Can you discuss some of your Florida traffic cases that involve the use of technology?
Answer: Yes. If you want to take—and it’s not just the Waze app—but, if you want to take, there are electronic GPS apps and things that are out there, that when somebody is driving down the road, it basically tells you not only what’s going on up ahead, but it tells you what your real-time speed is. And some of the applications have the ability for you to be able to snapshot, if you will, the period of time where the officer alleges that you were speeding, and at least it gives us something to hang our hat on when we go to traffic court, because in Florida, traffic tickets—especially speeding tickets—have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. So any hole that we can poke in the validity or reliability of the speed measurement device—whether it’s being paced, or radar, or laser—to be able to contradict that by use of other evidence, you know, I’ve seen people use it and I’ve used it with my clients to mitigate their damages in certain instances. If I have a cooperative officer and someone with a good record, maybe they would be willing to drop the speed or maybe even dismiss it.
