Q: How do I check to see if the officers speed equipment was working properly at the time of my stop?

A: Virginia Code Section 46.2-882 requires that officers provide proof, upon proper request, that their individual speed checking equipment has been tested and calibrated every six months. But, this is not an issue to be relied upon by traffic defendants. Today’s traffic officers are professionals and these types of mistakes are rare. A good local attorney can help you formulate a successful strategy for your case.
