I stumbled upon this site while researching for info on how to best defend myself against a LIDAR ticket.
The fact is I had my cruise control set for 69 in a 65 zone on. The officer told me that LIDAR pegged me 81 at a distance of 824'. I told told him that that was impossible because I had set my speed control and 69 and also noted my speed as I passed him as he and is fellow officer's car was highly visible. He said that he would ticket me for 80 as it was in a lower price bracket.
I'm at a loss to explain why his LIDAR clocked me at this speed. It was the middle of the day with clear blue sky's. The traffic density was probably about 10 cars per mile so it would be hard for me to say the officer got a reading of another vehicle.
Anyway I have a court date set the 23rd of this month and any real world winning defense sharing is much appreciated. Plus if anyone has any technical information that I can take to court to defend myself would be much appreciate.
I guess the bottom line is I would feel more justified if I was at least pulled over for going 4 mile over the limit than what the Anamolus LIDAR reading indicates.
Thanks For Listening :-)
