I was wondering what I should do about my speeding ticket?

Asked almost 6 years ago - Spokane, WA

I was making the 4-6 minute drive to college. I made a left turn and started going down hill for about 30 seconds. I then was looking at my surroundings for about ten seconds and realized I was gaining on the car in front of me so I immediatly slowed down and set my cruise control for 30. The cop at the bottom of the hill gave me a ticket for going 10 over. Is my case good enough to contest on the ground of reaction time and that I was being a safe driver watching my surroundings? Even though I was guilty of speeding, can I plea not guilty for circumstances?
