i didnt realize i was doing 51 in a 30, i thought it was a 40 zone. the cop is coming in the other direction and i see him turn around behind me, so i stupidly thought that he was coming after me for drinking and driving ( i was drinking juice from a solo cup ). so when he comes up to me he asks me if i know why i was pulled over , and i said that i thought he suspected i was drinking alcohol. so then he told me he got me at 51 and its obvious i didnt realize i was speeding. i live in new york and in going away to college in colorado in 4 days so does that mean i cant plead not guilty, because i wont be able to appear in court?
