OT: Speeding Ticket
Need some help guys. I got a speeding ticket the other day. Does anyone know the ins and outs and if its worth fighting and better yet can I win? Here is a breakdown of what happened.
Thursday 1:30 AM. Coming home from cleveland in my 2008 Red Mitsubishi Lancer on interstate 77S. Im driving, wife in passenger seat, my sister,her husband and my 2 year old in the back. (My 2 year old is in a car seat and is asleep). We are coming back from creed concert. A Ohio State Highway Patrol Officer is coming North on 77. There is absolutley no traffic in either direction. I dont know its him till he lights it up and pulls into the median behind me. I am going 75+ in a 65. I slow down, without hitting brake, to 65. he pulls me over. I roll down all the windows ( they are actually to dark for ohio which is 50% and they are 30%) and I turn on the dome lights and put my hands on the wheel. He comes up and asks for license. I give him the licnese. he said " where you coming from" I said creed concert. He said" do you know you were speeding?" I said "yes sir, I was going a little over the limit, Im sorry". He said he got me at 80 in 65 on radar coming the opposite way. I dont mind the ticket price 110.00, I just dont want points. what can I do? I was polite the entire time and never talked back to him.
