Speeding Ticket

I got pulled over the other week, more like walked over since he was standing in the street waving me over. The officer said I was doing 51 in a 35. I explained politely that I was almost positive it was 45 through that stretch, which is true and I think he honestly believed I thought it was 45 through there. He comes back with the ticket and advises that he's cutting me some slack and is only writing me up for doing 40 in a 35.

I got the fine in the mail the other day and its $93.50! I'm 32 and this is the first speeding ticket I've ever had. Is $93.50 the going rate for a ticket that states I was going 5 mph over?

Don't matter. Pay it or you are screwed. Age and # of tickets are irrelevant.

Obviously you have sped many other times and gotten away with it. Pay the fine and move along...no big deal.

I know age and number of tickets are irrelevant to the cost of a fine, I was just pointing out that I have nothing to compare the cost of this ticket to tickets I've recieved in the past.

What would the fine have been if he stuck you with the 51mph? I know there's a scale to it but all cities / municipalities are different.

I guess I'm not sure. I'm looking at the ticket and it doesn't say. Is there a difference?

I haven't had a speeding ticket in almost 20 years so I have no idea but I've heard the fines for them are pretty steep these days. Here in Nebraska if you have no other tickets on your record you can take a driving class to get the ticket dismissed, you may want to check and see if you can do something like that. It will still cost you some $ but you won't have it on your record.

Cool. Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think 5 over goes on your record in Missouri, although I could be wrong.

Does that amount include court costs?

I got pulled over once on the 4th of July a couple of years ago by a FHP for going 88 in a 70mph zone. He let me off with a warning.
