Am I missing something?
Would somebody PLEASE tell me what this has to do with Amateur Radio?
If you have to ask, you probably should not do it.
So don't speed and you won't have any problems.
I as a 20yr Officer working traffic I could tell you within a mile or two how fast someone was
driving. I've had supervisors watch the radar and I would be correct 100.00% of the time.
If its your profession you can do it. We always used another device to verify. Often the Judge knows of your experience and would rule in my favor.....Once I wrote the ticket I didn't care what the Judge did..
Posted under wrong topic
So he got excited and posted under the wrong topic... this should be moved to the Rag Chew area where anything may be brought up.

Are you a turtle?
Remember the parable of the vineyard owner, the morning and the afternoon hired hands, and equality of pay.
Uh, big deal.
Cops have ALWAYS had to estimate your speed. Yeah, some jurisdictions law lay out definitions as to the technical requirements, but even then, a lot of jurisdictions specifically say the officer has to feel you are speeding BEFORE they use the more technical means.
Ever fight a speeding ticket? I'll bet that if it came to trial, the officers opening statement say something that 'you were observed and estimated by the officer to be speeding and this was verified by xxx' either radar, laser, whatever.
Unless you have an OLDER GPS unit that tracks NEMA points and records them, and you dump it out... But even then, whose to say how accurate it is, or that you didn't tamper with the data.
If this were really about Amateur Radio, I just might lose my temper and loose my wrath.

First off, agreed - this has NOTHING to do with ham radio. If you want to pout and say you won't drive in Ohio any more because the courts will take the word of a trained police officer, well, I guess that's your choice to make.
As to the loss of due process mentioned in the topic, baloney. The motorist had his day in court. He's free to appeal, in which case the ruling will probably be upheld. Knowing this, he and his lawyer have wisely decided to pay the fine and shut up about it. "Due process" is not the same as "got out of a speeding ticket".
