Probably, a pretty good chance to escape with just a speeding

infraction rather than a conviction for a criminal misdemeanor offense (reckless driving) if you have no such prior convictions for reckless driving

or other serious speeding or driving infractions.

Go early for your scheduled hearing and see the prosecutor assigned to

your case to discuss it before court commences.
