DOES THE POLICE OFFICER NEED TO SHOW ME THE RADAR GUN?
Not in South Florida. In fact, this is not required any jurisdiction. Also, whether the Officer allows you to see the speed reading has virtually no bearing on your case. Most Officers can’t lock a radar reading and they will never show it to you so don’t ask and antagonize the Officer. Just sign the ticket and don’t argue. We have many legal arguments to have the ticket thrown out. So remember, just be polite and after he pulls away, call us as soon as possible. Steve G. Boca Raton.
DO I HAVE TO SIGN THE TICKET IF I THINK THE POLICE OFFICER PULLED OVER THE WRONG PERSON?
Not signing a traffic ticket can lead to other charges. Signing for your ticket merely means that you will pay the fine or plead not guilty and show up in court. If your name was spelled wrong, that could be used in court with other anomalies to introduce reasonable doubt in the Officer’s testimony. However, if all the information relevant to the stop is correct, a spelling error will not result in the dismissal of the charge(s). Also, if you don’t sign the ticket, you can be arrested on the spot. Always sign the traffic ticket. Let us beat up on the cop in Court for you. Remember, the ONLY place you can ever win an argument with a Police Officer is in the Courtroom. Doug B., Weston.
