The other thing is that is was not a posted work zone, which in effect, doubled the fine (and I think the points). Any good statements I can utilize in my defense? Any suggestions are welcome.
Traffic court doesnt work that way,
Just pay the ticket....
Any decent traffic court lawyer will cost you at the very least 4 to 5 times whatever the fine is and the judge will either laugh at you or rip you to shreds without one, on top of that you'll probably have to miss work, pay court costs, and it's highly likely that you'll lose even with a good lawyer.
the only time it's worth it to go through that nightmare is if you're going to plea bargain (ie: get a 4pt ticket reduced to 2pts which in this case is useless since you're only going to get 2pts anyway) or if you're in danger of getting your license suspended (in which case you better have a lawyer to help you plea bargain).
