Stupid Stupid Stupid.

I went through a reckless driving phase that ended over a year ago. Unfortunately, I also got several tickets during that time. I've been a much safer driver since then, but about a month ago, I had a cop get in behind me. I got so nervous (on top of being really tired and out of it to begin with) because he was following me so closely that I was too busy looking in my rearview mirror to watch my spedometer. He pulled me over, and wrote me a ticket for going 20 over in a work zone.

Yesterday I got a letter in the mail saying that my license is going to be suspended for 30 days due to points accumulation. It sucks so bad. I don't have any way of getting to work - public transportation/walking/riding a bike isn't an option since I live way out in the country and I don't have any friends or family that would be available all the time to drive me around. I don't feel like I deserve this... I already learned my lesson a year ago; this one was just an honest accident! I don't deserve more punishment than the fines I've already paid... I guess my only option is to hire an attorney and appeal and hope for the best.
