  • need some advice 83 in 55 but it wasnt REALLY ME!!

    ok so this is what happend i was i 64 in va and i was on cruise control going 60 in 55 then this 2007 pontiac g8 comes speeding up behind me so i get on the outer lane (its a 4 lane road) and as soon as he passes me we pass a cop hiding where the median splits. the pontiac quickly brakes but keeps going and i keep doing my regular 60 when the cop comes behind me and pulls me over. what BS!!! what should i do? i been reading these forums and also "waht to do in court" article. but i wanted to see if theres maybe something else i can do? thanks

    Just showing up and honestly telling your story will get you out of up to 30% of tickets. And will reduce others.

    Be respectful, show up, and explain you were not speeding etc.

        What's BS about it? You admit you had your cruise control set at 60 in a 55 mph zone. It was merely a roll of the dice who the cop went after, as both of you were apparently speeding. So it was you.

        Some cops are so particular about their positions that they will stop and cite speeding tickets for that little of an amount over the speed limit. While they may seem picayune, the ticket is legally enforceable and you either must pay it or fight it.

        If you go into court and tell your story as you told it here, you will be laughed out of court. You cannot explain that you had your cruise control set to 60 in 55 mph zone and then follow up by stating it's BS that the cop stopped your for speeding because it wasn't you who was speeding.
