My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: New York
I have just received a speeding ticket for 50MPH in 35MPH zone near School House RD on Route 17 in Tuxedo, NY. This is my first speed ticket ever in my life time with over 8 or 9 years of clean driving record. I remember the road has signs of 45MPH and 55MPH speed limit and I didn't notice there is 35MPH zone. I was driving around 40-45MPH in average but there are uphills and downhills where I might exceeded the speed limit. The officer who pulled me over said he clocked me by radar at 58 but he was very nice enough gave me a ticket for 50MPH in 35MPH zone. Btw, the code I believe is 1180D.
1. Should I plead of guilty or not guilty? Is there anything I can do? Seriously, I don't mind with the fine but I really hate to see any points going to my record. Please kindly advise any possible actions I can take.
2. If I plead of not guilty, should I request for a supporting deposition? The ticket stated that "Speeding (Gen 101)" were issue, but I have no clue what this is.
Much appreciated for all your advices and suggestions.
