That is quote possible for a Focus to do that. .3mi is slightly longer than a 1/4 mile, and a stock Focus can trap the 1/4 mile 80MPH.

So if you really are innocent, you might need to look into another defense other than "Its impossible for a Focus to do that".

u still might be able to use that defense. just change the wording from "impossible" to "I would have had to been flooring it for the entire .3 mile."

was there anyone at the gas station - or video cameras? do you have the reciept from the gas station? You may be able to prove that you weren't by the manner in which you left the gas station?

Knowing that you may have done 60 and not the claimed 75, when the limit is 35 . . . no matter what your argument is, doesn't change the fact you where speeding.

Pay the fine and quit bitching about it. Pay attention next time.
