    A horrible, horrible kill...(long)

    This is pretty strange, but bear with me.

    Coming home from the local sports bar after the Phillies beat the Braves, I roll up on a very sweet yellow WRX. I've always had a a thing for the yellow Subies.

    Anyway, as I come up, I see that there is a motorcycle cop on the WRX's rear-end. I followed discretely back for about a mile and see the officer turned off.

    I come up on the Subie, and at 25mph, cruising, say "Wow, you just lucked out!"

    "Yeah", she says.

    Not only is it a nice WRX, but also a hawt chick driving.

    So, we do a couple blurps. You all know. A couple hits of the pedal. Nothing dangerous, just a little jump of both our cars in a 2nd gear lurch.

    So I get up ahead and then she passes me.

    Next thing I know, my Valentine 1 is silent, but a police cruiser comes flying past me with lights blazing...

    I never feared, because:1) I wasn't speeding, and 2) I knew he had no radar running to make a claim...

    But! As the cop passed by me, he turned off in the direction of my new WRX bud.

    I didn't see it in total.

    I'd like to think that the car in front of me pulled over was not our comrade.

    I'd feel real bad if I contributed to a fellow WRX'er getting a ticket. Especially on such a BS speed exhibition..

    If, in the process of passing you, she was speeding, (or she was speeding while you guys were screwing around), then it's not BS, and he has a legitimate right to pull her, right?

    The cop doesn't need a running radar to give you a speeding ticket. He can guess how fast you were going and give you a ticket for that.

    In what state is that?

    It wouldnt hold up in court, atleast not in MD. There is a "Speed greater then reasonable" charge in MD along with the other generic speeding citations. Greater then reasonable is fairly hard to explain in court.

    No radar, no pace, no other kind of timing device (using landmarks/strips on the road), then no actual speeding ticket here.

    Pa. There are more then one way to judge speed not just a radar detector. I also got one with a cop driving the other way in Missouri on the way back from Arizona in my buddies evo. The detector never went off. Of course I wasn't going to fight it though. On my last ticket the boxes that can be checked for how you were clocked are Radar, clocked, AOV, ESP, Vascar, and other.

    Can I get a speeding ticket without being gunned by the radar? - Yahoo! Answers

    I had a buddy who got a speeding ticket for going under the posted speed limit (according to him, 10-15mph under) - got it for "driving too fast for the conditions"

    Sucks for him, but his truck went off the road - he was running summer tires during a NY winter
