Hi, So, I received a speeding ticket. I am having a hard time not fighting the ticket. It's more a mental battle than anything else. I certainly was speeding, however, not going as fast as the Officer stated I was. I was clocked as 67 in a 30, that's pretty reckless in my opinion. I will say, the Officer was extremely nice and very respectful. When he told me how fast I was going, I told him I felt that was difficult to do from starting point (red light) to where he was (highway exit). He had his motorcycle parked and he was standing near the street with a radar gun. I honestly did say to the officer, "Sir, are you sure? I can't believe my car can go that fast... I was speeding but it didn't feel like I was going 67" and he said he would show me the Radar. He showed it to me but I didn't see anything (the sun was in my eyes) so I politely asked to see it again and put on my sunglasses. He showed it to me again, and I seriously didn't see any number, however, at this point I was not going to ask again because I did not want him to think I was being a smart ass. I thanked him for showing it to me, and then said again I didn't think I was going that fast. He was respectful, and nice. Never said anything rude. That's where it's tough for me. I was speeding, yes I was I won't lie. However, I did the math and in order for my car to reach that speed in the distance allotted I would have to have the sport version of my vehicle, which I do not. This all happened because some asshole tailgated me for an entire 2 miles and when we go to the red light, he immediately pulled up to my right and I thought, "No way I'm going to let this dick pass me" and bam... He ended up going faster than me, and beat me anyway so....... Not only did I lose to someone who looked homeless, I ended up with the ticket. What's the possibility that the Officer tagged his car and pulled me over? Not saying he did it on purpose, I'm talking accidental. I want to fight the ticket not because I don't want to pay the $375 but because of the insurance spike, and points on my license and the fact that I'm going to give my husband a stroke with my bullshit!! I know, I know.. "Don't speed" and I get it, you're right. It was heat of the moment and I didn't want a panhandler look alike leaving me in his dust. Should I attempt to just be honest and fight the ticket? Or just deal with the consequences of my pride (ha!). What are my chances here?
