My 22 yr old daughter got a speeding ticket. She said she was going 80 MPH (new car). The officer said he estimated her speed at 85, but when he took a radar reading he found it said she was going 97 MPH. She is a Paramedic Intern and cannot afford a speeding ticket on her record.
Since the officer is trained in estimating speed, and since they came very close to agreeing as to how fast she was going, can she use this as a bases for getting the judge to drop the radar speed to the 'mutually agreed' speed in order to be eligible for traffic school? She is guilty of speeding, admits it and agrees with the officer's estimation but disagrees with the radar reading. The critical 25 MPH and traffic school is at stake.
