Lenoir City, TN asked in Traffic Tickets for Tennessee

Q: I was going 108 in a 55mph zone. Got citation, but only charge I see is speeding. What're ALL the consequences?

Going 108 in a 55 but on my citation it ONLY says speeding. It doesn't say anything about reckless driving. Got it under statute 55-8-152 in TN code. Could I get community service? What're all the possibilities of punishment?

A: What are you complaining about? Depending on the Citation, either pay it (which is a Conviction with MVR points) or go to Court. You might get the speed reduced or some type of Diversion. Have money there to pay it. Be respectful.
