A California man recently used his GPS tracker to beat a speeding ticket.
Sahas Katta was pulled over in central California; the officer accused
Mr. Katta of driving 40 mph in a 25mph zone. Mr. Katta was about to pay
the fine, when he remembered that his cell phone's Google MyTracks
was active when he was pulled over; the device indicated that his maximum
speed during the time in question had been 26 mph.
The judge was impressed enough to dismiss the ticket; Mr. Katta's lawyer certainly helped his cause by questioning the
officer about the condition of the radar gun and the officer's experience
and training, or lack thereof, in operating the gun.
Bakersfield traffic ticket attorneys use every available resource to help
their clients defeat speeding tickets, including such things as scientific
reviews of police equipment and Internet records regarding weather and
sunrise/sunset times. Knowledge of the law, in particular in speeding
cases involving Vehicle Code 22350, the basic speed rule, will oftentimes
allow a case to be dismissed even if the driver was proven to have been
going faster than the legal limit.
