You can represent yourself or hire an attorney and the result either way should be the same for a first time offender – you'll either get 9 over or a pjc. In either case it should not result in an increase to your insurance or add points to your drivers license. You'll simply have to pay costs of approximately $200. Feel free to follow up with me if you wish at attorneyaddison.com.
Davie County is very strict on high speed tickets. You should also be aware that this is a misdemeanor offense and if convicted of the charge as written you will lose your driving privilege for at least 30 days, not to mention substantially higher insurance premiums for the next 3 years. A lawyer may be able to assist you with somewhat of a reduction on this charge depending on your past driving history. Feel free to call us for a free consultation.
