The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards is requiring that all police officers who are Speed Measurement Operators must be recertified by 12/31/2014 (every 5 years). If an officer fails to be recertified, his or her speeding ticket may subject to attack. Any citations issued for speed, whether through RADAR or LIDAR, could be dismissed or not upheld in court if the operator has not been recertified.
If you were ticketed for a traffic civil infraction (speeding, traffic accident, failure to obey a traffic control device, careless driving, etc…) or a traffic misdemeanor (DWLS, OWI, DUI, Reckless Driving, No Proof of Insurance, Failure to Stop at Accident, etc…), you need good legal representation to help keep your driving record intact and keep your insurance rates from going up.
