What is the name of your state? Maryland.
Actually, my driver's license is issued in Maryland, but the ticket I got on March 2nd was on I95 in North Carolina. I was cited for speeding going 82 in a 65 mph zone(G.S. 20-141(J1)). I didn't notice that there is a speed limit change on the road, it was very dark. The officer told me that the speed limit changed from 70 to 65 mph about 10 miles before I was pulled over. At the time I got pulled over, I was following a pick-up truck, and didn't pay much attention on the odometer.
My record is very clear and it' my first ticket ever. I need help on following questions:
1. How serious is it? I mean how much the fine is and how many points I will receive due to this.
2. Do I have any chance to have my ticket reduced (both fine and points)?
3. Normally, how much is the cost to hire an attorney on this kind of case?
Thanks in advance.
