I was driving and going down a hill and a cop was at the bottom and gave me a ticket for speeding. so isnt that illegal because you pick up speed when going down hill
The speed limit is the limit. If you gained speed as a result of the hill, you had a duty to apply your brakes and reduce speed to comply with the law.
That being said you may have other defenses available to you with regards to the measuring devices employed by the police in this situation.
You should check with an attorney in your area to see what is available.
