At least in Florida the easiest way to avoid a ticket, other than not speeding :)), is treating the cop like a human. I've been pulled over by a variety of officers since I have been down here on all my bikes and have only gotten one ticket. I just pull right over, take my helmet off and get my paperwork out. There are so many scumbags down here that will either run and/or treat treat the officer like a complete weanie that when they encounter a motorcyclist that's nice they really appreciate it.

This is very true. To me anyways. A lot of times if some one admits they did the violation and so on I will try my hardest to find a non moving ticket to write or reduce the speed to only 9 over to lower the fine and points

ME TOO!!!!!!!

I would like to know which is the best radar and mount set up for the 14 ?
i have a Valentine in our car but find it hard to get a mount for it !
HELP!!!!!! >:(


John,
  I'm using my V1 on all the bikes, both cars and my truck.  I have it Velcro'd to a round
RAM mount on the right bar.  It is interfaced to my StarCom.  I've recently upgraded it to
POP since I travel to CA a lot and they have begun using POP on the freeways. :(

Wow, it's soooooo different over here!!

I too am a motor cop. Our Judges listen way too much to our solicitors and drivers than they do to the police. If I told a Judge that I had estimated the speed of a vehicle I would be thrown in a cell for wasting court time, we have to use laser speed detection equipment, the in car GPS speed recording devices (with video) or the static vans that photograph the vehicle that is in excess of the limits.

The latest one in our district court is the solicitor that challenged the speeding offences saying that the police had not proven in their evidence that the speed limit existed. Yep, signposts, built up residential areas, and the Judge accepted that the police had not brought to court the legal document stating that the speed limit existed.

When we issue a fine / points for speeding, we do not have the choice to reduce either. No matter what the excess it is two penalty points and an Eur80.00 fine. The only time we wouldn't issue the fine was if it was way in excess of the limit and you arrested them for dangerous driving.

Mad differences, over here it's the police that are grilled in court, not the drivers.  Wonder how my job is for inter-jurisdictional transfers to the US!!
