Alrighty so just had court.
I had found info of LIDAR Guns (laser detector or wtvr) where they all clearly indicate that they are only accurate to +/- 1 mph... which is exactly what I would of been arguing for.
Right before, the prosecutor came up to me and asked if I wanted to negotiate. So she said she was only "authorized" to drop it down to the closest bracket, but not any more than that. I didn't argue and took the deal. 1 less point and a smaller fine (i think i saved like 30$ plus admin fees, also have 3 months to pay the fine).
Thing is, she also explained to me that the "documents" i printed out - ie: the LIDAR gun specs - wouldn't be admissible as evidence, since there would have to be an expert to "validate" the info. Doesn't matter for this case, but hopefully, next month when I need to drop 4 km/h, the prosecutor isn't stuck up.
The judge can't credit partial points, either all or nothing (as the prosecutor stated). So now I'll need to come up with a compelling argument just in case for my next trial.
