Where was it at. Ridgeland SC?

It is illegal down there but they are doing it anyway.
There is a class action suit in SC.

Type the town and "speedtrap" into your search and see what comes up.

Just got a letter like that yesterday. As soon as she saw the envelope she says, " you got a speeding ticket, didn't you? You know the tone. I looked at the date and realized I was attending a workshop all that day. Ha,ha. I'm still teasing her about it. She was driving the car that day.

Up here, multanova-type camera speeding tickets are issued to the registered owner of the vehicle, not the driver.

This means that there are no demerit points against anyone's driver's license and no impact on insurance.

If unpaid, though, you will have to pay for the ticket the next time you (the person who was issued the ticket) go to register a vehicle or renew a vehicle registration. Or, it can go to collections, which could negatively affect your credit rating.

As for fighting them, was it your vehicle and license plate?

Were you speeding? If so, man up and pay your fine.

If you don't think you were speeding, go to court and ask the prosecutor to provide evidence that the unit was calibrated recently. If they cannot produce evidence, the judge may see that as "reasonable doubt" as to the machine's accuracy and dismiss the ticket.

Have you had your tires replaced recently, or had transmission work done? If so, take your receipts in and claim that the difference in tire size, or the incorrect speedometer drive gear in the transmission, could have accounted for the difference in speed between what you thought you were driving (at or below the limit) and the recorded speed listed on the ticket.

Take a receipt into court from the beer store, and tell them the 12-pack made you speed
