    Default Two Speeding Tickets Within 3 Months

    My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: Illinois

    I will start with some background information.

    I am currently 30+ and have already received 1 speeding violation 3 months back with "No court appearance required". This speeding ticket was in Illinois for 55 in 35 mph.This is my first speeding violation, payed the fine and attended a Driving Safety School to get this violation of my records.

    Now, I got the second speeding ticket for 50 in a 30 mph (within 3 Months)

    I got the second ticket while driving out of my apartment, on the drive which is around 1 mile to join the Illionis Route . The drive is one lane each way and this has couple of curves .

    Knowing this, I am sure I wouldn't have been on 50 mph.
    However, I received this second ticket with a Individual Bond and marked "No court appearance required" . And it shows incident method - "RADAR" ..

    Since it is less than 12 months before I took the Driving Safety School , I am not eligible for the same and Court Supervision.

    I was hoping to show up to court and the question I have is that if the judge overturn the cops decision to just give me a normal ticket? If that's the case i'd rather not take that risk by going to court.

    Also, what is my best recourse for attempting to refute these charges!?

    Is there a provision to avoid this being reported ... Or should I just pay the fine ....

    Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

    I also really need to decide in next couple of days ..

    "I am sure that I wouldn't have been on 50 mph" is not a defense. Might was well pay the fine if that's all you have.

    A suggestion: leave 10 minutes earlier and you can drive the speed limit or under.

    I thought that was one of the questions you asked in your first post... And it sounds to me that Speedy's answer was all inclusive especially of your "I am sure that I wouldn't have been on 50 mph" as not being a defense.

    Your speed was measured with RADAR and you were allegedly 20mph over the limit; that's a huge margin to try and beat!
