Jury is the way to go if your going to fight this on your own. However, keep in mind that fighting a speeding ticket in Texas is extremely difficult unless you have hard evidence you were not speeding at the time of the citation. Hiring an attorney is a good idea in this situation.
Are you setting it for trial because the court will not offer you deferred disposition or defensive driving? Taking one of those options, though deferred might be the only one offered since you got the ticket in a construction zone, would be more advisable than going to trial.
