Should I look at getting a lawyer? I'm pretty scared ****less of the possibilities that can happen to me. This is my first ticket, but i don't know if it'll make a difference.
you done screwed up ........... probably sped in a work zone .......... Damn lucky your ass isnt in jail, Reckless is a heavy charge ........
what ever you do dont tell the judge you wasnt paying attention and just flowing with traffic ...........
i would go see the DA first , strike a deal, if a deal cant be made get a lawyer .As gonzo said , get a speedo repair ticket , that will cover about 7 mPH of that 83 , and yes that makes a difference ...........
Chances are you will walk away with Careless or even speeding
