I'm a 19 year old girl, I've been driving for 3 years and this is my first ticket/violation. I thought I was in a 45 going 50, but was really going 60 and in a 35 for a brief stretch, which was when the cop happened to be there. Obviously I will pay better attention in the future!

This happened in Greensboro. The ticket says reckless driving and a mandatory court date in November. I know I should get a lawyer, but what's the best way to go about that? What are my options? I'm worried about losing/getting a suspension on my license, because I need it for my job, so I would probably lose my job if that happened. How likely is that? Will this make my insurance go up? Does anyone have experience with this offense/something similar?

Sorry for all the questions, just wanting to know what to expect!!

Thanks

You will soon be inundated with letters from lawyers offering their assistance. Pick out 2 or 3 and call them to ask how they would handle it, what their fees are, etc. Pick the one you are most comfortable with. He'll probably recommend you take a defensive driving course in advance of your court date.
