Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR as your previous contributor had to leave.
First of all, you need to realize traffic offenses are money makers for the municipalities. So the prosecutors are more willing to negotiate plea agreements than they are interested in going to trial. So, the first thing you need to do is plead not guilty and ask for a conference with the prosecutor. You would argue that the officer "paced you" but that there is no proof that the speedometer on his car was accurate. Also, even if his speedometer is certified calibrated, there are many factors affecting accuracy, such as tire tread, tire size, inflation of the tires, road surface and road conditions, whether or not the road was level. So you need to argue that his speedometer was not the accurate measure of your speed and also argue that you believed you were going no more than 5 miles over the limit because that was what your speedometer said and your speedometer was no less accurate than what the officer is claiming his speedometer said and absent any actually certified speed detection measurement you dispute the officer's claims.
That is how you argue a pace ticket, the fact the officer did not have a properly calibrated and certified speed detection device and it was just a guess by the officer.
Most times, the prosecutor will offer you a reduction or a deferred adjudication, which is where you pay the fine
but if you get no more tickets in 6 months they will dismiss this one and nothing will be reported to DMV so nothing goes on your license.
