Ok, here's the deal. I went to Edmond (town about an hour and a half from my hometown) tonight (monday) to see a friend of mine. I stayed up there until about 1:30 and then I started the drive back home. Now, the majority of this drive is nothing but long, straight, flat roads that are relatively empty after about midnight. There was a particular spot that was VERY empty--I was the only car for about 2 miles (except the Highway Patrolman in the median...). Anyways, I got bored on one of the excessive straightaways. Keep in mind here that there were no cars anywhere around, so I don't want to hear the tripe about "endangering others" with my speeding. The moral of the story--- I was speeding. What the officer clocked me at, however, was impossible. My truck is governed to 95 mph, and I was showing exactly 90--the fellow wrote me for 98 in a 70. The tires are the original sized tires that came on the truck, so there is no way that incorrect tire size can cause that much of a difference. Anyways, now onto the rest... The fine is $273. That's not my worry. The possibility of 3 points going onto my driving record for my FIRST OFFENSE is my worry. The officer said that the possibility of anything over 20 mph getting dropped or even reduced is slim to none. I've already checked the ticket for mistakes--the only mistake he made is that he didn't put the endorsement for my corrective lenses on the ticket. What in the world can I do (besides a defensive driving class, which I will probably take) to keep these points from getting onto my record?
