Just pay it and buy a radar detector before you speed infront of a cop again. If your not planning on speeding infront of a cop for a while you dont need the detector. Its a trooper not a state/city cop. He will be in court. They have dedicated court days. Just it up and pay it. If there is a traffic school option take it.

I know in my state state police and state troopers are the same thing. I actually belive they phased out all troopers

i dont recommend paying it, i recommend you fight it in court, you must have a good defense, and btw it will take you a couple of tickets before you get the hang of things in court, yer first time they will prob tear you apart. The calibration thing is hard, it requires alot of patience and as chuck said they group tickets together so the cop doesnt just come for one ticket at a time. You prob have a 20% chance he doesnt show and the laws may be tototally different from where i live so i dont know if the calibration thing will work, here the radar units arent recognized unless they can prove them to be working "thats the short version summed up, highway traffic act doesnt have mention of the unit, or atleast didnt used too), thus you sorta start off with a defense when using the calibration thing. Not to mention the cop is gonna obv say he did his morning tests on the unit, you can though argue (get the manufactures instructions, there gonna make it as difficult as possible to get productions in full also) on the basis he prob doesnt remember the steps required to do it. I have no idea about what you said with the insurance and not having it, you got a ticket for that? Your screwed on that front, here you can get away with the insurance ticket if you goto court and produce a document from your insurance company stating that on the date of the ticket you were infact insured. But i do agree with chuck that you should get a radar detector, especially if your 18... your alot more likely to speed and it will kill your insurance rates (if they report convictions to insurance companies there) alot more than a 40 year old with a good driving record. You may also have the option to try to talk it out before your case starts, do 20 hours community service and/or charitable donation to some city or state office) and some driver education course (pick some cheap ass driving school and take a class and get some cert) and show this and say "would you consider dropping the charges in light of the community service, donation, and driving school".

And I don't recommend fighting it in court. Written declaration... THEN if you lose Trial de Novo. Basically you get to fight it in court after. You're getting 2 trys. Most cops won't even fight written declaration because they don't get paid to write something and send it in. If you take it to court they car schedule it on their day off and make double time. Now you tell me...would you rather not get paid and do work, or get paid double time?

If you pop people going downhill doing 11 MPH over the speed limit then you need to get out more often.

I'll usually have my tickets handled by a traffic attorney. May cost more in the end, but I hate traffic school (already been a few times) and I can't get anymore points for another 3 months. The one time I represented myself in court I ended up getting 3 points for a careless driving citation and had to take traffic school for a 20 MPH over. Had to write a check to the court house that day for over $600, still had 3 points, and also had to take a 4 hr. traffic school. <_< Last time I represent myself.

Don't be an ass, he already explained he wasn't "accostomed" to it. :monkey:

Funny. I thought we had speedometers in these cars? Beyond that, "I am not used to the car so I decided to speed". Derrrrrrrrr

If you are not used to a vehicle you do not speed with it. :monkey: :monkey: :monkey:

:unsure: That's like saying if you're not used to a chick you shouldn't tag the hell out of her... I fail to see your logic.

Then again, you are a douche transporter so views can vary based on experiences.

The "i was getting used to the new car" for speeding excuse is kinda comical at this point. Spedometers don't give a ball park figure, so it's really hard to use that as a viable excuse in court. I know when I drove my grandpa's boxster, I didn't hit 120 on the highway cause I wasn't used to the "power"(i am speaking relatively with the volvo haha). from personal experience and from other people telling me stories, anywhere 5 miles per hour over the speed limit you should expect to get pulled over unless in traffic where everybody is cruising. It sucks, yes, but hit shappens.
