I'm 19 years old and starting college in a few weeks. I was cited for driving 48 in a 25 residential zone on 7/14/14.
My school is on top of a mountain, and the road down is sloped. I was coasting down the road and my car picked up speed. The officer was at the bottom of the hill just a few feet beyond a roadside speedometer.
I recognize I should have applied the breaks to slow down sooner than I did. However, I was wondering if there was anything I should/could do to lesson the affect of this ticket on my wallet & possible point on my record. I cannot see the fine amount, eligibility for driving school, etc. yet.
I would be happy if I could just just take driving school and pay the fine. From my understanding, if you are over 20 MPH over the speed you cannot. Is that true?- I was cited for 22350 infraction. - Ticket says he used laser to identity speed. - Traffic conditions on ticket say medium. - Ticket was during the day (just before 1PM).
