I was cited for 105 in a 65 zone on 71 S in Ohio. My record is otherwise perfect. The conditions were; sunny and clear, with "moderate" traffic. The fine was $180 and 4 points. I know (after speaking to the Lt. at the Aerial Surveillance dept) that the plane usually operates at ~2000 ft above ground and that there was highway construction on this highway. Even from 500 ft. above ground, that would be equivalent to identifying/distinguishing a 1 foot object from 38 feet away, fairly difficult and subjective in my estimation. Factoring in human error of .5 seconds at each end of the markers translates to an avg speed of 94 mph vs. 105 assuming the distance was 1/4 mile. I would very much like to keep this incident (and the points) off of my record and I was wandering what advice you might have. I'm hoping that the DA will be reasonable and bump it down when I go speak to him this week. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
