How much was the ticket for..
For example, let's say it's 15 mph over the speed limit.
You can go to court, plead not guilty, and there's a 99% chance the prosecutor will offer you a reduction.. like perhaps 9 mph over instead of 15.
I forget all the specific rules, but there are certain speed increments that impact your insurance more than others.. Example, 20 mph over is obviously worse than 5 mph over.
If you have the time, go ahead in, plead not guilty and see if the prosecutor offers you a reduction.
The odds of you getting the ticket totally dismissed is very low without more evidence.. The fact that the cop was a moron isn't going to help you get the ticket dismissed. It has to be something blantant, like you asked to see the reading on the radar gun and he refused.
Just hope the judge isn't a part time umpire
BTW, I am not an expert, I just got a lot of speeding tickets when I was younger.
