89 km speed in 60 km/hr zone and got speeding ticket

Hi,
This forum is very useful and I am seeking some help.

I have got speeding ticket. Officer stopped me and said you are at 102 km speed in 60 KM/hr zone. I told him that I was coming from court hearing and was under frustration plus I was late for meeting at my work place. So I might not see speed limit otherwise I always follow speed limit (I have docs showing court hearing and my job meeting). He gave me ticket for 89 km/hr and $138 fine. How much demerit points I will get and what are the options for me? can I request prosecutor myself to give plea deal and waive demerit points or go for trial or just pay ticket? what will be impact on my insurance?

Appreciate your help

Thanks

- Your job meeting is irrelevant.
- It's 3 demerit points.
- Your options are on the back of your ticket.
- Yes, you can do it yourself.
- No, they can't wave points. They have nothing to do with the points. They can offer you a speed reduction. If that speed is 16 or more, it's still 3 points. If it's less, then it's zero points.
- Your insurance treats practically any speed 49 or less the same, whether it's 5km over or 20.

Thanks for reply.
If I go myself, can prosecutor waive full ticket?
Can paralegal help waive ticket?

You’re were already given a break at roadside. A prosecutor isn’t simply going to waive the entire ticket for you or a paralegal. If you decide to fight it, they will also likely amend it back to the original speed of 102 km/h.
You can always try get get a bit more of a break, that’s entirely up to them though.
