How to Beat a Speeding Ticket in Any California City
Here is an interesting scenario out of Northern California regarding how to beat a speeding ticket. A gentleman was traveling at about 85 miles per hour on the highway. He knew that there were two spots up ahead where CHP officers ‘hide’ and wait for the unsuspecting speeders to race by. This man reduced his speed prior to passing the ‘hiding’ officers but, to his dismay, the CHP squad car pulled out and turned its lights on even though he had slowed to 65 miles per hour. When the officer approached his car, the gentleman asked why he was being pulled over. The officer responded that it was because the gentleman was traveling close to 85 miles per hour. The gentleman rebutted stating that he was only going 65 miles per hour. The officer then informed the driver that an aircraft had clocked him at 85 miles per hour a few miles back. “Wow,” the driver thought to himself, “how am I going to beat this speeding ticket?”.
Well little did he know that he was actually in a pretty good position to beat this speeding ticket. The way that the aircraft ‘clocked’ him was by clocking the time it took the gentleman’s car to travel between two fixed points on the ground. Although math doesn't lie, there are a few points that should be examined in this scenario. First and most important, because two officers were involved in giving this citation, both must show up for court. If either officer does not show up, the gentleman’s case is dismissed. If the driver gets the case postponed, there is an even more likely chance that both officers will not show up. Secondly, being caught by an officer in an aircraft is a bit of a slippery slope. If one reads the law carefully he may be able to beat his speeding ticket. Consider this:
“40800. (a) A traffic officer on duty for the exclusive or main purpose of enforcing the provisions of Division 10 (commencing with Section 20000) or 11 (commencing with Section 21000) shall wear a full distinctive uniform, and if the officer while on duty uses a motor vehicle, it must be painted a distinctive color specified by the commissioner.”
What are the chances the officer in the aircraft was in full uniform? How about the aircraft itself, would it be considered a motor vehicle? Was it painted a distinctive color as specified by the commissioner? These are all valid points that can lead some to beat a speeding ticket before some judges.
