I just got a ticket on the 35 service road near Swisher road. The cop had just given a ticket to someone else who was just pulling off. I looked at my odometer to make sure I wasn't speeding as I was approaching the cop carthat was parked on the side of the service road. I was going 40 and the speed limit. He pulled out and pulled behind the car that was behind me. Then pulled out while waiting at the light and pulled right behind me and turned his lights on. He stated I was driving 55 in a 40 and gave me a ticket. When I disputed it he was cocky and said do you want me to show you the laser? I should have said yes him. If I try to contest it I have no proof to show my innocence. I do believe hey write tickets to get revenue for the court. Ive read where they are notarious for writing tickets in this location. I hats that I am forced to have to pay this expensive fine but cant contest since its his word over mine. Anyone have this happen? I am sure the officer will show up to court too since its a small court.

Same thing happen to me today. I was approaching Swisher on the service road, had come from a business along I-35 not one block and got pulled over for speeding. I might have been going 43 or 42 but the police officer said i was going 56. My stop was identical to yours. I stopped at the light and when it turn green he pulled behind me and stopped me. I know, I was not speeding beyond the two or three miles. I had only driven for a block and know you almost always wait a while at the light. If it comes down to my world and the officers world, I loose :(

If they have dash cams (which I'm sure they do)then file an open records request to get a copy of the traffic stop on a DVD. The cost is $3.00.
And yes, they are notorious for pulling over motorists at this location.
Hope this helps!
