So how would you present your case to a judge for going 20mph over the speed limit? Or would you just plead guilty? Will consider both sarcastic and serious suggestions.

My case:
There wasn't a 55mph sign posted visible before or after I was pulled over.
I was accelerating to get up a steep hill.
I've had my abbs for almost 6 years now.

I took criminal justice classes in my state but i'm not really familiar with Georgia's state law but from a general stand point judges are hard to persuade and 95% of the time the judge will side with the police officer. It's an position of authority and credibility issue but your best bet is to take evidence and lawyer up. Its a pain in the ass process but its better than pleading guilty or trying to present the case your self.

Remember to kiss ass and be respectful to the judge.

I wouldn't. I would find it more entertaining to stir civil disobedience.

You do not make examples, you make excuses; you do not solve problems, you shift problems; you do not stand behind your statements, you stand behind your stasis.

I don't think there are any roads in the UK were 75mph is within the speed limit and I can't see it being much different in the US.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. I don't live in Georgia, but around here it's common knowledge that the highest speed limit is 65mph (on the highway). I don't see an excuse that would actually get you out of any trouble, unless you have higher speed limits around your area. I'd just take the slap on the wrist and pay the fine.

Asserting the unfairness of a judge's ability to judge by judging the judge as not accepting their own humanity as readily as yourself? How? I guess ultimately I just imagine you addressing the judge like that and the real-world response to your fantasy. The harsh juxtaposition between the two is amusing. Like the expectation/reality pictures littering my facebook feed every day.

Honestly, I am never a conformist unto those who only comform to their degenerate whims. I will die a rebellious and genuine life before I succumb to this senseless bidding. I'd rather live a shameful life than a wasteful lives. However, my shame is in their eyes only, which doesn't matter, for they cannot see themselves.

Whatever you do, DO NOT try to come off as sarcastic in court if you're legitimately trying to plead your case. Judges hate that shit.

Also, don't try pleading guilty, or you'll be taken as guilty. It's as simple as that. Don't expect the judge to have any remorse.

Good luck. I got a speeding ticket for not speeding around Fullerton, CA. Good ole highway Popo.

Anyway, those guys get paid overtime for showing up to fuck you over in court. Basically it becomes your word against the officers and the officer has way more credibility going into the courtroom (unfair), so the judge usually just throws the book at people.

When I got my speeding ticket for not speeding, I told the judge, "Your honor, the reason I'm contesting the citation this officer had given me was because I was merely cruising that morning because I was running a little early, I wasn't following to closely or weaving in and out of traffic, I was just cruising at traffics speed, and even if I did want to reach the speed limit on the citation I'd have to be pretty ambitious as opposed to just idly cruising."

The judge just kind of smiled and said, "Yeah well you'll get plenty of speeding ticket in your life don't think too much of it. Tell you what, I'll let you change your plee to guilty and I'll lower the fine."

"I would Your Honor but then I'd be a liar."

I got fucked by the entire system two times sideways, good thing it was just a speeding ticket. But seriously, everything you say can easily be negated by the officer going, "nuhuh". So basically the best way to beat a speeding ticket is if the officer doesn't show up. Which is more common if they are a city cop.

Best of luck.

The worst that could happen to you is you get a fine, and a point on your license (If you don't have any other offences).
