Got my first speeding ticket in NC the other day. When I lived in NY for doing a 82 in a 65 I would have not even thought of getting a lawer. Apparently the law firms of this state thing differently, I got a stack of letters in the mail today from half the law firms in Raleigh. I've never recieved a single one when I was in NY. I still have my NY drivers license and have to get it changed soon anyway, so we will see how much of a fine I get and if I decide to plead not guilty or not.
