My wife got a speeding ticket in town today. She was going down hill on a 4 lane mixed business/residential street, speed limit was 25mph. The LEO was at the bottom of the hill (which is known for cars going relatively fast), and clocked her at 41, 16 over. 16-19 over is a ticket that will cost her $114 and 4 points, under 16 over, we're not sure about.
She confesses she was speeding, and she said she might have been going 41, she didn't really know.
We haven't had any speeding tickets between us ever, so I'm not sure how to handle it. I have a feeling that if she contends the ticket, she'll get a break (she obviously won't fight the whole thing, she WAS speeding), but is it worth the hassle of going to court?Her driving record is spotless, aside from hitting a deer and totaling her car a couple years ago.
I don't want this thread to turn into typical TCL 'quit bitching and pay it, you sped, now pay the consequences' thread, I'd just like some advice on whether or not to contest it to get the fine and points reduced.
Oh, and before anyone posts it, we aren't lawyering up.
On a side note, did you see FABEL's THIRD frame thread got locked?
