All those would be much harder to get to stick. The gun makes it easy....something thats very hard to contest. You should be going X miles an hour..you were going Y...
I am sure the motorcyclist was doing much more wrong than passing at over 80mph..here again..just the easiest excuse to nab him. I notice on local roads everyone is always going significantly over the speed limit(75 in a 55 is standard..lol). Cops just use it to nab the jack asses who are doing the improper lane changes, failure to yield, stupid aggressive crap..Would guess it would hold up better if someone fights the ticket..more cut and dry.
Not a cop though so don't have the full skinny on it..
No doubt. The lazyness of this example is a window into the mind of LEO's and the system. Infractions are prioritized based on their ease of enforcement and revenue potential, not their cost to society.
Please feel free to eat your cheeseburger while driving 50MPH in the left lane while also on the bluetooth talking to your undocumented maid.
Want to play online poker, smoke marijuana, hire a willing and able (unemployed even) adult for sex work, or travel at a reasonable and prudent 100 MPH when conditions allow? Sorry, you're a felon waiting to happen.
