I was cruising on I-81 at 70 mph (the speed limit) with my pregnant wife on 12/25/2011, and suddenly stopped by an officer, who hid himself behind trees, claiming that he saw a car at 83 mph on radar and it must be me since mine was the only car he found. I told him I had been cruising at 70, but he insisted that it is possible that the speed may reach 83 when driving downhills.
Here is my thoughts: 1) I have been driving extremely carefully because of my PREGNANT wife; 2) Cruising control is supposed to maintain the speed, and I have not seen the loss of control when cruising on my CRV 2011; 3) The traffic was light that morning because it was holiday, but there were definitely other cars (I have photos taken there when stopped by the officer). 4) Never meant to ruin my holiday with this
Criminal Defense Attorney
I would agree with the above poster, you might have a good defense. I would need to see what evidence the officer might have. Reckless driving is a serious charge, jail time is a possible sentence, among others. I highly recommend you contact an attorney.
