Got my first ticket. 8 over, 73 in a 65. now what?

So I got my first ticket I was going 73 in a 65 in New Mexico. The speedometer was not working and I knew it wasn't working but I drove anyways. No my fault. my question is what excuseshappens now that I've got a speeding ticket at 8 miles per hour over?

I was wondering about the point system and how that works with a ticket like this and looking for other jobs with one ticket on my record and I haven't had a ticket in 15 years. also how do I get that ticket erased or how long does it take for for that type of ticket to go away. Someone even suggested to me to get a lawyer.

I have a class A CDL with hazmat and tanker endorsement. I appreciate the comments and feedback.

Looking for honest answers.

This is my story. Got my CDL almost 2 years ago with Coors. Was Bringin home $575 a week. Monday thru Friday. Rough job, a lot of labor, cheap labor. Got on with a Fracking company, 2 weeks on, 1 week off. Easiest money you will make. Bringin home between $2800-$3800 every 2 weeks. Crazy money. Got laid off on February. Now I'm drivin oil field equipment all over TX, NM, OK, and LA. Bringin home $1900 every 2 weeks. It's an on call position/salary so don't really know when I'll be workin or for how long. That's the crappy part. Other then that I'm racking up miles and getting a ton of experience on a lot of different types of equipment.

Point is, there are a lot of different ways to use your CDL. So many different types of trucks, jobs, schedules, pay and how they pay.

Personally, I'm 2 months away from a full 2 years of CDL experience and am gonna try to use my tanker and hazmat endorsements for better money/schedule etc.

Playin guitar

If I was OTR I would definitely have my guitar with me. When I was Fracking I was taking my guitar with me. Are schedule was 2 weeks on 1 week off. But we were also staying in hotels, but if I was OTR, my guitar would be my best friend.

All great advice, I all ready do most of those things except for the chair that locks or not deal. I did not know that.

And the wooden bead thing that Brett talked about is more of what I'm trying to find out. Those kind of seat covers that help make the ride more comfortable. Shoot, I bet there is one out there that is a massage type of chair. If not, I've got dibs on that invention.

In sure there is something out there that u can sit on that can make the ride more comfortable. Rather than look mindlessly on the Internet and reading lame or false reviews I thought some one here might have a secret they would like I share. I guess I'm alone on this issue.

What is the best seating support device that y'all use? Or is it about posture? Or a combo of both?

I have been driving a lot lately for this oilfield company and I'm starting to fill it in my butt and back.
