So you weren't arrested for a DUI. Well, 74 is still well above the speed limit so you're good for the speeding ticket.
I am licensed attorney in Washington and California who focuses Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Interesting. Do you have a lawyer helping you?

You can definitely hire a traffic attorney to help you with this case, you are likely facing a misdemeanor speeding charge (due to the speed). Not every agency has dash cams, the lawyer you hire should request the camera data and get it if possible. The lawyer can also investigate the other legal issues you raise in your question regarding the searches.
This answer is not legal advice, it may not even be relevant to the question answered, it definitely is does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
