You need to consult with a traffic attorney near you. In the meantime, stop relying on cruise control and instead be the slowest driver on the road.


Your ticket is a substitute for your license and in lieu of bond, so you can continue to drive but you really need a lawyer. If you have a working speedometer in your vehicle, you should have known you were speeding, regardless of the computer, even if you did not know the exact speed. A lawyer will help you minimize the damages.

By the way - Are you aware that you can drive faster than the setiting on your cruise control and that if you take your foot off the accelerator, your speed will return to the preset speed?


You can drive on the ticket. A lawyer can probably save your supervision and maybe get it for the newest offense
