What is the procedure for paying the fine? Is there a form for waiving a court apppearance and mailing in the fine? If so, the form may say words to the effect of "I don't contest this ticket, agree that I committed the violation and that a finding or judgement of conviction may be entered against me ...".
You might consider not signing the form but just paying the fine.
The point is this: if you are concerned that this ticket might threaten your CDL if it is reported to the state of issue, you might consider paying the fine without admitting that you did anything wrong.
Under what circumstances the State of Louisiana might or might not report a speeding ticket to your state of issue is very difficullt if not impossible to research, so I am suggesting a way to "work around" the problem.
