My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: Washington
So i was traveling up to school and my car was packed, i was seriously 5 minutes away from my university, and he pulls me over in my 87 VW Golf.
He says he clocked me going 70 in a 60. I thought the limit was 65. He had pity on me, and gave me 65 in a 60. I realized that the tires i have on my car are a bit bigger in diameter and are throwing my speedo off. So my speedo was reading about 60, but i was really doing about 70. he was in the oncoming lane when he clocked me. This is my first ticket, im 20, driving since 16. there is no mention of traffic school like in CA where you can not have it go on your record. the ticket is for $90, which is not bad, but is there anything i can do? Is the tire size and excuse? i would atleast like this not to go on my record if i can, or get out of it maybe on the speedo problem. Thanks a lot!
