If he wrote you up for 80+ he did you a favor, taking it to court could piss off the judge and may cost you EVEN more! I've been in traffic court here and I have seen it go worse for you by trying to make the officer out as being stupid when he was "helping you out" in the judges opinion.
At $60.00 and less than 15 MPH over you don't take an insurance hit so why waste time going to court which will cost you more in time wasted than out of pocket expense?
