For a speed of 81 in a 65 zone, you were doing 16 miles over the speed limit. I remember being told by my lawyer back when I had my ticket, that 15 miles over the limit was a "cutoff point" for many states - more than 15 miles over, and if you plead guilty or no contest, they will yank your licence

Hmm.. I know that in WI, 20+ is "excessive" and that's when they really start getting to you.

The ticket was also 4 points. A friend of mine just went to court for a ticket, and since it was her first offense they took all of the points off and lowered the ticket also.
