I have a passive Geologger GPS system in my 06 M5. Do it for mileage concerns (I am a Texas dealer so I have to be very careful about what I log as work/personal mileage)
I got a ticket for going 76 in a 55 in heavy traffic. Total BS- I have a Laser Blocker and Passport- the laser jammer worked like a charm and the radar never alerted me to presense of radar. Guy just got pissed that his lil' laser pointer didn't work when he pointed it at me. He also wrote me a slew of other tickets that were JUNK -tinted too dark, no current registration (which I don't have to have b/c I'm a dealer) my name isn't on the insurance card (again it doesn't have to be, as long as I'm on the policy) and even wrote me a ticket for tire tread depth as "misc safety violation" $20 fine-- and the tires were brand new they are just performance tires and some parts only have 1mm of tread depth. I got everything except the speeding taken care of pre-trial.
Download the data in a CSV file-and I was going -at no point- over 61MPH on that stretch of road with that speed limit.
Question- if I use the data on my GPS system as evidence, will I still be fined for going 61 in a 55? Probably so, huh?
I'm fighting it anyway- I don't care- it's a matter of principal.
It's the cops word of memory versus a second-by-second latitude & longitude and speed log of my driving that day- I hope a jury or judge doesn't just believe this little piggy because he's got a badge. In addition I have a witness in the car and tho he didn't see my speed at the time- I did show him the car's computer daily "top speed" record and it was *62*MPH. Not even close to 76MPH... Any lawyers? Any experience with GPS data as speeding ticket defense?
I doubt the copper will show up anyway. I wonder if I could redact data on the places I WAS speeding earlier on that stretch and leave the data showing that I was going below the speed limit at the place on the road where he actually is claiming my speed was 76MPH?
