No. Speeding is a strict liability crime. The reason why you exceeded the speed limit is not relevant. The state must only prove that you exceeded the safe and prudent speed by 20-39 mph to convict you of the 6 pt speeding offense. If you want to try and reduce the ticket farther than a 2 pt reduction, consider hiring a traffic attorney to assist you.

Trying to justify exceeding the speed limit based on surrounding circumstances can only be used in very specific situations that do not apply in this case. Contesting the ticket should be based on the validity of the recording system or the position of the office to utilize the system properly. Your best option is a possible plea agreement for a reduced charge. I would consult with an attorney before you engage in negotiations to put you in the best possible position to reduce the risk of increased insurance premiums.
Since speeding is a strict liability crime, you are not likely to "beat it." Expect a 2 point reduction to a 4-point speeding ticket or possibly even a three point ticket.
