I neither fought or paid...speeding 75 in a 60.
I took Defensive Driving, paid $119 in court fee and didn't get on my record and taking the class actually lowered my insurance rate (even though I already had a discount for drivers ed from high school).
Just don't go over 25 mph over the limit or you have to pay and can't even do DD. I've gotten 2 warnings though for going over 10 mph over the limit.
I hate when people tell me, "you drive so slow!" Well mother fucker, I went thru hell when I had to pay for DD class and court fees, a mother fucker ain't trying to do that all over again and more often than not when I speed, I always get more attention! So shut the fuck up!
