This is the second infraction within the year for going over the speed limit. First infraction I took traffic school to keep off of my record. I would really like to keep my record clean and am wondering about how I should challenge the ticket. The radar caught me going 77 in a 55 mph zone, I was driving in a passing lane, on a upgrade which quickly followed a downhill slope. I was actually following a few other cars that were ahead of me. This happened in Taft California in Kern County. How many points would this be, how much would it increase my insurance, is it fair to say I could beat it in court by myself and what would be the over all cost to hire a lawyer and if so would my record stay clean if proven not guilty. Thank you for your response.
