there?
Well, yet again, I got pulled over. First time in well over a year though!
The cop said I was doing 61 in a 40, but the interesting thing is that he was going in the opposite direction as me. I was heading south and he was heading north. As soon as I passed him, he did a 180 and turned on the blues.
I was unaware that his radar could accurately calculate my speed since if I was in fact going 61mph and he was doing say 40mph, the radar would say 101mph. I asked the officer if the radar was tied into the speedometer system, but he seemed to dance around the question...saying he could get my speed via radar whether I was going towards or away.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Is the radar system tied into the speedometer, or did he just subtract the his current speed from what the radar displayed in order to "calculate" my speed?
I answered the ticket with "Not Guilty", but would appreciate any advice you "speeding ticket experts" can give. My only defense (other than if I get some more info on the radar system) is that there was also a car in front of me, which may have been in the radars line of sight.
