Understanding the Penalties for New Jersey Speeding Tickets

New Jersey Speeding Ticket Attorney

New Jersey speeding tickets can result in a variety of financial fines, points on your driving record, and even possible jail time. Depending on the circumstances, you may be required to appear in court. Points and fines for a speeding offense increase in proportion to how fast you were going. The basic New Jersey point and fine structure are as follows:

  • One to 14 mph over the speed limit: two points
  • 15 to 29 mph over the speed limit: four points
  • 30 mph or more over the speed limit: five points

When a driver receives 12 or more points in any two-year period, their driver’s license is suspended for at least 30 days. If you were driving especially fast, the police could even add a reckless driving ticket on top of the speeding ticket. Not only will reckless driving add even more points to your record, but reckless driving in New Jersey can be treated as a misdemeanor-level offense. Jail time and even more substantial financial penalties could apply.

In addition to points, you will have to pay the fine associated with the ticket—which begins at $85 but can quickly increase to well over $200 for higher speeds (and fines are doubled in construction and 65-mph zones).

The Law Offices of Michele Finizio knows that the stakes are high even in relatively minor speeding ticket cases. Points add up over time—and the cost of increased insurance premiums could haunt you for years. The firm’s New Jersey speeding ticket attorney takes the time to go over your case in detail to build a custom-tailored strategy for your defense.

Frequently Asked Questions About New Jersey Speeding Ticket Defense

Frequently Asked Questions About Traffic Ticket Violations in New Jersey

What should I do if I receive a traffic ticket?

What are the possible penalties if I get a traffic ticket?

What if I was cited for speeding but did not see a speed limit sign? Can I use the lack of a posted sign as a defense? 

The lack of a posted speed limit sign is not a defense against a speeding ticket. New Jersey establishes basic parameters that govern speeds in various areas. Drivers are responsible for knowing those speed limits, even if there is no sign posted. 

For example, the speed limits are:

-25 mph in school zones
-25 mph in residential and business districts
-35 mph in suburban business and residential districts
-50 mph in most other locations
-65 mph as provided in the 65 mph Speed Limit Implementation Act (i.e., certain highways)

While lack of knowledge is generally not a defense, an experienced New Jersey Speeding Ticket Attorney can help you develop a valid defense to minimize the impact of a speeding ticket.

If my insurance rates go up because of a speeding ticket, is there any way to reduce them again? 

Some insurance companies will consider reducing your insurance rates after a period of time has passed or if you take an approved defensive driving course. Completing a defensive driving course can actually result in points being taken off your record. You can only take the course once every five years, but successful completion will deduct two points from your record (in other words, one minor speeding ticket).
