I was travelling along Hull Street. My passenger who is severely handicapped needed a bathroom very urgently. The nearest bathroom was home, about 5 minutes away. I inadvertently increased my speed and was pulled over by a County officer. He very kindly ticketed me only for Ignoring a Highway sign (45 mph). What will be my options in court? (Excess speed was 72 mph).

Plead the defense of "URGENT NECESSITY" to the judge of the traffic court
involved and hope that his or her "quality of mercy" shall not not
be overly strained (to paraphrase the Bard) in meting out the appropriate measure of justice in your case.
