What do you do after getting a speeding ticket?
I just received my first speeding ticket (79 in a 65), and I was wondering what other people in my same predicament would do or have done.
I basically have three options:
Pay the ticket and get 3 points on my license (insurance goes up)
Try to find a lawyer that can get me out of it (expensive)
Or try to convince the DA office to lower the ticket (still get 1-2 points on license)
I usually do not speed more than 5 over...I was going down a hill on the highway not paying attention.
Does anyone have any alternatives that they can think of, or any suggestions on which option above would have the best outcome?
