Sounds like a nothing-burger ticket.. Really 11 over in vast NV? That said, if it's just fine, I'd pay and forget.

I doubt rental companies check of your record goes beyond the binary "does the renter have a valid license" question.

Some of those long straights, you can hit safely hit triple digit speeds for miles on end.

But Im ok paying a relatively cheap fine. I was just worried if it was going to affect renting cars in the future.

Here is one of NVs famous racing event:

The Silver State Classic Challenge is an authorized Open Road Racing event that is run since 1988 on a 90 mi (140 km) stretch of State Route 318 in Nevada, United States, which is closed for the occasion.

It is called the fastest road race in the world by Guinness,[1] It was the venue for the highest speed achieved on a public highway, when Charles "Chuck" Shafer and Gary Bockman averaged 207.7801 mph (334.3897 km/h) in May 2000,[2] in a Chrysler LeBaron ARCA race car. Although high-speed race cars receive much of the publicity, the majority of participants take part in mainstream street cars at average speeds ranging from 95 to 150 mph (153 to 241 km/h). These cars run the gamut from sports cars such as Corvettes and Mustangs to sedans such as Nissan Skylines, Mercedes wagons, and even Saturns.

Perhaps one of you carmudgeons can come here and give it a go.

I think this has already been stated, but you got the ticket . . . not the car

I got a parking ticket in a rental once. I paid the parking ticket. Then I got a bill from the rental company saying they also paid the ticket and that in the rental agreement I promised to reimburse them for all tickets. I double paid and left it because it was easier than figuring out how to get one of us reimbursed.

It's not the same as a speeding ticket though.

Oh and despite no points, your insurance may increase. The last time I had a speed violation reduced to some silly non-point variant, my rate went up anyway because it was a "surchargable offense"

Hoping not.

I've had plenty of warnings (because I was wearing scrubs and my hospital ID) but they were from the local police and sheriff departments.
