Hand Held Device – Panning From One Car To Another


I was stopped for doing 39 in a 30 zone by officers standing in the road using a hand held device which he pointed at the car in front of me and when that car went by him without a break he directed it at me and then directed me to pull over.

He showed me the reading of 39 and passed the device to colleague and they continued to use the device while I was being dealt with they stopped another motorist and let her go as according to them there cut off point was 37 mph do I have any defence?  Also no speed limit signs on any part of the road

Louise Says:

There has to be signs or a system of street lighting for the limit to be legal. The street lights must be no more than 20 yards apart.

The officer has to form the opinion that you were speeding before zapping you with his gun. the officer cannot just pan from one vehicle to another zapping away as he goes.

Have you got any points already? If you want to challenge this matter come back to me and I will be happy to assist further.

Have you got any points already? If so, how many?

There is no set cut off point its at the discretion of the officers I’m afraid.
