I got my first speeding ticket yesterday. I was on a rural highway and I was on an open stretch of road following a curve and a car was coming towards me (The only car for a mile). I didnt realize it was a cop at first but he clocked me at 82 in a 55 zone. So I was clocked at 27 over. I feel terrible because I seldom drive that fast. I now have a mandatory court appearance on August 2nd as well as a $230 fine. I live in Wisconsin, does anyone know if a speeding ticket has to be signed by the officer? Is anyone familar with mandatory court dates for speeding offenses because I can find little information on them. I was just lucky I was not going any faster because 30 over is considered reckless driving. Any advice besides to slow down?
