So you were speeding, got caught, and want to fight the ticket? You deserved it, so pay for it and move on.
Edit: Find out what it'll do to your license in terms of points. If it's significant enough then take a defensive driving course or something like that.
ALWAYS fight the ticket if you have an hour or two to spare. I've had multiple speeding tickets, all which I was clearly guilty of, dismissed because of discovery violations. Usually the violations weren't even the officer's fault (city attorneys are lazy bastards).
My last case involved an officer who was a 12-year vet of his PD. He presented his side of the case EXTREMELY well, and was assured a victory had I not filed for discovery. The judge said that since my case was a clear cut discovery violation, even though the officer's testimony was concrete, he'd have to throw the ticket out.
What's discovery? Whether their speed gun was calibrated recently?
