RE: Speeding Ticket: Any hope?

Here in Missouri (and in Kansas as I recently found out the hard way)
:-(  you can take your ticket to a lawyer and have them get the ticket
reduced to a non-moving violation.  Highly recommend it if this is
possible in MA.  For example, I got a ticket in Kansas for 86 in a 70
which was a $67 fine, plus who knows how much would have been added to
my insurance premium.  Paid the Traffic Law Center $90, and they got it
reduced to a non-moving violation, with the fine staying $67.  I was
quite pleased, to say the least.
I have done the same in Missouri, but they usually jack up the fine to
do this.  Good luck.

I just got a ticket in my 1 week old A4Q, bummer! 50 in a 35 mph zone;
and a raise in insurance. On the ticket, the boxes RADAR and ESTIMATED
checked off. I believe he was driving towards me as he clocked me which
makes me believe he estimated his own speed and subtracted it from the
reading. My crappy BEL radar detector sounded only as I was passing

I live in MASS. Is there any hope of winning a hearing? Does anyone have
tips on getting off of this one?

Thanks in advance. Time to call up Mr. Valentine.
