I got a speeding ticket for 90 in a 70 in mocksville, nc. What are my best options? I’m 37yo and have not had a citation in over 3 years. Also may i add that another person was pulled over and ticketed by the same officer at the same time i was. I found it rather odd.
IMHO that’s pretty fast.
I know here where I am (Raleigh) the DA’s won’t do much with it other than to MAYBE knock it down to C&R.
With just a C&R on your record in the past 3 years, no license suspension (but if you were to plead to 90/70, definitely suspension).
Unfortunately, even with the C&R you will still see a sizable insurance hit.
What you want -ideally- is to change the charge to Improper equipment, which is not even a moving violation, but that speed may be too high to do it.
If you get a lawyer it might really be worth it since he/she will know what to do and can very likely save you from having to go to court multiple times.
OTOH, if you really really want to handle it yourself, go in and see what the DA’s willing to offer and then say you want to “consult a lawyer” (and then do so!).
