Just looking for some advice or maybe someone that had a worse encounter.
Anyway my story. I drive alot and hadn't had a speeding ticket in about 7 years. I was driving to TN for a couple of jobs and was clocked going 100 in a 70 in Turner County Georgia.
I do speed, but normally set cruise control at 79 and go. I deal with left lane drivers often, but this was a casde of having someone speed change for 15 miles and I was trying to pass. They sped up (alot) I was determined to get by.
Anyway, I didnt think I was going 100, but I dont dispute it. I countacted the county and they offered me a reduced plea of 90/70 and pay the fine of $1134.00. If I decide to fight it in court they say I will pay the full 100/70 fine which I have no idea what it is?
Georgia also has a super speeder (additional $200) that is not part of fine and will be tacked on after the fact.
I was advised to call Ticket Clinic and get an attorney, but this seems like it is a county that prosecutes really, really hard and the Ticket Clinic lawyer is the prosecuter in that county. It seems there are no attorneys that work in that county becuase of how seriously they prosecute the cases.
I would man up and pay fine, but it really seems like some redneck county BS that is nowhere in line with the norm.
