Defending a LIDAR Ticket
Lidar is different from Radar. Instead of using radio frequencies to measure speed, Lidar uses an infrared laser that measures the distance of a car traveled over a period of time and calculates the velocity (speed). There are many ways to win a Lidar ticket.
How Do You Know If Lidar Was Used?
The officer will sometimes tell you how your speed was measured during the vehicle stop. If not it will say on the ticket. Look in the lower middle right and there will be a box that says “lidar” and space for the officer to write a serial number. This will be used later in court.
What The Officer Has To Bring To Court?
In order to prove the elements of a speeding ticket measured with lidar the officer must bring
- A front and back copy of the original citation, including any officer notes on the back of the ticket.
- Proof that the lidar device the officer used to measure the speed was accurate and working properly on the day of the citation.
- A good memory of the events giving rise to the citation.
- Has the Officer been trained to use the lidar gun properly?
- Has the Officer completed at least 24 hours of a Radar (yes radar) Operator Course as required by California Vehicle Code 40802(c)(1)(A)?
- Was the lidar gun properly calibrated?
- Does the lidar gun meet or exceed the minimal operational standards of the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration as required by California Vehicle Code 40802(c)(1)(D)?
- Has the lidar been calibrated within the three years prior to the date of the alleged violation by an independent certified laser or radar repair and testing or calibration facility as required by California Vehicle Code 40802(c)(1)(D)?
- Did the officer use the lidar gun in accordance with its manufacturer’s specifications?
- Did the officer lidar the correct vehicle?
- Did the radar make any technical errors like bouncing where the lidar beam hits a different part of the vehicle at the beginning of the measurement then at the end of the measurement.
- Did the officer test the device for accuracy before and after his shift?

Was pulled over in a school zone on the second day of school and 45 minutes before school started. I was clocked going 42 mph in a 25mph zone. Case was dismissed. A massive ticket was prevented. Fabian is amazing. Highly recommend them to anyone. They get things done and are extremely professional. Randall S.
Have been using there services for 4 years now 3 tickets later & still no points on my record all tickets dismissed!
Can’t emphasize how much Scott Hullinger, Attorney at Law does for his and her customers. He is professional and top notch. I highly recommended his services.
the best, would not use or even recommend anyone else....
I would definitely recommend Scott and I hope I won't get another ticket but if I ever do, I will hire him immediately he's not only polite, dedicated but very professional. I am really happy with the results of my traffic violation ticket. Thank you Scott
Glenn Prentice--These are the best---going a steep down hill grade on I-8 I was busted by the CHP going 84 in a 70mph zone . They were very honest with me--giving me a 50% chance of dismissal---They did cade was dismissed--Thank you very much ticket King!
Keep shopping, this "service" will not help u save one single dollar. U will lose time, energy, & $ with these guys. I provided dash cam footage on a special Zip drive and he didn't even use it. I could've asked the officer that wrote my ticket to dismiss it and asked my judge for leniency/a reduction, without paying $149. I still owe the full fine $401. I should've just set the 149 dollars that Scott charged me on fire. Even after years of law school, my representation put in as little effort as humanly possible. Waste of so much time, energy, & money.
When you slip in life, they're there to catch you.
