In most cases, you will have to hire an attorney for the best chance to avoid points on your record. Generally (although not in all cases), first offense speeding tickets are either 1) amended to a no points violation or 2) you are put on a type of probation known as a suspended imposition of sentence, which gives you a chance to avoid points if you avoid trouble for a specific period of time (for example 1 year). In any event, if you show up on your own to court and plead guilty, you will almost certainly take a conviction and receive the appropriate points on your driving record.
Hire an experienced traffic ticket attorney to get your ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction, such as "Illegal Parking." You will have to pay a fine (which will be higher than the original fine) plus court costs, but you won't have to appear in court. No points will be added to your driving record, and your insurance company will never know about the ticket. Most traffic ticket lawyers can give you a flat-fee price quote over the phone.

Plead not guilty and immediately hire an attorney in the county where the ticket occurrred. If only 11 over, you are likely to receive a favorable recommendation.
