You've already admitted guilt: To yourself, to us, and to God.
But for real pay the piper, if you plead not guilty and the cop shows up to bust your ass, then you'll have to pay the fine plus you no longer can take traffic school for the ticket, that equals 2 points to the insurance company (one point for the DMV) and that means your insurance will go up considerably.
0-10 MPH over the speed limit = 1 insurance point
10-XX MPH over the speed limit = 2 insurance points.
they've got a different point system. my advice is pay the ticket and take traffic school, you can even take it online.
