it was a three lane main rd and we were both in the middle lane.
You keep referring to him being behind you when he detected you. Because he was in the middle lane when he "intercepted" you does not mean that was the position he was in when he "detected" you speeding. He is sitting still somewhere sees you driving. Aims the laser at you, gets a reading and waits 3 seconds. He then puts the laser down and takes off after you. You may have made it easier for him to catch up if you had by then realised you were in a 40 zone and slowed down, but it would have been too late. He had got you a minute or two before. His notes will have the exact location on it. You can ask for a copy of that after receiving the court papers.
Ok will you obviously don't seem to believe me when I say that he was always behind me. At no stage did he ever get out of his car, he even told me that he was using a laser that was on the car and not a hand held laser. As I have stated before that this was in the middle of peak hr traffic and there were cars everywhere around us so I don't see how I would have made it easier for him to catch up after me.
The 40 km hr zone I went through is not a very long zone and I would guess that it's less than 400 m in it's total lenth. I was entering the zone at walking speed and stayed at that speed for approximatly 70 % of the time.
The moment he had detected my speed will show that I was or would have already been into the 70 zone. It's about 70m from the set of lights to the 70km hr sign and about 50 m from the light to the end of the 40 km hr sign. So if you take that 96.2 m into account it means I'm in the 70 zone and not the 40 zone
I think the police officer had made a mistake and must have thought that, that was the start of the 40 zone and not the end.
Once I get the papers and the evidence I will post it up here just to make you believe me.
I hope you can see why I am getting frustrated
