Dayum......if the ticket is indeed written for 15 over she can expect a reckless ticket 6points probably $200 plus. Hopefully it is her first ticket in some time.

x2 15 + is reckless driving, you should be asking for the name of a good lawyer to get out of the ticket. You don't want that on a driving record!

Unless they changed the law. 15 over is careless driving 4 points on the license. Driver review board in Jackson will be seeing her. You can see at least 200 dollar fine, extension to her probationary driving period, your insurance may consider her a high risk driver.

This information is from when I got a similar ticket. That was 13-14 years ago though.

In 2006, the fine was $120.00 and 2 points if she was on a limited access highway.

i think you michiganders need to not complain about your speeding tickets.

my brother got one about a year ago back home in ct, 12 over, 320 bucks... our tickets are extremely higher than yours.

Don't give 'em any ideas, they might actually start enforcing the speed limit.

I talked my way out of a 105 in a 55 once, so I don't push my luck any more then I have to. my kid just moved to Grass lake and she works in Chelsea. she was headed to work when she saw the cop coming towards her. she slowed down but obviously not enough soon enough. its her first ticket ever so I hope they don't go to hard on her.
