I have been stopped numerous times and have been lucky in never being ticketed. I always apologise to the officer and never argue. So far so good , but my wife was stopped for 75 in a 55 recently. We got an attorney to write to the prosecutor on her behalf, and got it reduced to "failure to obey a traffic signal".
Cost: Fine $100, Attorney $300.
2 points and no insurance report.
I think its worth this route if your insurance will take a hit. You might try an attorney in the town you were nailed in, they usually know the run of things there.
(BTW I am not an attorney).
