Many Baltimore City DUI/DWI investigations start because a driver is speeding. Sometimes police officers "pace" a vehicle to determine its speed.
A "pace" is where a Baltimore City DUI/DWI police officer maintains a constant distance from your vehicle in order to determine what speed your vehicle is traveling.
Here, is how the Baltimore City prosecutor proves your car was speeding:
The prosecutor needs to prove that the police officer's pace was: (1) done by a vehicle properly tested and checked; (2) operated by a competent police officer; (3) proper procedures were followed; and (4) proper records kept.
Your Baltimore City DUI/DWI attorney can challenge the "pace" of your vehicle by showing that the proper foundation has not been laid by the prosecutor. Additionally, your attorney can challenge the certification or calibration of the police officer's vehicle by showing that it is hearsay, and not admissible.
