Have a Speeding Ticket in NJ?

We Could Save You Thousands of Dollars on Insurance costs by
Reducing or Eliminating the points on your speeding ticket (39:4-98)

Except for parking tickets, speeding tickets are the most commonly issued ticket in the United States. This is because many towns consider law enforcement officers to be part-time tax collectors, with badges.  Towns are known to make roads which are perfectly safe at higher speeds limited to a lower speed just to bring in revenue. Although speeding ticket quotas in NJ may be illegal, every police officer knows that if he does not write a certain number of traffic tickets he faces the possibility of not being promoted or even worse terminated. 

Attorney H. Scott Aalsberg, Esq., P.C.

Although, your ticket may only raise a hundred or so dollars for the State in regards to a fine, your NJ Speeding ticket can cost you thousands of dollars in increased insurance costs, by jeopardizing your ability to get preferred insurance rates, requiring you to purchase high risk insurance. In addition, to increased insurance costs you will get points on your license and for high speed tickets, even the loss of your license and or jail for up to 15 days. You Need A Defense!

Speeding ticket are generally grouped in three basic categories based on the speed you're alleged to have exceeded:

  • 2 Point Ticket (1-14mph over the limit) (see what speeding tickets should I just pay below
  • 4 Point Ticket (15-29mph over the limit)
  • 5 Point Ticket (30mph or more above the limit) (serious penalties can apply including jail)

Speeding Tickets for CDL Drivers:

If you are CDL Driver and you get convicted of going 15MPH or more over the speed limit not only will you get points on your license, but you could get a suspension of your drivers license, if you are found guilty or just pay the ticket.  Driving a commercial vehicle or having a CDL brings additional responsibilities as a driver even when you are driving your personal car.  If you have priors your license could be suspended for 60 or even 120 days based on your prior record.  See our page about major and serious offenses here or contact our office to learn more.

What Speeding Tickets Should I Just Pay:

The 2 Point Ticket: Our firm is of the opinion that for most drivers a 2 point ticket is better paid for than fought. Here is the logic? A 2 point ticket will come off your motor vehicle record in one year if you remain violation free. Most insurance companies do not surcharge for the first 2 point ticket and simply to hire a good lawyer for a 2 point speeding ticket will cost more than the effects this ticket will have on your license. Hiring a less expensive lawyer may not get you the result you want and you could end up paying more in fines and surcharges. Now this opinion is not for all drivers. Commerical Drivers, Truck Drivers and Drivers for Limo, Taxi or Uber Services generally, must remain violation free so for these drivers you must fight every speeding ticket. For other drivers unless you already have points on your license, or were involved in an accident or other special circumstances, save your money and time going to court and just pay the speeding ticket online.

For Speeding Tickets Involving High Speeds 30MPH+ or Double the Speed Limit:

Attorney H. Scott Aalsberg, Esq., P.C.

A high speed ticket is considered one in which a person is going 30 or more miles over the speed limit, or double the posted speed, whichever is less. Although a judge can impose up to 15 days in jail for any speeding ticket, this punishment is generally saved for the higher speed violations. A high speed violation ticket, is a ticket where the driver was going either double the speed limit or 30mph over the speed limit. For these tickets, a judge may impose jail for up to 15 days, or in the alternative a suspension of your driver's license. A suspension of your NJ Drivers License is the most likely alternative for high speed offenders in NJ rather than jail. That being said, your speed was so excessive that it would amount to not only speeding but also reckless driving, jail could be imposed by the judge. A suspension of your drivers license in New Jersey could last from one day up to or extending past 6 months. If your license is suspended you cannot drive.

Under NJSA: 39:5-31: A judge may suspend the driving privileges of any person he/she deems to be guilty of a “willful violation” of the law. In simplified layman terms this means that, if the driver knew or should have known, what he/she was doing was illegal or improper, (example running a red light or speeding double the limit or 30mph or more over the limit etc.) the judge may issue a license revocation or suspension to that person even if the particular statute has no provision for a license suspension.

A suspension under 39:5-31 is generally only given by a judge when a ticket is either:

  • Marked with a mandatory court appearance or
  • When an accident occurs as a result of the ticketed persons actions or
  • If the person has a bad past driving record. (points may go away over time, but the violation stays on your record for life)
