Speeding ticket advice
OK ...on the way to the bash ...I got pulled over and ticketed with 64 in a 45.
This is the second ticket I have gotten with the Jeep where the cop is telling me I was going a speed that exceeds what my speedo is saying. For instance, cop: you were going 70 my speedo: never above 60
Plus ...the spot where he got me was on 62 between 59 and Palatine rd. There were no speed limit signs on this 1/2 mile stretch of road.
A) Is there a way of testing speedo accuracy? If proven to be off, is this a valid defense?
B) In this area, most raods are 55. I truly thought I was in a 55mph zone. Is there a defense at all for the lack of signage?
or do I just suck it up as usual and pay? I generally do not speed at night for a few reasons, and try to be careful, which makes this ticket especially annoying.
