Yes you can.

>That's liabel,

It is not libel, that they were speeding is a true statement.
Truth is an absolute defense against a charge of libel.

>and it is illegal (and wrong).

And what law does it violate?

as previous respondent said

"In the north-american country I happen to live in, you do not need
'authority' to express your opinions."

I suspect I live in the same country, and here you need even less (i.e. 
zero) 'authority' to express that which is true.

good day
