you screwed up. You should have asked the following questions: "May I see the radar gun?" "When was the last time this radar gun was calibrated?" "Can you provide documentation showing when this radar gun was last calibrated?" "Are you aware that the margin of error for even a calibrated radar gun can be as much as 4 miles per hour? "Did you know the margin of error for a speedometer is approximately 5 miles per hour?"

Unless the cop was standing directly in front of or behind your car, the speed you were ticketed for was less than what you were actually traveling. Cosine effect on RADAR/LIDAR is always in the favor of the driver.
