    If A Cop Doesn't Show Up To Court

    If a cop doesn't show up to court for a speeding ticket, does the case usually get thrown out, or does the judge usually grant a continence. I've heard about both, and was wondering how many of you have had a cop not show up to court for a fine, and what happened?

    I was in a zone that is usually 65 mph, and they decided to put some orange ****ing signs there with "45 mph" near where I got pulled over, and said it was a construction zone. The cop gave me a $470 fine.......

    Am I good if he doesn't show?

    Good luck with that. I hate the double fine for working zones!

    sometimes it will get tossed. You best bet is to talk to the DA or w.e its called having a brain fart right now. But they are the ones you make a deal with. Every time with me they see i have a clean record and put me on probation or just wave it

    The worst part is that there are two lanes where I got pulled over. I'm usually in the left lane, but there are the dirt roads on that side where the cops usually hide, so I decided to go into the right lane, hoping my chances of getting pulled over are reduced. However, I have seen a decent amount of times that the right lane has multiple cop cars lined up pulling people over, and today was the ONE day in the past few months that I went in the right lane.

    He somehow estimated I was going 71 mph as well.........

    If the cop doesn't show up, ask the judge for the case to be dismissed. You have to ask for it, don't assume they will do it automatically. But yeah, if you don't ask, the judge may order a continuance.

    My roomate just told me that the cop doesn't need to show up because the court pays a cop to do all of the hearings that day.......

    I hope he's wrong though.

    pretty sure he is wrong, what will a cop that wasnt there when it happened have anything to do with the ticket?

    Depends on the state. In MD the case is automatically dismissed. In NJ, the court will grant a continuance.

    extend the court date the day before the actual date. sometimes, rarely, you can extend it twice. rinse and repeat. I've had two cases dismissed because I extended the dates and the officer never showed up, one being on July 5th. Guess the cop was too busy partying the night before.

    It would be retarded for a trooper/officer to show up to every court date they give out a ticket for.

    OP, is your ticket a must-appear ticket? Or are you just contesting it?

    i had this happen, was going 64 in a 55, waived my right to traffic school, made a medical excuse for the hearing (because the cop sets a date that is for a huge number of the tickets), got my court date extended by 2 days (from a tuesday to a thursday), and the judge dismissed it. then again, the guy in front of me was going 108 and the cop didnt show up and the judge still dismissed it but he was almost mad that he had to. He told the guy PLEASE FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERY1 slow down. hahaha

    problem is, if u waive ur right to traffic school to get it dismissed and the cop does show up and u lose, it'll be on your record. best bet is to try to get the date changed by a couple days for some excuse and hope the cop is working or isnt there that day. if he does show up, say that you showed up because you were unaware that you were in a construction zone and would like to receive a smaller fee and the right for traffic school (so that it doesnt go on your record).. tough situation

    Not really, the court schedules all of a police officer's court dates in groups. Plus, many people just pay their tickets.

    Since the cop that pulled me over has everything written down, they will give it to the cop at court. No cop is going to remember every person they pull over, and they use their writing's when they do go to court.

    Yes, it's my first ticket, and I agree that he'll probably show up......

    It would be retarded for a trooper/officer to show up to every court date they give out a ticket for.

    OP, is your ticket a must-appear ticket? Or are you just contesting it?
    I'm just contesting it. I think I would be required to show if it were $500+......

    I went to my prehearing, had to ended up getting a court date because the law had just changed and no one knew what it was changed to. While scheduling a date I told them to keep in mind I have classes. Well they assured me I'd get out before my class started. I went to court and waited 45 minutes and the assistant DA comes up to me and says "Well the Judge is still on his way and might not be here for a while and if the Officer doesn't show, you'll get to leave with nothing on your record about this." Well 20 minutes went by and "Officer BoBo" never showed. Never paid or recorded my "multiple traffic violations." Plus I've heard of several girl's getting out of tickets by the cop not showing but good luck to you.

    In Chicago they throw them out if the cop is not there...normally have my wife go who's an attorney, our 'case' goes first as she is an attorney, no cop thrown out. Done it a couple of times and she does it for hire as well.

    Maybe in your county.

    In our county court, the trooper or officer sets everyone's court date usually a 1.5 to 2.5 weeks in the future. For most tickets, they don't have to appear in court, they would only appear if they would like to contest it. If they would like to contest it, then they would speak with the judge. The troopers/officers are not there during the traffic court dates for each ticket they wrote.

    But yes, most do just pay their fine..

    I was in a zone that is usually 65 mph, and they decided to put some orange ****ing signs there with "45 mph" near where I got pulled over, and said it was a construction zone. The cop gave me a $470 fine.......

    just a thought:


    don't speed anymore, stay within <2mph of posted speed limit
    save speeding for night time or leave 10-30mins earlier (they did studies where going 75 vs 65 avg spd only saved <10 mins)
    youre not alpha paying $2k in insurance a yr, if u hate cops follow all traffic laws to the letter so the dumb kunt cant light you up for anything


    just my input

    How did they clock you @ 71mph, radar gun or eyeball guesstimate?

    If radar: Ask the court to produce the Certificate of Compliance for the radar equipment used that day.

    If eyeball guesstimate: pepper your angus.

    Looking at the ticket and the boxes he checked, it looks like this

    Posted: x
    Not Posted: x
    LIDAR: x

    Clocked: Nothing checked
    Radar: Nothing checked
    Estimated: x

    The "x" is for the boxes he checked, so I guess whatever that means.

    It means the cop has no objective way to determine how fast you were going; he just saw you go by and figured "Hmm, that looks like it must be about 71mph."
    So it's his word against yours.
    Guess which has more clout in a court of law?

    It's better than having him have clocked me then. I haven't had a ticket before, so I hope that will help me out.

    doesn't always get thrown out. depends on the charge, the police report, and how the judge is feeling that day

    a continuance is just a delay. u need to file for one before your court date to increase the chances the cop won't show

    but yea, when you ask to have the case dismissed, you have to say you have the right to question your accuser (the DA and the cop) and if they aren't present, the judge may nullify the charge. it's a big risk
