My friend and I were on our motorcycles and were going 85 in a 75. We got pulled over and were told that we were going at least 90 but they never clocked us. They also said we were swerving in and out of traffic(6 lane road). We weren't, we were just passing cause we were going faster then other people. We used our blinkers every time and checked to see if we were clear before changing lanes. We never even saw any cops and don't know how they spotted us. The only cop we saw supposedly called in ahead and said we were weaving but we never changed lanes next to him.
They wanted to put us in give us a reckless driving ticket and put us in jail. I don't think we were doing anything to provoke anything more than a speeding ticket. I think they were profiling us cause we were on sport bikes and they have had troubles with them lately.
But my question is, do you think we could get off the ticket, cause I don't think they had a just reasoning to give us that.
"we were changing lanes because we were going faster than other people" implies you were in fact weaving. Just because you were using blinkers and looking doesn't mean you weren't making frequent lane changes to go faster than the flow of traffic.
It was 11am on a Sunday, so there wasn't much traffic. And most people were going 80-85 anyway so we weren't passing them that fast. The only reason they pulled us over is because there have been a lot of bikes that fun from cops in that county and they were cracking down. And unfortunately there are a lot of deuche bags on bikes around here.
