. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway

Hello. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway in the Town on Evans, Erie County. Cop pulls me over and says I was going 81 (limit: 65) mph. Also said the car right in front of me was going 77. I would have hit that car if I was going 81. Speeding? Yes. 81? No. Either way, speeding. I'm concerned with the 'Plea of Guilty' wording on the citation, 'liable to a penalty, but in addition your license to drive a motor vehicle and your certificate of registration, if any, are subject to suspension and revocation...' If I plead guilty, will I receive only a fine as issued by a judge (the cop says so and sarcastically asked if I'd like him to write me a speeding ticket instead when I didn't understand the UTT) or am I opening myself up to points, suspension and revocation? Appears to be the evolution of the photo radar, i.e. cash grab. I don't want to run afoul, but am I setting myself up to incur more than a mere fine? Thank you for your opinion. Sincerely, ***** ***** Love NY

Gave me a breathalyzer and then searched my car because he smelled marihuana.1. Didn't I have the right of way with no need to stop?2. Is this a cause for dismissing the whole incident?
