My 17 year received a ticket for doing 90 in a 40. We dont think the radar was accurate. I know it is hard to prove. Someone told us to bond it over to state court because sometimes they are a little more lenient. He admitted to speeding, but on that small stretch of road, both curvy and hilly and considering the vehicle he was driving he could have have been going that fast. I'm all for teaching him a lesson on speeding, but I think this is excessive. The police officer also wrote down that my son nose dived to 63. The police officer was on a motorcyle coming toward him, but behind a hill. There was also a small power plant there - could that have caused some sort of interference? They will take his license regardless, but I'm more worried about insurance for the next 7 years.
If you have not bound it over yet ... don't. there is always a possibility that something can get worked out in city courts. You child is looking at losing that license for at least year on this and the super-speeder fine. Call me to discuss further if you wish.
I agree with attorney Davis' answer.
Every case varies depending on the law and the facts. Because questions often fail to disclose important facts, these 'answers' cannot and should not be relied upon as a replacement for a full or complete review of an actual case by a retained attorney. It is axiomatic that one only 'gets what they pay for', and this is one of those situations where such a phrase generally applies.
