Default Escort don't want to pay my ticket!

They kept ignoring my messages as if I didn't matter. One responses from "Markus" may even imply he "lost" all documents I submitted so I could get reimbursed! Oh well!

So I got another $40 ticket. The ticket stated I was doing 37 on a 25. I thought 12 mph was still OK?

Should I request a trial and contest this?

There seem to be some missing details here, ZDA. What were the circumstances? How did you try to contact Escort? Did you purchase a detector during the promotion period? What detector were you using? Was it purchased directly from Escort?

Ticket protection from Escort is usually a limited-time promotion (not any sort of blanket protection), and it's usually only offered for the detectors covered during the promotion period, and only if purchased directly from Escort.

More details would help.

Kindly provide more information before taking any actions.

Yea your missing quit a few details. If you were in a 25 zone I'm thinking that was a school zone. Here the lowest posted speed limit on a public road is 30mph. You probably got a break and just got a regular 12 over ticket and not a school zone ticket. If that's the case pay it and be happy or try to get into a deferral program. As far as you thought you were ok at 12 over, lol really? Heck an officer could write you for 5 over if they want. Most have a 10mph threshold some even 15. Some start at 7 or 8, who knows.

If you are referring to a speed camera ticket, at least in MD, the allowed cutoff is 11 mph. If you were going 12 mph over you are fair game and the fine is $40 no matter what the speed. If it is a speed camera ticket, they are very difficult to beat if not impossible. You'd have to check all the relevant regs for the specific jurisdiction (like permissible hours of operation etc).
