Speeding ticket
 
I was driving on highway late night when an ambulance was behind me.
I put my right directional on so the ambulance could safetly pass. A few
minutes later I was pulled over and given a speeding citation 80in a 55.

The officer checked off on the citation that it was an estimated speed.
Because I was clearing the way for a medical emergency do you think the
courts will inderstand with all things considered.



Do I Have a chance. I wasn't speeding

Scottsman,

Welcome to the forum.

What is the state and town where this occured? Was it a state trooper or a local officer. Does the citation have any specifics of the alleged violation?

May be a police laser (LIDAR) speeding ticket
 
It sounds to me that he is indicating that he employed police laser (aka police lidar) to obtain your alleged speed.

Were you driving with a radar detector (which can also detect police lidar)?

If it were police laser, targeting distances in the evening can be pretty extreme (above 1500-2000 feet away). If he was sitting on the side or in the median dark, it would be awfully hard to pick him out at that distance in the evening.

If LIDAR were used, it wouldn't be estimated, it would be precise (perhaps even into the 10th of mph).

Was a distance indicated on your citation?

If you are unfamiliar with police lidar, may I suggest this online guide to police lidar.
