If the police is not satisfied with you own statement of your income the
case goes to court and becomes nasty. If you get caught first start
bargaining on the actual ammount of speeding in terms of km/h, then on
your income. Do pay the ticket especially if you come from a country
whose citizens need a visa to enter Schengen, because an unpaid traffic
fine is a reason for refusal of granting a new visa to any Schengen
