The lie: You can’t get a ticket driving the speed limit
The truth: The speed limit assumes optimal conditions. If you’re doing 40 mph in a 40 mph zone after dark, on a sheet of black ice, you’re driving recklessly and can/should receive a ticket.
The lie: You can get out of a ticket by challenging the accuracy of the radar
The truth: You can try, but it won’t do you any good. Radar guns are calibrated regularly, and you can request to see the calibration...but that might only confirm that you’re guilty. If the officer says you looked like were going significantly over the limit, his testimony alone can be enough to nail you, too.
