How to Fight a Pacing Speeding Ticket

Sometimes police officers in Denver and other cites in Colorado will use pacing as a method to clock a driver’s speed.

In order for the technique to work properly, the officer must keep a constant distance between his police cruiser or motorcycle and the driver’s car. Things that can impact an officer’s pacing technique include curves in the road, pacing for short distances, traffic signs and signals, lighting conditions, roadway interchanges, heavy traffic, busy intersections, and other factors on the road.

If an officer is pacing from further back, the pacing method becomes less accurate. The most accurate method results from an officer pacing immediately behind a driver’s vehicle for a reasonable distance.

There are various cross-examination techniques an experienced traffic lawyer can use to prove that the officer’s pacing method may not be as accurate as he claims. A good cross-examination in this area can assist the trier of fact in determining that the case has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve

Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
