2 POINTS!! wow thats very generous for going almost double the posted limit. Back in the days ie: 1994, I got pulled over by NY state troopers on route 17 doing 120. The trooper wrote the ticket for 105, and I still had to get a lawyer, pay $1700 ticket and do 100 hours of community service (which I did at my local parish) as part of the plea deal the lawyer made with the judge to prevent my license from being revoked. I still got 11 points for that infraction.
If you are gonna speed at least invest in a V-1 or dont do it at all. Totally not worth it.
