Speeding Penalties in New Jersey

Speeding Penalties in Bergen County, New Jersey

Arguably the most common traffic violation that one may face is speeding. It seems as though nearly everyone at some point in their driving life will be pulled over for driving too fast. Repeat offenders and those who drive way too far over the speed limit may be subject to very serious consequences and may require the services of a traffic violations attorney to help them fight their ticket.

If an individual is found to be driving 1-14 miles per hour over the speed limit, they may face a 2-point violation. If an individual is driving between 15 and 30 miles per hour over the speed limit, they may be subject to a 4-point violation. Finally, when someone is driving 30 miles per hour or more over the posted speed limit, they will not only be subject to a 5-point violation but also a reckless driving ticket.

Points on one’s license can result in increased insurance premiums. In addition, if a driver has 6 points on their license within 3 years, they may get a surcharge. After 12 points, their license may be suspended. If you have gotten a speeding ticket, contact us today.
