if they pulled you over for cutting a guy off without signaling, then why did you get a ticket for speeding? it doesnt make sense

So I chill pass the dude, 2 exits later I get off at my exit and I see flashers in my rearview. I'm like wtf is this, what thell did this come from
So I get off the ramp and park in a parking lot, and there are 2 cops with guns pointed at me. I turn off the vehicle and put the keys in the passenger side seat, where the 2nd cop was standing. I had the turbo timer on and they kinda looked there and did a
Ne ways he tells me I cut the guy of and didn't signal (which I did signal) so then he goes, "I was pacin some other guy and I saw you cut a person off, and didn't signal". I asked how fast I was going and hes says about 90'ish. I was like umm I was pasing a guy on the freeway, I wasn't looking at the speedo.
So I asked how did you know I was speeding, he said he was pacing me... Ok is this going to hold up in court.
How can a cop, claim you were speeding by using pacing as a method to determine speed? He wrote on my ticket 85+ and had paced me, he didn't write an exact speed.
That and he asked what the guage was on the dash, I told him it was a boost gauge, and he said "Whats it do". o*&^%$# retarded cops.
What should I do.
Most officers in california gets paid for 4 hours of work when they have to appear in court even though most court sessions take less than an hour of time. LEO's live for court its a paid 3 hour break. Chances are the ticketing officer will show up espicially if its CHP.ayat108 said:vanilla & rice: if u still have old scc mags from mid to late 2002, search the editor's section. they were talking something about your right to request calibration reports from radar detector, and that crap actually being available for you before your court date.
vanilla. u gotta wonder what the chances are of the cops appearing @ court, i think. i'll look for the organization that helps folks that have tickets online. both of y'all's stories seem like there's a CHANCE to walk. i'm not a lawyer, neither do i play one on tv. but i'm looking @ the odds.
if u show up for court & lose, tho. u dont get a chance to remove the points & gotta pay mucho dinero para su ticket.

They always draw their guns on my :roll: They searched the car and shizzat too.
I like the idea of if he clocked me, or not. I know some people are saying it will hold up in court. As for changing the ticket to speeding instead of without signaling, I don't know how I could contest that, its not in writting.
Vanilla_Coke said:I believe they pulled their weapons due to the nature of my so called speed. The officer said he was pacing someone esle, saw me make a lane change without signaling (I used my friggin signal). He said the other guy was going 90'ish, the guy they were pacing, and yeah they were a ways behind me.
