some...Porshe Got me a speeding ticket...
 
I'm Driving my cousin home from work and im sitting at a red light on a road posted to be 40mph..a silver Porsche Cayenne pulls up next to me when the light turns greens he guns it....i just accelerate to 40-45 around the bend there is a cop that pulls the Porsche over and flags me down stating he caught me on lidar going 58 mph.... naturally i state i was going no more then 45 and trying to tell him it was the god damn Porsche.. he just takes my license and registration and comes back and hands me a ticket for $180 on the ticket ESTIMATED AND IDAR are checked off...

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

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.

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.

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.

The cop pulled out and had it lights on but went for the porshe as I passed he was pointing at me vigourously lol for me to pull over....and I live in massachussetts they have a designated court officer ....my tax dollars at work...

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

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.
