A: If the question is "can I be cited", the answer is yes. The question is whether they can prove it in court. If you do receive a citation, make sure you hire an experienced lawyer as you could lose your license if you are cited for going 31mph or more over the limit, plus you will get points. Good luck!

A: The owner is responsible for the drivers. I'm not sure about taking the plate and registration, as it's a speeding offense, but that's why you do need an attorney.
