How Does the New Jersey Point System Work?

How Does the New Jersey Point System Work?

Speeding is one of the most common, widespread driving offenses. Unfortunately, and rather obviously, just because it happens often does not make it safe. However, people do it anyway, and if you were pulled over for speeding, you most likely now have to appear in court. Many people do not think they need an attorney to fight a speeding ticket–they’re wrong. Speeding tickets are very serious and can have lasting implications that haunt you for years to come. If you are interested in having your speeding ticket reduced or potentially thrown away altogether, read on and contact our experienced firm today.

How many points are added to your license for speeding in New Jersey?

Though we tend to brush off speeding tickets as “no big deal,” unfortunately, this is simply not the case. If you are someone who was issued a speeding ticket, you face points added to your license, fees paid to the courts, a rise in your insurance premiums, and, in some cases, even a suspension or revocation of your license. Rather obviously, speeding tickets are not to be taken lightly. If you have been pulled over for a speeding ticket, here are some of the consequences you may face:

  • 2 points for driving 1-14 miles over the speed limit
  • 4 points for driving 15-30 miles over the speed limit
  • 5 points for driving 30 miles or more over the speed limit

If you are a repeat offender, you may receive additional points on your license. The more points you accumulate, the more consequences you may face as a result. For example, if you accumulate more than 6 points, you will most likely be shackled with an additional fee. Those with 12 or more points, on the other hand, may face very serious consequences, such as a license suspension. Once you have your license suspended, you may find it very challenging to have your driving privileges reinstated. This is why you must hire an experienced attorney from the very beginning to fight your charges.
