    6 Bikes, one Radar , 6 tickets

    North Carolina. Me and six of my friends where riding our motorcycles when we where pulled over by a NC State Trooper. He issued us all speeding tickets for going 77mph in a 55mph zone. I asked him which one of us did his radar clock going 77mph and he stated "all of us". How can this be so if a radar is designed to detect the fastest moving object out of a group of objects? This would mean that if im passed by a car that is speeding that i am going just as fast as the speeder at the moment the speeder passes me. I feel if the Trooper cant specify the one motorcycle that was alledgedly clocked going 77mph, all the tickets should be dismissed on the grounds that a radar can only clock one vehicle at a time. He clocked us while traveling in the onbound lane so he wasnt pacing our speed.

    You can certainly raise that as an argument in court however if he clocks one person speeding, and the rest of you are all travelling the same speed, it is reasonable to conclude that the rest of you were speeding.
