The ticket was for doing 41 in a 30 mph school zone. I had no idea I was in a school zone (wasn't familiar with the area) and the regular speed limit was 40, so I had no idea that I was "speeding". Traffic in the area at the time was pretty heavy, which played a part in me not seeing the school zone warning. I was focused on staying safe and not hitting anybody, and yet I got a ticket...how ironic. Of course, the police officer was kind of a jerk and didn't really seem to care. There is a court date on the ticket. My main concern is keeping points off of my license and my insurance from going up. I should mention that this is my first speeding ticket. I've never been to court before so I'm not sure how it works. I just want to know the best route to take in this case.
