b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_716607445.jpgBeing charged with aggravated speeding is very serious and may come with undesired consequences. No matter what the reason may be, it is best to adhere to the speed limit when on the roads. If caught speeding, especially if at a high rate, you may lose potential employment opportunities, driving privileges, and overall quality of life.

Enforcement of Aggravated Speeding

In order to determine the speed that each vehicle is going, law enforcement uses all types of radar devices, including hand-held radar, moving radar, pacing radar, laser speed measurement, photo speed enforcement, and air speed measurement.
