I was driving in upsate NY in the middle of nowhere trying to make a redeye in NYC and I hadn't seen a car for 100 miles. Literally not one car. I'm cruising at around 75 in a 65 trying to make good time back to the city. Apparently it dropped down to 55 and a state trooper picked me off and claimed I was doing 80 in the 55. I say yes sir and no sir and play dumb. I've never had a moving violation but he doesn't let me go. I suppose he shouldn't have. A few questions: Should I plead not guilty and string it out? How much with this ticket likely cost? The DMV says 6 points, but I'm wondering how much cash. Will it affect my insurance even though it's my first ticket? Should I just pay it?
