You can hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get your ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point infraction that won't cause points to be added to your driving record, and it won't cause your car insurance rates to increase. You won't have to appear in court if you hire an attorney to represent you.
26 miles over the limit is pretty high, and is not a minor traffic violation, so you might be required to attend traffic school before your attorney can convince the Prosecutor to amend the ticket. The outcome depends on which court your case is being prosecuted in (every county is different regarding how lenient or strict the judge and prosecutor are), how bad your driving record is, your age, what time of day it was when you got pulled over, and the location.
Most experienced speeding ticket attorneys will give you a free consultation over the phone with a flat fee price quote, and they can also give you an estimate of the fine & court costs you will have to pay.
