Probably only chance would be to take to court, but the judge will usually see it in favor of the LEO unless you have a reciept from a shop that can check your speedometer and show it is incorrect. If they still have a traffic school you may want to go to it. Will probably cost, but you will not get hit with the points and you insurence won't go up. At least that is the way it is here now. Maybe someone there has a better fix. Reguardless you will hear from IC because you had the nerve to say a LEO gave you a ticket you don't feel you should have gotten. That is a big NO-NO.

In WV a trooper used to be able to throw away a ticket if he chose to do so. I don't know if that has changed over the years or not. I haven't done anything at high speed for a number of years. HaHa I suggest that you talk to the trooper who wrote the ticket. I don't know who the commanding officer is in your area.

The West Virginia State Police have agreed to pay Charleston attorney Roger A. Wolfe $200,001.01 to settle his lawsuit over an alleged beating that occurred in the South Charleston barracks while Wolfe was in custody. This is a true story of how corrupt, sick and twisted the state police actually are: http://blogs.wvgazette.com/watchdog/2009/10/0...

omg, don't let informed see this. She will have a cow trying to muddy things up with a totally unconnected news article or some idle gossip she has picked up and twisted her way. Remember, all police have wings and a halo.

Yes, I am in FL. Wasn't real sure of the laws on tickets up there recently. I came up and changed back to WVA license a few years ago for awhile during which time I had the wonderful turnpike police hit me for 5mi over the limit. I just paid the fine. When I got back to FL I changed back to fl.
