Default Any hints on how to beat a speeding ticket???

I got pulled over for doing 75 in a 70 on US-23 by a State cop. He wrote a warning for tinted windows and told me I wouldn't get any points for 5 0ver on and expressway. I seen him coming up behind me about a 1/2 mile away...as he got closer I moved over to the slow lane. My speedo was on 70 or less the whole time. He flew past me, then slowed down and drove next to me for a few seconds then lit me up.

I already had my speed-o-meter calibrated at Specmo. Any ideas on how I can convince or present my argument to the cop to throw out the ticket since I don't believe I was speeding?

If he was using radar ive heard u can ask for current records for calibration, and if they cant produce them u get off. However if they used laser ur screwed. Either way u have a 50/50 chance of him not showing and getting off that way too...

yea, 5 over on an interstate is 0 points now...but its still a moving violation and my insurance could still count that against me. A non-moving violation or not being violated at all is my goal!

That tint thing is a whole differnt story...I think its a bunch of crap that you can't have any tint in MI. How else can I hide my beer if my windows aren't tinted.

That's only if your insurance company constantly checks your record. 0 points should not affect your insurance, unless you're shopping for new insurance.

If you weren't speeding, setup an informal hearing.

True! I "ain't" lookin' for new insurance so hopefully they "ain't" lookin' at me.

I called the court for an informal hearing. They are setting a date and sending me a post card in the mail "The weather is great, wish you were here....and by the way, show up for court in July". They said I get to chat up the cop before the hearing then we go in front of a magistrate.
