I was driving in Iceland in June and received a speeding ticket which I absolutely know was a mistake on the part of the officer. I saw a car on the side of the road well ahead (2-3km), and was not speeding (we had seen so many police we knew not to speed), but an oncoming car was. The oncoming car had already passed the police car, so the officer probably thought he wouldn't speed so soon afterwards, and the driver probably thought he was far enough away to speed up.
Well, he was, because the officer cited me for it! The ticket is from Seydisfjordur, at 106km/hr. (in a 90km zone) Based on his rush to get me to admit guilt and get me out of his car, I can tell he was just out there churning revenue for the local council. I refuted and disputed his account of things the entire time in his car, but received a ticket anyway.
It was only 22.500 (split four ways), but I want to contest this on the grounds that it was completely false. Are there any ways to go about this? Has anyone had any success?
Thanks in advance for any help.Edited: 08 July 2014, 18:52
