My niece received a speeding ticket yesterday on the interstate in North Carolina. She was clocked going 25 over the speed limit and I believe was ticketed for reckless driving and speeding; or maybe it was just the reckless driving. North Carolina is not her home state; she was going to visit friends at school. This is a good kid, 20 year old full time student with a job and internship this summer.
My brother seems to think his daughter will lose her license as they knew another child that lost his license going 25 over in another state. My niece has a court day during her exams. Do you think they can get the date change, or is it just tough luck? They can not send my niece alone to make the drive back to NC; if they suspend her license she will not be able to drive home.
Should they get a lawyer to help handle this as it is out of town? Is 25 over the speed limit an automatic suspended license in North Carolina? Does age play a part in the decision?
Sorry for all the questions, but they are really worried about her license. She said she really didn't realize she was going that fast as she was going down hill. If she drives like my brother, then I am sure she drives above the speed limit on the interstate, but not that fast. I have driven with her before and found her to be a good driver, not that it really matters where this is concerned.
