(No amount of training can give you a speedometer in your head).

The video equipment, if used properly should have a read-out of your speed and the cop car's speed but I have seen in the past that the cop car's speed is used in prosecution - wrong, as he is obviously going faster than you are, in order to catch you up.

For these reasons, seek legal advice.

It's odd that you didn't get any paperwork at the time, could it have been a wind-up to make you more careful in the future?
Regarding the video...again wrong, sorry bro.
