Default Can i fight this ticket?

i got pulled over the other day on a road that i travel at least 4 times a day.
i was stuck behind this guy that was going about 35 in a 55,
we took a turn and my friend in front of me passed him in a no passing zone
and i know where the passing zone is so i waited till i was right on the the tip of it and passed the dude going about 55 or less.
i know i wasnt speeding cause you dont need to go 65 to pass someone going 35-40.
this cop pulled me over and gave me a ticket for "speeding 10 percent about posted limit" and "drive on wrong side of road-no passing zone"
but he put my alleged speed at 65 which he wasnt on radar and 65 is not 10 percent over 55. and i was in a passing zone for about 90% of passing the guy.
and he didnt mark that i has passengers, which i did.

why didnt he chase my friend?
and
can i fight that and win?

You can always fight a ticket in court - some times the police won't even show up and you'll win automatically.

Dress nice, be respectful, don't argue with the judge - you don't have a lot to lose unless you blow your cool. Have your points written out clearly on a 3x5 card and practice your explanation.

When i got a ticket for running a yellow light (yeah i know retarded..) i wanted to fight the ticket, because there was no way i could have stopped my truck so i sped up through the light.. But court date came, and the cop didnt show up, and for me to defend myself i would have to wait another 3 weeks for another court date.. so you dont always win if the cop no shows.. i lost

you aaaalways fight the ticket...normally if your not a **** you can get off with a lesser ticket. But if what your being charged was NOT correct, then you fight it.

What Steve said ^^^ .. You may not be able to win on the passing on a solid line, but the speeding part you should be!

I've had lots of tickets in the past couple of years and from what I have learned is there is never any point in fighting it. It's his word against yours and he has a badge so he will win. The only thing is I'm in Illinois where the cops don't have to show up, there is a public defender to represent them.

In Michigan I fought a ticket and lost and had to pay the cops wage for showing up.
Ticket $ 35.00 Cops wage $ 65.00 I sold the Pinto asap.

" I fought the law and the law won "
