I'm seeking to challenge it
I have a clean driving record I will appear most likely by myself.
Not that I am aware of I was going off of the pa title 75 subsection 3368(c) (3) and (d) on the ticket must be written within 60 days of testing equipment though I don't know if I would be coorect on this pertaining to robic
No I have no recording devises I'm pa title 75 I believe states there equipment must be tested every 60 days it was 61 when I was ticketed not sure if you got my last response
Thank you for your patience, Eric. I do apologize for the delay.I have pulled up the statutory authority for review and I do agree with your position that this ticket can be fought. The statute does require testing--while it does not mean that the ticket is invalid on its own, if the equipment was not calibrated recently, you can bring up a claim that this is not a valid ticket because the mechanical testing is not proven to have been recently tested for accuracy. You are not mistaken at all, the code is clear on the calibration requirement. I would also suggest that you come back to the location where you were cited and take pictures of speed limit signs--if there are no signs designating the zone as 35 MPH, you can claim that the zone is 45 MPH (if not within city limits), and as the code requires anyone going under 55 MPH to be cited above 10 miles if under mechanical testing, the ticket would likewise be invalid.Good luck.
