Speeding but not being clocked

I was driving on the highway and a guy started to ride on my tail end of the car. I tried to get him off by going to the other side of the road but he continued to follow me.

He even swerved to my side. Someone had called ahead to the police saying that i was swerving in and out of traffic and speeding. Can they charge me with speeding if I was not clocked by an officer or paced?
Most states and counties have varying rules when you read the fine print. HOWEVER, generally speaking, a police officer can CHARGE you with speeding for just about any reason that they feel is warranted.

Then it becomes up to you to dispute the charge in the court you are charged in. You will need to show up in court, be sworn in, and basically have a "trial" with the judge and or prosecutor stating your position against the word of a "trained, experienced, professional officer of the law".

You may have to appear on more than one occasion if the officer that cited you does not show up. AND, no matter what the facts, you will most likely lose. You will likely be asked why the court should believe you vs the trained opinion of an officer - and so on.

It has been our experience that about 90% of the traffic ticket calls we get, the person truly does not believe they deserved the ticket. A large percentage of these people probably did NOT deserve the tickets. But fighting a traffic ticket is generally always a waste of time. Ask anyone who's done it.

Have the ticket amended to minimize the damage and keep it from hurting your driving record and increasing your insurance rates. Then forget it. History has shown that to be the most practical use of your time, energy, and money.
Good Luck.
