Here are some scenarios:

1) you pay the ticket and go to traffic court ($ cost of fine + school) to save your driving record. If you really have a good driving record 1 point for speeding will not be a big deal and will be deleted in three years.

2) you go to court and tell the court that you were not speeding and the officer was incorrect. During the questioning time you can ask the officer if he was "responding to an active call?"
When he says no and that had you passed him, he will have to admit to excessive speed himself (at which you can request the court cite the officer for speeding 75 in a 65 zone) because he was not responding to an active call.

Which you will have to pay the fine and save on traffic school.

3) you go to court and the officer fails to show and your ticket is dismissed.

4) you can just pay the ticket and give the citing office free revenue.

I have found that one should at least try to fight the ticket and if you loose the pay it, but you at least tried. It's a crap shoot but if you pay it and don't try you will never know.


p.s. My dad is a retired officer too and this is where I learned this.

Not always true for motorcycle troopers. He can request any and all information, certifications, calibrations paperwork for any/all certified equipment, i.e. speedometers
