Perfect excuse (If you can prove it).

I tried this one once, in New York back in 1965. The whole incident was somewhat amusing (even though I did end up getting a ticket), because I was driving through the Bronx when I spotted a cop in an unmarked Plymouth following me, so I slowed down to 55. After a mile or so, the cop, a young guy, put on his flashing lights and pulled me over. He said he had closcked me at 55, and when I said that that was the speed limit, he pointed to a large sign almost directly in front of my car showing the limit as 45 - he had really timed his pulling me over well so that I stopped right in view of the sign. When he finished writing out the ticket, he started asking about my car (it was a new 1965 Ford) and what kind of engine it had. I told him it had a 289 V-8, and he said I should have outrun him instead of stopping, because the piece of s*** he was driing (to quote him) couldn't keep up with me. I told him if I had tried that, I'm sure he would have radioed ahead to the toll booth up the road to stop me he said he would have, but that it would have been fun. No kidding, he really said that! It probably was my ost enjoyable ticket (not that I have gotten that many over the years - I think that the total is six, including one each iin Germany and Italy, and one on a military post).

i actually got out of a ticket with this excuse because a tree branch was blocking part of the sign.

If it's not posted, you'll get off with a warning at most.

Might work if true. One of my old friends contested a speeding ticket because the speed sign was taken down, and he was driving in unfamiliar territory, so it was excused.
