Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm very sorry to hear about your diagnosis.

You have the ability to go in to court and ask that they reduce the fine based on you having a reasonable explanation for speeding. They will usually allow you to pay a lesser amount, or they might let you do community service instead of paying anything. It is possible that a sympathetic district attorney will ask the judge to dismiss the charge or reduce it to a non-moving violation. That requires going to court on the date on the ticket and making the request. If you plead not guilty and go to trial, the judge isn't allowed to consider why you were speeding, because intent isn't one of the required elements. But I hope you can negotiate a resolution.

If you have any questions or concerns about what I've written, please reply so that I may address them. If I did not address the specific thing that you wanted to know, it may not have come across clearly to me, so please restate that question. It's important to me that you are 100% satisfied with the service I provide. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so that I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
