Caledon Speeding Ticket 45 km/hr over in 60 km/hr zone

I got pulled over in Caledon on Highway 10 this evening, where the cop claims I was going 105 km/hr (45 km/hr) over in 60 km/hr zone. The ticket is a $335 fine and he said it would be 4 demerit points.

I know I was not going that fast, as I was just driving with the flow of traffic at that time which about 80-90 km/hr. It was pretty peak time as well since lots of people were driving back to Toronto.

The weird part about it was that the officer patrol car came behind my car while I was waiting at a traffic light (red) and didn't do anything. I didn't even know he was there at this point. I turned left to pull into a McDonalds and just as I about to go into the drive-thru, he puts on the "signals" alerting me to stop and pull over else where.

I have never gotten a speeding ticket before. What can I do to fight this? Please help and pardon me if the answer is posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find much for speeding 40 km/hr over and up!

Ask for full disclosure
@OP: disclosure would hopefully entitle you with a dash cam video which should clearly show your car as one traveling 105km/hr. The other/shorter possibility is just constable's written notes which usually don't help much.

Did you ask the constable of where and how he clocked you? The fact that he followed you into a McD's parking lot, may indicate that he was at some remote location/distance when he clocked you, which may open a question to the accuracy of actual vehicle with the infraction???

Cops don't give a **** about the "flow of traffic". If you are exceeding the speed limit by more than 10 km/hr on a road like that, you're asking for trouble.

Gee.....I can't believe the cop didn't buy that "flow of traffic" excuse and just let him off with a warning !

The speed of traffic at the was going at 80-90 km/hr, which I was forced to go at the time.

Technically, everyone driving at the speed was violating the speed limit and they could have been caught. The only reason I believe I was caught, because I chose to stop and make a left turn at the MCDs. I was waiting at least 2 minutes at the red light, before the cop came behind me, which leads me to believe he really was in some obscure location clocking me. If I didn't stop and wait at the light and just kept going, I don't think I would have been pulled over.

Regardless, does anyone have advice to help me out of this?
