It is possible for you to go to court and plead not guilty and seek a plea deal. The fact of the matter is that the prosecutors generally prefer to make a deal and close a case than go to trial on these cases. The laser operator will have to show up to testify and all of it costs the city money. So, yes you have a good chance to get the speed reduced to 10 over the limit or so and you would have a much better chance at a reduction if you use a local attorney, because they know the prosecutors and know exactly what each prosecutor wants to hear to reduce these charges. So it is worth the $300-$400 to the attorney to avoid a record on your license which will cause insurance premiums to go way up for the next 3-5 years (in other words you will save in insurance rates paying for an attorney now to reduce this).
