Any traffic lawyers out there?

Hey guys,
Got pulled over for speeding going west bound on I-88, clocked me at 85 mph in a 55 mph zone in my car (ticket #1). The officer told me I didn't have to go to court and said if it was more than 85 it would be a misdemeanor. He also gave me two other tickets for no front license plate (ticket #2) and having a clear plastic cover over the rear license plate (ticket #3) For the court date/time he wrote "to be set" and said that I would get something in the mail.

The letter came and says that I must go to court. I called the court clerk and she says that because it was three tickets all at once I must show up at the date and time specified. After this, i quickly removed the clear plastic cover and ordered a front license plate mount. I have had several speeding tickets in the past:

Drag racing in 1998 (successfully completed supervision with a lawyer)
speeding in 2007 (successfully completed supervision)
speeding in 2011 (convicted, on my record)

Is this case lawyer worthy?

No. Talk to prosecuting attorney, tell him you removed your gay ass plastic cover, and that you have your front plate on now. He will agree to supervision on the speeding ticket with your good driving record and throw out the other tickets with just court costs. Why? Because it's all about money. If he doesn't agree to that you might want to get a lawyer at that point and ask for a continuance, but most likely that scenario will play out. They want the most amount of money for the least amount of work and time.

Solid advice ..... But you have to talk to the prosecutor before your case is called.

Thanks for the advice folks. I'll talk to the prosecutor, if he doesn't give me supervision, i'll ask for a continuance. At that point i'll hit you up Mike.
