Hello. My name is ***** *****

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, once a person pleads guilty to a traffic citation and pays the fine, generally, it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible (absent some extraordinary circumstances) to set aside such guilty please and to be able to contest the speeding citation.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and good luck!
