Only you can decide if it is important enough, worth enough or valid enough for you to contest the ticket. In todays world, it will most likely find it's way to your states' record if you do nothing though.

An alternative to going back there to contest it personally, is to hire a local attorney there. Traffic ticket defense is normally fairly inexpensive. They may well be able to beat the charge for any number of reasons, or make an arrangement with the court, (like doing an on line PC program from anywhere, which is available many places, or get it reduced to a non moving violation) that, especially with your good record, will essentially dismiss the case.

When does a speeding ticket go on your record?

A moving violation, including a speeding ticket, goes on your record when you either admit guilt or are found guilty by the court. Paying the fine is considered an admission of guilt and it goes on your record when paid. If you neither pay the fine or contest the ticket by the date shown on the ticket you are presumed guilty and it goes on your record at that time. If you contest the ticket and prevail it will never go on your record. If you contest the ticket and lose it goes on your record at that time.

Will 'no contest' pleas for speeding be reported to your insurance company?

"Will 'no contest' pleas for speeding be reported to your insurance company?" No contest or Nolo Contendere is basically the same a a guilty plea and is treated exactly the same for drivers license and auto insurance points. In most states the only difference is that the plea cannot be used against you in a civil suit. In Georgia you can use this plea once every five years and no drivers license points will be assessed but insurance points will. You would need to check the laws in your state but normally this in of no use in a speeding ticket case. lwpat
