I got an unjust speeding ticket and I want to know how to get

This answer was rated:

I got an unjust speeding ticket and I want to know how to get out of it. He said I was going 81, wrote me for 80, never asked for registration or insurance information and was rude. My speed control and my GPS both registered 73 mph. Limit was 70 on interstate.
Then you need to go to court and fight the ticket. First, you would need to prove that your GPS was an accurate measure of your speed such that it was as accurate or more accurate than his certified calibrated speedometer (or radar) If he wrote you based upon pacing you with his speedometer, then you would ask for the prosecution to produce the records certifying his speedometer. If it was radar, then you would have to ask for documentation on the certification of the radar and his certification and testing measures. You would also have to write to the GPS company and ask for this certification on your GPS as well to submit into evidence in your defense. You would likely do best hiring an attorney to represent you in fighting this ticket.

As far as being rude, this is a complaint you would make to the department's internal affairs division.

I don't have another $15 but I have another question related to your answer. In your experience, have you seen tickets absolutely dismissed? I do not mean adjudicaiton withheld, I mean dismissed. My employment only allows 2 speeding tickets in 36 month period or it is instant dismissal.

I have seen the dismissals and since it is that important, you should hire an attorney to work this case for you. I have seen prosecutors work deals if you have a fairly clean driving record, but you have a better chance of that with an attorney.

What you need to do is discredit his method of calculating or determining your speed. Proving exactly how fast you were going, if you were going over the speed limit does not really prove your case because you were still going over the limit. If you were going under the limit then using your GPS to prove your speed would be helpful.
