Will My Speeding Ticket be Thrown Out if the Police Officer Has Not Calibrated the Radar Gun? — North Carolina Traffic Ticket Myths — iTicket.law

iTicket — North Carolina’s Traffic Ticket Defense Resource

The short answer is no, typically not. Many drivers will try to cite the possibility of inaccurate radar guns as a reason why their traffic tickets should be dismissed. However, this defense does not work with most judges without substantial evidence to support your claim. Furthermore, in North Carolina, the officer does not need to use a radar gun. You can be charged with speeding as long as the officer says it “looks” like you were speeding. If it’s a matter of “he said, she said,” the court often sides with the officer of the law.

In most cases, it’s recommended to seek a reduction of your charge to a less severe citation. While it’s not a dismissal, a reduction could potentially avoid any license points and, most importantly, keep your North Carolina auto insurance rates from skyrocketing. Knowing the specific DMV and Department of Insurance rules that apply to your case, an attorney can seek the best possible outcome on your behalf.
