Speeding ticket

So this guy in an Audi was trying to race me but I obviously beat him because I drive a BMW but as I passed him I noticed the cop pulling out after me. He pulled me over and said I was speeding. 20 mph in a 10 mph zone. I said "no way the steering wheel shimmies at 15". He didn't buy it and gave me a ticket for 10 over. He said he got me with laserz but my radarz never went off. What a piece of junk! I think if I can get it down to 5 over I can avoid the "super speeder" penalty. Should I lawyer up or go to traffic school?

Is this real life? Pay your ticket, go on with life.

You are talking like you got a 25 over. Suck it up and pay the ticket. Buy the time you get a lawyer you will have paid a ton in lawyer fees.

Not often you see folks get a ticket for doing DOUBLE the speeding limit

Not worth lawyering up to me. 10 over isn't too bad.

Always take them to court. Can't count how many I've beat. Just go and do your homework beforehand. Good luck!

something tells me this is a joke...I've never seen a 10 MPH zone and why would you be racing someone in one?

Damn you could have killed a fly at that speed, don't even need a COBB for that LOL. How fast was the race 0-20 ? 1 second? Cop is a DICK! 10 MPH over is the standard. If I drove my bicycle fast I could have gotten a ticket for 20 mph over. Pay the ticket and go on with your life. I had a ticket for 45 over now thats what I call a ticket.

How can you race and beat a car 20mph?
There are no 10mph zones.

Racing in a school zone? Bad

Go to the court clerk, tell them you want to plea "Not Guilty". They will give you a preliminary court date with District Attorney. When you se the DA, they will offer you either trial in front of the Judge or convert your ticket in to a Parking Ticket with half the fine and no point. Take the deal, pay the fine and move on.
I got out of 3 tickets like that. That's what those traffic lawyers do.
