Unhappy CAUGHT IN OH

I got a ticket on I77S in ohio, 5 exits from the West Va. line by an airplane. I was told I was doing 83 in 65 and my friend behind me was doing 86 not sure how that was possible just yet. Apparantly there was an airplane overhead who thought we needed to be stopped. We were out of state guests as well. There were already two other cops with cars pulled over when they stepped out and pointed at us to pull over. There were other discrepancies in our tickets as well, like the weather conditions and visibility in addition to the speed. She was told to appear in court and I was not but when I look our tickets up online in the court we both have the same fine amount and points charged.
My questions now are:
Is this ticket beatable or reduceable or should I just pay up and say lesson learned.
Also does Ohio report to VA as far as to your insurance or not.

I believe both states or part of the Motor Vehicle Compact and reporting may/will occur post conviction.

What Virginia will do with it is probably up to the standards of that Commonwealth's D.O.T.

I first suggest you make a call to VA DOMV and inquirer whether or not out of state convictions affect your VA MVA and if points are assessed (I believe this varies from state to state).

Based on that answer (preferably in print) then you would be in a better position to discuss the particulars with representatives of Ohio.

If you are living/staying (even temporarily) in Ohio, then perhaps a court appearance would be merited. If have found that negotiations for reduced convictions can often be accomplished without the need for a lawyer, provided you were decent at the time of the traffic stop. Often times with reduced pleas come reduced fines (meaning you may even get a bit a refund).

Speedo could easily be off a few mph.
