Since any speeding ticket for going over 30 mph over the limit requires a court appearance and carries the potential for fines of at least $400 and the imposition of 3 or 4 points, it is strongly advised that you appear with counsel to negotiate a plea or present a defense in the hope of having the ticket dismissed.
