Angry ► WTF Is this Sh*t - Speed Not Reasonable & Prudent

i live in a real residential neighborhood with a park near by. i was leaving my neighborhood and there was a cop just leaving the park parking lot (they usually stop by as teens smoke weed and stuff).

i pass him and as he pulls out of the parking lot he turns on his lights and pulls me over. long story short he gives me this ticket that has no speed limit and just says speed not reasonable & prudent.

wtf is this shit. there are no speed signs in the whole neighborhood and i wasn't speeding just driving the same speed and way i do every fucking day.

i can't believe i got pulled over literally just down the street from my house. i tried to tell the cop i live here and that is the speed everyone goes and he just replied "well it was too fast".

wtf are you fucking kidding me this guy doesn't even live here....

this ticket makes no sense.

since there is no speed over is this a speeding ticket? points?

sorry for the vent but this is just one of those cases where it makes no sense of getting a ticket. i mean its my fucking neighborhood or in this matter the street that i live on

and if that wasn't enough he added a no front plate as well... cause you know he is a big douche.

What part of NY if you dont mind me asking? I dont think the ticket can stick without an actual speed. Pretty sure it would get dismissed if you went to traffic court.

If you get a lawyer the cop most likely won't win. He had no way of measuring your speed to know its unreasonable.

If absolutely needed:
"Your honor, all crimes and violations are based on exact charges. As there is neither a speed limit on the citation, nor is there any clause in that section of the law that, based on the location and conditions, prescribes an exact speed limit for anyone to follow. Therefore, it is unconstitutional to be charged with a non-specific charge; I motion for dismissal under Void for Vagueness."

Signed,

Someone who got a crapload of tickets in his youth and learned due process instead of easing up on that throttle.

VTL Sec 1080a is typically meant for inclement weather, i.e., it isn't reasonable or prudent to be doing 55 mph with 6 inches of snow on the ground. Without looking, I'd guess it's a 3 point violation.

You have the opportunity to request a supporting deposition which would detail the facts supporting the charge.

Where are you located?
