I recently received a ticket in the mail for speeding(79 in 65) in Iowa, but I live in MN. What are my options, besides paying?

All US Mail is tracked now fyi.
The ticket is Iowa, so it's Iowa law that governs it, not MN.
The most important thing of all is that you learn the lesson and never repeat what it was you did wrong. For example, if you were speeding, from now on: Never tailgate. No fone or other electronics - stash those things 'off' and in trunk. Always blinkers. Always 100 percent full stops at stop signs. Never speed but go max' of speed limit. When you do a total 180 with your driving behaviors, you'll be stunned to see what a MASSIVELY POWERFUL force of good you are on the roadways.
There are no accidents - car crashes are crashes, no accident. Winding up crashing, hurting or scaring other people on the road, getting 'road rage'/angry while driving.... NOT GOOD!! People wind up maimed and dead, families hurt and broken hearted. NEVER booze -or any other drug- then behind wheel!!
You Can Change For The Better !! And this world needs each of us to do just that !!
