First you say it happened in 10 years and then you say 11 so you're probably counting from conviction date but you need to count from violations dates.

If your car was on, it is considered driving for a DWI so no defense exists for that. However another defense may exist for the machine and the physical tests you were given.

Police have 30 days to mail you the charges for a speeding ticket and if they take longer then the case will get dismissed based on statute limitations grounds. If cop pulled you over in another town then you can make motion to transfer the case to the other town.
