In some states you can end up paying more money if you are found guilty. Nowadays, unless you have witnesses and good evidence, a police officer is always right. If they say you were speeding, then you were speeding (according to the judge). You could plead guilty and ask that it be reduced or taken off your record if you can stay clean for 90 days, some states will allow deals like that. If you were honestly not guilty, then plead your case and see what happens.

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.
