I had my court date today for my ticket I got going 19 over a few months ago. My main concern was keeping it away from my insurance.
I got zero points on my license (a relief), and it's not going to the insurance company (also a relief)..... but I have a $150 fine and 20 hours of community service. Then I have to memorize this quote (and recite it in front of everyone in the court room when I go back in like a month), and write a 500 word essay on "choices", derived from the quote. Here is a scan pic
of the essay assignment the judge gave me.
I guess I got out all right, but I've never heard of a judge assigning homework for a speeding ticket before....
