Police Department or Sheriff's Office
When a speeding ticket is issued, the officer who issued the ticket has a copy of it. A starting point to get a copy of a lost ticket is the police department or sheriff's office in the jurisdiction the ticket was issued.
You can also contact the courthouse in the city or county where the speeding ticket was issued. The court system will have a record of the ticket, because you have an option to go to court to contest or mitigate the infraction.
If You Don't Respond
You have a certain number of days to respond to a speeding ticket before late fees are added to the fine. Your driver's license could be suspended if you fail to respond. The fine could be turned over to a collection agency, which would lower your credit score.
