The best you can do is get it reduced provided you have a good driving
record.  Don't waste your time going to court.  Call the prosecutor who
is sometimes a police officer.  Tell him/her that you'd like to save the
town the inconvenience of having one of their "finest" tied up in court
and was wondering if you could settle for a lesser amount.  Works for me
here in southern NH where I seem to get a ticket once every 3 yrs for
not paying attention to the known speed traps.  Then of course you can
take your chance and hope the officer fails to show up in court :-)

then asks how fast I am going.  I admit nothing and he claims I was

passed you, but I held my tongue.  He came back with an 8 point, yes 8
point, ticket that costs $300.  Tells me he got me with Genesis moving
