Crofton, MD asked in Traffic Tickets for Maryland

Q: I received a speeding ticket out of state Section 3361 Driving At Safe Speed. Should I file guilty or not guilty? Thanks

Its for going 79 in a 55 zone in Pennsylvania. I live in Maryland however. I'm unclear on the difference between on pleading guilty or not guilty and whether it would be worth it to fight the ticket in court.

Also, do you know if any points are assessed for this violation?

A: Points did not transfer from Pennsylvania to Maryland for a speeding violation, although a conviction in Pennsylvania can appear on your Maryland driving record. You'd be best to confer with a Pennsylvania attorney to determine whether the expense and effort are worth fighting a ticket, depending on the specific facts and circumstances concerning your citation.
