You don't get it moved. You think the prosecutor and cop are going to drive to you?drey2k wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 5:53 pmNeed advice on a speeding in Construction Zone ticket.
I was driving from Kelowna to Vancouver on the highway. Highway speed limit is 120 km/h. Signs said construction up ahead reduce to 90 km/h, at this point I'm going 100 km/h. Another sign up ahead says 60km/h, and there was a flashing sign that said I'm going too fast "102 km/h".
So I slowed to about 80 km/h, no real construction in sight. When I see the construction up ahead I slowed down to about 65km/h. Then when I see the actual construction, I get stopped by a police officer who said I was going at 102 km/h in a 60 km/h construction zone. He was standing next to a radar tripod but never actually showed me a reading.
Wrote me a $250 ticket.
The court hearing is in Kelowna, but I live in Vancouver.
Is this worth fighting? If I do fight how do I move the court location to Vancouver?
You could hire someone local to fight it. You can always request disclosure and see what that offers first. And pay the ticket any time to avoid the trial. But unless they made an error, it sounds like you were doing what they ticketed you for. Which makes it tougher to fight.
