Question

Country: United States of America
State: Ohio

I was traveling on a two lane street with an officer driving toward me in the opposite direction. I made a right turn, when the officer pulled off the road and did a u turn, giving me a speeding ticket. I honestly do not believe I was doing 53 in a 35mph zone; I am going to court on Thursday, any suggestions on a defense for me?

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Illinois

ticket for 102mph, but cars governor stops at 94? can I beat this? What is the name of your state? Illinois I was coming home from work and saw some lights in my rear view. The police man came up and said get out of the car, put your hands on my hood. He said I was going over 40 mph over the speed limit and it was the same level of a crime as a DUI and I could go to jail. He then cuffed me and searched me and my car. Everything was clean, so he uncuffed me and let me go back to my car.When he came back with the ticket I asked him how fast I was going, he said when he clocked me I was going 94 and by the time he got up to me I was going 102. I told him that was funny because my car only goes up to 94 and has a governor from the factory that does not allow it to go faster. He said "well....my gun is calibrated" When I arrived home I noticed the ticket says "speeding 40 or more over the posted speed limit (102 in a 55 mph zone)\" also says "paced .5 mile equadraint(radar verified)" 1. shouldn't the ticket be written for the amount I was clocked for...94mph 2. my 1998 gmc truck does not go up to 102 mph, it is impossible. The governor kicks in at 94 mph and even if you floor it, will not go faster. 3. if they say fine, but you are still speeding at 94, which they can't prove, but if they say that, should my crime or fine be less because this is not over 40 mph over the speed limit 4. I think I have enough evidence that I do not need a lawyer, what should I do exactly? 5. Is it legal for him not to accept my bond card? Isn't that what they are for?
--- Also, he said he did not write down a court date and they will mail me the date, but my address on my id and ticket is not the same as my current address, he took down my current address on a seperate piece and said they will mail the date to me there.Then, when I read the ticket and envelope, it says if you want to plead not guilty, mail in the blue copy within 10 days. What do I do, mail in the copy or wait for the date to come in the mail? Thanks for your help and understanding,
