Case #: 2017-CT-3**4
The client was stopped at a red light in a Camaro. A police officer was stopped on the adjacent roadway out of sight. The officer alleges that the client reeved the engine, punched the gas, and squealed the tires taking off from the light. The officer estimated the Camaro was traveling in excess of 80 miles per hour in the 45 mile per hour zone. The client was pulled over and during the stop the client admitted that he was “testing his car for the track this weekend”. After reviewing the all the evidence with the client the attorney filed a Motion to Dismiss based upon the racing statute being unconstitutional as applied to the client. Two days later the Assistant State Attorney conceded stating that the motion was likely to be granted. Client never had to appear in court.
