If You Were Pulled Over for Speeding, How was Your Speed Measured?

When you get pulled over by law enforcement for speeding, there are a variety of methods that may have been used to determine your speed. None of these methods is 100 percent accurate all of the time, and some are less accurate than you might think. Radar is one of the most frequently used methods for determining a vehicle’s speed, and though it is accurate when used correctly, the officer that measured your speed may not have had the best line of sight, the weather could have made for poor conditions, or heavy traffic surrounding you may have mislead the reading. Additionally, the radar itself may have been calibrated improperly.

Another common speed determinant is pacing. Pacing requires the police officer to estimate your speed based on the speed they are traveling alongside, in front, or behind you. To accurately estimate this, the officer’s car must be able to maintain a constant speed and distance from your vehicle as a reference point. The natural terrain, visibility, and judgment of the officer all come into play in pacing scenarios.

Understanding these methods and their limitations can be important when contesting a speeding charge. A Brambleton speeding attorney can assist in scrutinizing these factors and developing a robust defense strategy.
