Two weeks ago, I was issued an "unlawful speeding" ticket for going 64 mph in a 45 mph zone. These roads are very tricky, as the speed limit constantly changes from 65 to 45 and the change in zones caught me off guard.
I'm 20 years old (driving for two years) but I have never received a driving citation before. My goal here is: 0 points assessed against my Driver's license and to pay no fine.
The county that my ticket was issued in, offers a driving school, which will negate points on my record. However, I have to then pay the original fine.
If I contest this in court, can I avoid the fine and the points? If I lose in court, will I have to pay the fine and be docked points on my record? If the cop who issued the ticket doesn't show up, can't I avoid a fine AND points?
