I have a contested court hearing on 2nd nov. The hearing date doesnt say anything about how I can request the citing officers statement. Please tell me how can I request this information. I got my ticket in seattle for driving at 51 mph (atleast that is what my citing officer said) on 35 mph street. However my ticket is for driving at 40+ mph on 35 mph street. This is my first ticket and I dont have much idea about fighting it. Please tell me I have any hope of fighting this or it is better to just pay it.
Also if I change the hearing to mitigation hearing, is there any chance of getting this ticket off my driving record.
Thanks a lot for your help,
