Car accidents occur often and they can be incredibly dangerous. Many of these accidents are caused by speeding. As a result, New Jersey law enforcement takes speeding very seriously. Read on to learn more about speeding tickets and their potential consequences.
What is New Jersey’s Point System?
When you get a speeding ticket, you will be issued points on your license. If you accumulate a certain amount of points, you will face a license suspension or revocation. Additionally, these points cause your insurance premiums to go up. This means that a speeding ticket can cost you for years to come. Your consequences will depend on how fast you were going. New Jersey’s point system is as follows:
- 1-14 miles over the posted speed limit: 2-point violation
- 15-30 miles over the posted speed limit: 4-point violation
- 30 miles or more over the posted speed limit: 5-point violation
What are the Consequences of a Speeding Ticket?
When you are found guilty of speeding, you will face a fine corresponding with how fast you were going at the time. The fines for speeding tickets in New Jersey are as follows:
- Speeding by 1-9 mph: $85
- Speeding 10-14 mph: $95
- Speeding by 15-19 mph: $105
- Speeding by 20-24 mph: $200
- Speeding by 25-29 mph: $220
