My Ride: E46 M3 Manual
Got three offenses in one ticket, officer was mad

Can someone write what he officer wrote for first offense? (he mentioned speeding, illegal tint, no signal while passing, passing on right) cannot read his handwriting for 1st one.



Officer wrote the wrong street speed limit, it's 40mph not 35. I was going 42mph in a 40mph zone. I saw cop's car, I would not be stupid enough to break the law let alone right in front of a cop.

I'm requesting a hearing. Are any of these offenses major violations (would go on record and raise my insurance)?

I saw him stopping 2 other people right after me. I guess he needed to fill his quota for the night. Passing on the right and for going 2 miles over the speed limit. WTF

The speeding would raise your insurance, if you lost your case. Just take a picture of the sign and the are you got pulled over and fight it. You should win though. The passing on the right seems like bullshit though.

Sorry I can't read the top line. It's not even sloppy, just a lack of letters.

I'm not sure,

But how can you have a speeding assessment that was "clocked" and "estimated"? Does that mean he estimated it, then clocked you?

It looks like Mashed Lanes, which makes no sense. Mashed Brakes would make more sense, but it doesn't look like that's what it says.

There's a couple where I live, they're not very common, but they do exist.

Pic of the speed limit sign with a cross section street name in the same pic, if possible. Pic of where he pulled u over with a street sign included, if possible. Google map print out with both spots marked. Show that to the prosecutor and u'll most likely get everything thrown out.

Marked lane violation.

Edit: basically you were weaving through either the double white or yellow line.

I thought 'marked lane' makes more sense too...as in, maybe the line was solid and you crossed, or you left a lane without signalling first.

I follow the rules, as in signaling a few secs. before actually shifting lanes.

I didn't even realize passing on the right was an offense...sometimes you have to necessarily do it.

Illegal tint: did he guess, or use a tint meter? And also is it actually illegal? If not, use a tint meter, show that it isn't illegal.

In Texas, we can drive a bit over the speed limit and usually get away with it. My attorney buddies have mentioned this before, and have used it to get clients off of BS tickets. Here's why (From Fight Your Speeding Ticket):

The 50 states basically use three types of speed limits. We call these “absolute,” “presumed” (or “prima facie” in legalese), and “basic” speed limits. Because each type of speed-limit violation often requires a unique defense, it is key to understand which you are charged with violating.
Absolute. Most states have an “absolute” speed law. There is no trick to how this works: If the sign says 40 mph and you drive 41 mph or more, you have violated the law.
Presumed. “Presumed” speed-limit violations are a little more complicated but give you far more flexibility in building your defense. In states that use this system for all or some of their roads—California and Texas, for example—it’s legal to drive over the posted limit as long as you are driving safely. For example, if you are driving 50 mph in a 40-mph zone, you are “presumed” to be speeding. But if it is 6 a.m. on a clear, dry morning with no other cars on a wide, straight road, and you can convince the judge that you were driving safely given those conditions, you should be acquitted. That’s because you present facts that “rebut the presumption” that by going over the limit you were driving at an unsafe speed. (We’ll give you more information about this below.)
Basic. The concept of the basic speed law is even trickier. It works like this: In all states you can be charged with speeding by violating the “basic” speed law, even if you were driving below the posted speed limit. The ticketing officer must simply decide that you were going faster than you should have been, taking into account the driving conditions at the time. Or put another way, if you are driving 40 mph in a 45-mph zone on an icy road in heavy fog, a cop could sensibly conclude that by driving too fast for road conditions you are in violation of the “basic” speed law. This type of ticket is mostly handed out after an accident.


Show up in court with an attorney, and you should be able to walk away from this... hopefully... Then drive [more] carefully going forth... Good luck...

I got a ticket thrown out for passing on the right because in florida its not illegal to do so.

Check the statutes on passing for Massachusetts.

For MA it's legal. The highway I was on is divided:

Passing on right, unless vehicle being passed is (A) making a left turn, (B) on one way street (C) on a divided highway M.G.L. c. 89, § 2


http://www.pdonovanlaw.com/Massachus...hargeable.aspx

So this means 2 offenses are wrong, now the first one I have no idea what it's or what to do with it? The passing line was dotted (not solid) and people pass.
