NTSA Officer: Your honor the accused person was overspeeding….we had speed guns measuring the speed of the accused’s car.
Counsel for the Accused: At what speed was he driving?
NTSA Officer: It was about 120 km/hr, way above the prescribed limit.
Counsel for the accused: How were you able to apprehend the accused person?
NTSA Officer: We chased after the accused’s car for more than five kilometers, when we were able to block it.
Counsel for the accused: what was your speed, if you were chasing a fleeing car, going at more than 120 km/hr?
NTSA Officer: …er….er…..er ….I am sorry I didn’t look at the speedometer
Counsel for the accused: Can we assume you were driving at more than 120 km/hr now that you were fast enough to outrun the fleeing car and block it? In the process committing a crime, putting your life, the life of the accused person, and the lives of several other motorists at grave risk by your dangerous and careless driving?
NTSA Officer: I am not the one on trial …..
