There is likely not a single driver in Virginia or across the country who has not at some point driven faster than the posted speed limit. Unfortunately, getting a ticket for such an action can ultimately have serious professional and financial consequences. While some people may believe that they have no choice but to pay fines associated with allegations of several different traffic violations, there are other options available to them.
One strategy is disputing the officer's version of events. Many tickets are the result of a police officer's subjective judgment of events, such as driving unsafely or making an unsafe lane change. For example, if there is heavy traffic and a police officer was in front of the alleged violator, the latter could argue that the officer's attention was likely more focused on the conditions in front of him or her rather than what was happening behind.
