Re: Would I have any luck fighting this?
If you were speeding and the cop put the correct speed you were doing on the ticket, then I'd pay the fine.
Guilt is guilt. However, a bad cop is a bad cop. If you have the time, call his superior. Tell that superior everything you have stated here. I'd guess this cop has had other complaints. It might not do any good, but you never know.
