the V1 was in the bimmer, and plus this wasnt on a major highway...it was a 4 lane surface street where ive never seen state police patrol, since only state police can use radar in PA...im always looking for VASCAR....

surely the courts carnt act upon just his WORD! they need physical proof, like a recorded speed on the gun or on a vasca unit.... if your 100% sure you were doing less than writen on the ticket then contest it as you may get off totaly....

The fact he wouldn't let you see the speed because he "erased it" might be helpful. Good luck. At least you have free legal resources. :thumbs

actually they can. most of the time it's just their word vs yours. the judges have to believe the cops, unless its something completely outrageous, because if they didnt the cops really wouldnt have any authority.

Fatty, if you ever come to the US, I do recomend coming to Miami. You can get your pasty English skin tanned, and check out Active Autowerkes at the same time. I live about 45 min. from AA, pending on how heavy my foot is. I can also hook you up on hotel rooms at Marriots around the country, so let me know what you want to do.
