28-701.02. Excessive speeds.

A. A person shall not:

1. Exceed thirty-five miles per hour approaching a school crossing.

2. Exceed the posted speed limit in a business or residential district by more than twenty miles per hour, or if no speed limit is posted, exceed forty-five miles per hour.

3. Exceed eighty-five miles per hour in other locations.

Excessive or criminal speed is a criminal traffic charge.  Do not simply plead guilty to a "speeding" charge, because this type of ticket is definitely criminal.  It often has to be disclosed on job and school applications and impacts your insurance more negatively than a civil speeding ticket.

I have presented lectures on this subject to attorneys and advised other attorneys how to deal with these cases.  I can help you.
