I got a ticket now what?

First ever ticket on my motorcycle, going 91 in a 65 on I-35 heading towards Waco from Temple, it was around midnight. Haven't gotten 1 in like 3 years and can't remeber if I can take defensive driving yet or not. Are there any other options to not pay the $297...? thanks.

, that cop was an extra douche if he couldnt knock 1 mph off to let you take defensive driving.

Seriously don't pay tickets, pay a lawyer. In the end it might cost less and it might cost more but chances are it won't go on your driving record. Most of the time the ticket will get dropped cause they drag it out and the cops eventually won't show up or you will get deferred(for an extra fee) so as long as you don't get another ticket in like 90 days then it won't go on your record.

Agreed with SP, I got 17 tickets in 1 year and didnt have to pay a single one of them, and only had DD 1 time, they all were cleared by a lawyer, Pre Paid Legal FTW
