Re: some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...

lidar only works on one vehicle at a time so he could onyl get one of you from it, not both. seems like he got the porsche and estimated your speed based off the porsche. i love Pennsylvania, LIDAR is illegal and local PD can only use VASCAR and ENRADD

Re: some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...

You can't laser two vehicles at the same time. He either clocked the Porsche or you. Not both. I would def. fight that one.

I remember a group of friends got stopped in a group on their bikes. One cop handed 7 guys tickets for going 83 in a 55. They went to court and fought it on the basis that he can't clock 7 moving objects at once. The judge threw all the tickets out.


lol. Svenska beat me to it.

Re: some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...

alright so I can go to court stating that the officer pulled 2 vehicles over, stated we were going the same speed as each other...using a lidar gun that can only detect one vehicle at a time..... so it would be impossible.

Re: some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...

If it were here, the cop would be writting you for drag racing. Cop assumptions usually win in court here also. But the 180 dollar part sucks

Damn Porsche Cayannes. I always run into a burgundy one during my AM commute. I think she's learned to back off by now.

Never let a cop flag you down. That's asking for it. Defend yourself in court or maybe the officer will no-show.

If a cop was pulling someone over, and pointed at me to pull over... I'm driving off into the sunset.

Re: some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...

If he pulled over the porsche and had enough time to get out of his vehicle and enough time to get your attention to pull you over that tells me you couldn't have been going as fast as he says....
Take it to court. Tell the judge that there is no way you could have been going that fast that quickly....say "it's a jeep, not a porsche"....lol

x2. I was on an interstate when I saw a motorcycle cop finishing up with somebody. He peeked at his gun then pointed at me. Yeah right! Went over the hill, took the next exit, & ducked into a hotel parking lot until I saw him pass. Unless I see lights in my rear view mirror, I'm outta there.

But designated court officer or not, you still have a good case & the right to defend yourself.
