Speed limit typically is 45. There were other cars around me going both ways on a 4 lane rd. Ticket is computerized but marked as heading southbound when I was going northbound. I wasn't driving the speed he said and the ticket clearly has marked that it's a wavible offense but he said it wasn't when he handed me the ticket.

A: Get a lawyer to go to court with you. Perhaps there are enough problems with the ticket to get it reduced, or even dismissed. A simple mistake like north or south isn't going to kill it.
