I'm 20 and just got my first speeding ticket a few weeks ago.
I was being a dumbass, though. I just got a new job making deliveries, and I got a 'lil lost. Instead of paying attention to the speed limit signs, the warnings of little kids, and this big 'ol playground, I was lookin' for street signs. I thought I was going pretty slow, since I was trying to read the street names (31 mph), but because it was a playground-zone, that's 11 mph over the speed limit.
I don't feel too bad (or criminal) about it, but I do feel stupid. I was driving down that same street the other day and there's all sorts of warnings.
I'm going to court to try and see about getting the ticket reduced, since I've had a perfect driving record and I was lost... we'll see how that goes.
As long as you stick to the speed limit (or usually about five over, as long as it's not a school zone or anything - the police seem pretty strict with school zones 'round here), you'll do fine.
How fast were you goin'? I've known people get caught for speeding and reckless driving less than a month after they got their license... so y'know... eh, I don't know. Feel better/less criminal or something. Everyone gets a ticket sometime.
