Say's that he had to go over 100 mph to catch up to me but it's just cause I was ahead of him already....

lol I remember when I got pace clocked by an officer saying I was going over 100 mph and threatened to arrest me but instead wrote me a ticket. I contested against the officer but he never showed up to the court and by default, I won the case. I don't find pace clocking valid unless officer was clocking my speed for a while. I would straight take it to the court.

about 90 is ambiguous.
i could fight that on my own, but im crazy twice over.
all the other information he provided is worthless.

If im jogging and you wait long enough you'll have to drive 100+ mpg to catch up to me. im just saying

WARNING!!!!: It appears there is no sound but at around 29 seconds and past the officer turns on the radio and it is very loud and EAR RAPE and NSFW. TURN VOLUME DOWN SO IT DOESN'T HURT YOUR EARS!!!
So I just received the dash cam footage. I had just passed an 18 wheeler that's why I didn't see him. The stuff I blacked over is just some numbers(privacy) but IT DOES NOT SHOW SPEED AT ANY TIME. His dash cam does not show speed. I don't know where he got "about 90" from. This was all that I got and then the pull over, there was nothing before that. He followed me for about 2 seconds and caught up to me so fast... Also just looked at the speed limit sign at it shows 65 on the video but says 55 on the ticket. I know that's not a 55 area and it's an electric speed limit sign that they control and change all the time so the 65 should be right.

Here’s an update:
I’ve never had any prior tickets so the speed was reduced to 13 over so a 0 point ticket and won’t report to insurance. It’s a 150$ fine and I have to take a course which I think I can submit to insurance to lower it.

Congrats! Sounds like a great outcome.

DUDE! I would have been over my hood gettin ****ed while they searched my car, called the dogs, called for backup, called my momma, called his momma... if I blew by the fuzz like that. Maybe some of us are just lucky like that?

I don't know that the claim he made was 100% valid but man you got lucky with that outcome IMO. I didn't see the traffic you were keeping up with, that was a pretty good gap. And someone called it, some embarassing music for a good ol boy.

I retain an attorney- he says don't sign anything and let them go to court for you. Its sounds like typical entrapment to me, but anyway my attorneys take care of all that crap-

Get a great traffic attorney in the county the ticket was issued in
He actually admitted he didnt have a correct pace by saying "close to 90" so he admitted he didnt know how fast you were going
A great attorney will get you a no point fine with the DA before it even makes it to court with that slovenly work

How about just the rear cam footage?
I would assume a serious speeding case with dash cam footage, the police could measure your speed by how fast the lane dash paint is good by, forward or rear facing dash cam.

Except the ticket, which is required and is not an admission of guilt, only an acknowledgement of receipt.
Exactly. I almost got arrested once for refusing to sign a ticket (early years). Some cops simply write on the ticket that you refused to sign (additional fine) or they go ape-sh*t! My officer that day went ape-sh*t.

Sign the ticket, smile, get a lawyer, don't say a thing (before or during court - that's why you hire a lawyer).

Not all video operates at the same speed. Video can be made to look like something is going faster or slower than it really is. Even GPS is not universally accepted as accurate. The focal length of the lens can also make it difficult to measure the distance over time (speed), especially the ultra wide angles of dashcams. I can confirm that the crappy GPS chip in my motorcycle dashcam is waaaaay off most of the time and shows me speeding up when you can hear my motorcycle slowing down. That GPS is only accurate after maintaining the same speed for about 10 seconds or more.
