Theres different types of radar and now cops are are using laser speed finders. If you have a valentine one and its newer it should have gotten those. Your best bet is to find a lawyer that deals with traffic tickets and will do it for free. They take it to court for you and then get it knocked down to a parking ticket. No points no insurance price hike. The speedo on most cars has a tendancy to get less accurate as they increase. There was an article a year or so ago about speedo inaccuracy in car and driver. If I remeber correctly it was like 5-10 mph on average the higher you got on the speedo. Could try taking it to a shop have it tested go to court with the findings (if they favor you and that your speedo is inaccurate) and see if the judge will knock it down.

did you ask to see the radar? you have that right for them to show it to you. also shows you arent stupid, and know your rights, and they usually respect you a little more

You think Jersey troopers are bad, try dealing with NYS troopers. Those guys hop out the cruiser with the dildo still lodged up their asses.

nj state police do suck, they're all over the place! soo many un-marked cars, and they aren't even crown vic's anymore! i've seen undercover envoys and impalas, and im sure there are probably others. i'd hate to rely on a radar detector thing, gotta keep your eyes open. anyways, i've always heard from my dad never to hit your brakes when you see cops, i don't know why, but i think it seems to work as i haven't been pulled over yet *knock on wood*

ok, heres the deal. i got a ticket for 84 in a 55. cop didnt reduce it at all. If this is ur first speeding ticket they will prolly just reduce it to unsafe driving which is liek 133(mine was from a previous ticket) but if you go t court they will reduce it. If u had any other violations on ur record the ull prolly get at 1 to 2 point ticket. the guy reduced my ticket to 69 in a 55 so now have 2 points and a 159$ fine. sucks i know trust me im 18 and ive gotten so many tickets its not even funny for gay ass cops.

Just because you have your radar on.....never fall into a sense of security with it. You still have to keep an eye out.
