20 over is mandatory court appearance in VA -- you better find out if Ohio is the same. Maybe you can send Ben?

It should work out for you given your record. I'd be they either dismiss it, although 20 over in a 25 zone is pretty bad in their eyes, or suspend it. Since you don't drive in OH, you'll make it through the suspension and it'll be dropped.
Doubt it with the way state coffers are short on funds...they love out of state money!

Also depending on how OH reports it, it may show up as a reckless on your VA license, in which case your fuched.

Default Nurbergring Scam Fail.

Freshly owned guy on Rennlist. Complains about a bad experience in Germany renting a car for a Spa/Nurburgring junket. Rennlisters smell the dishonesty. German 'Ring vendor steps in and slams the door.

(Excuse mispelling of NurbUrgring.)

Maybe your truck is just mis-named???
Then again, the name doesn't imply you'll return.

Don't ignore and just pay or you will be paying for years! Even if you just show up you could prolly plead it down to speeding. Open your checkbook and get some of your special lube!!
