How Police Officer Interactions Impact Your Stunt Driving Case

Why Stunt Driving Charges Are More Than Just a Police Officer’s behaviour

Have you been recently charged with Stunt Driving? Were you left with a bitter taste because of your interaction with the police officer? Many people feel the same way. But here’s something crucial to understand: Your feelings about the police officer don’t always play a role in your charge.

Common Misunderstandings About Stunt Driving Charges

Many individuals voice their concerns about their experiences:

  • Being left stranded by the police officer.
  • Not being shown the radar reading.
  • Facing rudeness or a lack of professionalism.
  • Brief arrests.
  • Numerous other grievances.

However, the core issue in the eyes of the law isn’t your personal interaction with the officer. If you were caught speeding at a level that’s categorized as Stunt Driving, then typically that’s enough for a conviction.

Can the Officer’s Behaviour Help My Case?

In short, not really. Whether an officer treated you kindly or was short-tempered, it doesn’t generally affect the validity of the radar reading. Officers are human, and they can have varied interactions with the public. The primary thing that matters: Did they follow the correct procedure?

They’ll provide a detailed account of their interaction with you via the Disclosure—a collection of evidence submitted to the court. This record covers their notes about the charge and your interaction, which becomes a part of the court’s evidence for your Stunt Driving case.

So, I’m Guilty and That’s It?

Definitely not! A charge is just the first step. Even if initially, things seem bleak with a 14-day car impoundment and a 30-day license suspension, there’s more to the story.

Pause and Think: A Stunt Driving charge can have severe consequences, such as job loss, inability to cater to family needs, or even emergencies. Don’t minimize it as a simple traffic violation. Imagine a life where you can’t drive for a whole year. It’s a big deal.

Get Proper Legal Advice – It’s Crucial!

This isn’t just an advertisement pitch; it’s a genuine call to action. Reach out and seek free legal guidance. Specialized law firms in Stunt Driving cases might have a roadmap to navigate these challenges.

What should I do if I have been charged with Stunt Driving and feel that the police officer did not treat me fairly?

The specifics of the interaction between you and the police officer are generally not taken into consideration when it comes to a Stunt Driving charge. If the radar device caught you at a speed classified as Stunt Driving, that is enough to be convicted in most circumstances. The law does not generally care about the behaviour of the officer as long as they are following procedure.

Can I fight the Stunt Driving charge if the police officer was rude or treated me unfairly?

No, the behaviour of the police officer is not a valid defence against a Stunt Driving charge. The only thing that can help you prove that the radar device was incorrect is evidence and it is important to get legal advice as soon as possible after being charged. A proper law firm that specializes in Stunt Driving may have a strategy to prevent license suspension.
