In August of 2011, Miller-Cerasuolo represented a client in the Sussex General District Court in Waverly, VA. The client, a Virginia resident, was driving in Sussex County when he was pulled over for traveling 53 mph in a 35 mph zone. The Officer charged him with Speeding, Virginia Code Section: G.46.2-875- an Infraction that is four demerit points on a Virginia driving record. The client retained our services after a no-obligation phone consultation with one of our Attorneys. In Court, our Attorney tried the case and was able to get the charge completely dismissed because the Officer was using faulty equipment. The Officer was using LIDAR, short for Light Detection And Ranging, which is an optical remote sensing technology that uses light to measure distance and speed. According to State Law, LIDAR must be recalibrated every six months by each officer that uses it. This particular Officer had not calibrated is LIDAR in the past fifteen months. In result, all charges were dropped and the client did not owe any fines or Court costs.
