Got a speeding ticket (38 in 25) in VA. Have a good driving record , +3 (+5 being perfect) No record of speeding ticket last 11 years, according to DMV's diver's record, though I had one speeding ticket about 8 months ago (went to court & got it lowered to imperfect equipment). It doesn't show as a moving violation. Other than that, I haven't had a speeding ticket for 19 years! It seems ever since I started driving my little BMW Z-4 last two years, I've been harassed by cops more times than 20 plus some years of my entire driving history... Anyway, if I hire an attorney, what are the chances that he/she'll be able to win the case, or at least lower the charges? Also, would it be helpful to bring DMV record to court even with 'imperfect equipment' conviction on the paper?
