Asked in Traffic Tickets for Florida

Q: I have gotten a ticket of reckless driving.

No boxes are checked for anything. Only the description says "speeding excess of 120mph and 11 illegal lane changes"

I asked the cop to elaborate on the illegal lane changes and he wouldn't. And I also believe the speed he told me was higher than what I was doing. But it's his word.

He was following another car making way more aggressive cuts with no space. But I don't do that. I think it's because I have a nicer car I stood out more to him. So he followed me for a while. Sometimes he was going over 80. The road was i4 so speed limit was 70 during the whole situation.

He said if I show up to court it'll most likely be reduced. What should I do when I show up?
