Hi everyone, I was recently driving from NJ to school in SC and was ticketed for going 83 in a 70 in Emporia. I was trying to pass a line of trucks I couldn't see around and the sheriff was on the left shoulder.

This is my first violation ever (not evening parking tickets) and I know that this carries stiff penalties and I am a bit terrified. What should I do?

Also, does anyone know how VA traffic penalties affect out of state drivers?

Not sure about out of state drivers but if your record is clean, you should be able to get reduction or dismissal by attending Driving school. I had an 83/55 and clean record and went to school for reduction to "speeding" 74 in 55. Don't be too "terrified" but if you are that worried...hire a lawyer although I don't think you'll need one in this case.
