I got a speeding ticket 55 in a 35 and have not had anything in the past 4 years. Even though it is 20 miles over the speed limit, am I eligible for a prayer for Judgement?
State/Country relating to Question: North Carolina
Normally you would be but that is at the complete discretion of the prosecutor and the judge. I would show for court or retain an attorney and first try for a nine over no point and no insurance increase ticket and try to save the PFJ. If they will not reduce, then use the prayer for judgment. Good luck. http://www.speedingticketcentral.com/North-Carolina-speeding-ticket.html
