Towed for Excessive Speed Avoiding a Tailgater
I received a excessive speeding ticket while on my motorcycle in June 2016. I stated to the police officer that I was attempting to elude a tailgater, which he did not see of course.
The tailgater positioned himself behind my bike 3 times in 3 kilometers before I sped off to go to a public venue with cameras should the tailgater cause me trouble.
Cop got me at roughly 4 kilometer mark of this endeavor and pulled over at about 5 kilometer mark for the police officer. I was of course compliant and well behaved with the police officer but bike was still towed and impounded for 7 days.
What, if anything can I do to fight this in court?
I have no information on the tailgater other than it was a white gmc pick up and the word of the passenger I had on the bike with me. There was another couple on a second bike with me, they can also state same. His bike was clocked at 140km in a 90km zone and the cop said, "and you (meaning me) were keeping pace.
I look forward to your reply.
