I think a more likely scenario is that the radar gun showed the driver's correct speed, but the cop could not produce evidence that he was certified to use it, so it was not admissible as evidence (which is the way it should be IMHO). That means that the cop's estimate of the speed was off by ~10mph, but even with such a large margin of error is enough to prove "guilt" in the sham that is traffic court.

The whole thing stinks, and makes me regret moving back to Ohio. Some things are truly backwards here.
