I was on the highway-60MPH zone, I was going about 66, wnt down a hill, then an unmarked state trooper pulls me over. I got a ticket for 71 in 60. His radar has never been calibrated, would I have any way of fighting for myself? I got the car less than a week ago and I'm not accostomed to the new spped.

How do you know this? Fight it but i dont think it will matter. Regardless of if you are used to the speed or not that isnt something a judge is going to consider as a viable reason for speeding. Thats like someone that just got a ferrari saying they arent used to the speed so that why they were doing 160 in a 70.

I doubt a judge will care if you were going 66 vs 71. There are people on the board that'll tell you to suck it up and take it as a lesson to drive slower. Others will advise you to take it to court and hope the judge has pity on you. If that's your case- don't say you weren't used to the speed. You'd be digging your own grave. You could say that you noticed your speedometer said 66 so you planned on slowing down before the cop caught you but it's up to you. If I were in your shoes, I'd go to court and suck up.

If you do take it to court, lie. Say, I wasnt going over 63, 64 at the time and you were just following the rest of the traffic...best case scenario, if you contest it he wont show up. Your best bet is to get as many extensions as possible.. max them out hopefully until the holidays. It gives the cop a chance to think he doesnt remember that well what happened and he might not show.

on top of all the speeding mess, it gets worse! Since I have had the car for 4 days I don't yet have insurance on it. Minn requires insurence-on the back of a ticket price sheet it mentions criminal charges or revokation of licence if no proof of insurance exists. Plus, I'm 18!

And the trooper was the stereotypical get you for anything, hard-jerk, annd will probably show up in court.

I knew it was uncalabrated because I asked.
