I just got a speeding ticket today around rt 123 and 66 in fairfax
county. The cop was using a radar to track my speed a head and as soon
as i saw him i slow down (before I pass him) but he still pull me over
and told me i was driving 59 on 35. Honestly, I didnt even look at my
meter to see how fast i was driving and i am not sure if i am driving
on 59 mph. That is the number the cop give me. And my fine is $200
and i am guessing is about 6 points. So my questions are:
1) Should I go to court and try to reduce the fine? If so, what is my
2) how many point is that speeding ticket?
I move to VA last year and my last speeding ticket i got was 2 to 3
years ago. I lived in PA before.

Yep, it's taxation alright. :-( I've had my fair share as well. I always
just pay the man as it's not worth takin' off work. Just remember all
the times you didn't get caught. Once I got two tickets in two weeks
then got pulled over again for 93 in a 75 and he let me go. Needless to
say, after I pulled away I went straight to best buy and bought the top
of the line radar detector for $360 and haven't had one since.

Find one of those ticket defense lawyers in your area and pay them to
fix it. There's no use ruining your record, and they can get the
ticket wiped for about the cost of the fine, and in your case, maybe
I know there's some people that are against this, I used to be one of
them, but lawyers have made ALL of our lives so miserable. Sometimes
it's necessary to harness the dark side to make things work in our
favor for a change...
