Cops

Ok so I got a ticket for doing 43 in a 25. But the cop who got me with his radar isn't the cop who pull me over. Another cop pulled me over 3 blocks away. Is that even allowed

Ya it was probably a speed sting. One cop hides with a radar gun and more cops sit up ahead when the one with the radar gun catches someone he radios your cars info to the other cops sucks I know

Perfectly legal. If you're lucky, they'll drop it down to 15 over.

Yeah, unfortunately there's not much you can do to contest something like that. I think in most states, 15+ is a reckless. I'd set a court date, go in, and see if they will drop it under 15 if you agree to traffic school and the original fine.

The ticket is only 105 so ill just pay it. I was more pissed about how he just said he didn't radar me someone else did. Bc for all I no that other just guessed my speed bc when I passed the cop who pulled me over I was only 35

I know they use elaborate, multi-vehicle stings all over the place up here. Heck, I have even seen airplanes/pavement markings used to tag people. Kind of sucks, but what do you do.

That's an insanely low fine. What's the official charge on the citation?

Well the only reason I was speeding was bc I was riding the gas up the hill then coasted from the too at 35 an the cop was at the bottom with the radar. So when he asked why I was speeding and I told him I coasted from the top of the hill he looked at me and said its impossible for such thing
