okay, i was on my way to visit family with my mom and daughter in the car, when all of a sudden i saw blue lights. so of course i pull over, and he pulls over behind me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
he says i was speeding 47 in a 35<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> i really thought (and still do) that the speed was 45 because 10 feet ahead from where he clocked me was a sign in the other direction that was 55mph. according to the ticket, he pulled me on the same road he clocked me.<br><br>
anyway, do any of you have experience in virginia with tickets??<br><br>
the phone number on my ticket said that they don't do prayer for judgements; i have 2 options: 1.pay the fine and get license and insurance points or 2.show up to court and ask the judge to (release ?) me or something like that where i could attend a traffic school at home and the ticket would be thrown out.<br><br>
any help or advice?? i've never gotten a ticket before

Can you check online to see if you can appeal that way and maybe send in a photo of the speed limit sign noting 55?<br><br>
I've never gotten a speeding ticket in Virgina, but honestly unless the fine is really huge, I would just pay it. It wouldn't be worth the time to me to go to court and then maybe have to go to traffic school.

i don't really mind paying the fine, but my insurance will go up for the next 3 years!!! so if i could just pay for traffic court ($50), the even with the day off work i'd come out to the good. the only think i can do online is pay
