I got a speeding ticket for going 81 on a 65 and plus I had expired insurance card but I do have insurance. Now I have to pay 1226 for both violations.
You can get traffic school if the judge will allow it on the speeding ticket. With proof of insurance, the other charge should be dismissed. Good luck.
Contest the citation and see if it gets dismissed. If the officer does not show up it will be dismissed. If you have an attorney they may be able to get the speed reduce to 80 mph which can knock over $100 off the fine for that violation. Showing proof of getting insurance after the incident should work to reduce the fine on that violation from $880 to around half of that. It is worth the time to go to court and fight it or at least show proof of the insurance instead of just paying the whole fine.
You should fight the ticket. Hire a traffic attorney to help you. Good luck.

Fight it, there is always the chance that the officer may not show up and the tickets get dismissed.
This is general information and not legal advice. This communication does not create a lawyer-client relationship.
You should fight the ticket. You could get the ticket dismissed altogether or you could at least get the points associated with ticket waived. It is usually beneficially to consult with a lawyer in your area, however I suggest fighting the ticket in general, even if you chose to do so yourself.
That is your choice. If you want to fight, hire an attorney- your chances of prevailing will be greatly improved thereby.
