Bergen County Speeding Violation Attorney

Defending clients facing NJ speeding tickets

Speeding violations come with various fines and penalties. Law enforcement in New Jersey actively pursues drivers who unlawfully break the speed limit, issuing tickets to reflect these infractions. If you are issued a speeding ticket in the state of New Jersey, you have a lot to consider. You could face a ticket with between 2 and 5 points, depending on your violation. In New Jersey, the points issued to your license will reflect an increase in your insurance premium, impacting you financially. In some of these cases, depending on the circumstances, you can fight your ticket or negotiate a plea bargain with an effective and knowledgeable attorney. If you need quality legal support from an experienced New Jersey traffic violations attorney, contact The Law Offices of Richard E. Novak, LLC for a consultation today.

Speeding Violation

If you are caught speeding and issued a ticket, you face fines, points on your license, and other surcharges that will financially impact your future. New Jersey’s points system is simple.

  • 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

If you are issued a ticket in excess of 30 miles per hour, you may be subject to a reckless driving ticket. If you were to accumulate 6 or more points on your license within 3 years, you will be assessed a surcharge, an additional fee. If you accumulate 12 or more points on your license, your license may be suspended. It is important to consult with an effective New Jersey attorney to fight these charges.

Plea Bargains in New Jersey

A skilled attorney can often plea bargain to lessen the charges of a speeding violation. Prosecutors are open to negotiations in order to avoid court complications that cost the state more money than would be recovered through the ticket itself. In many of these cases, a ticket can only be downgraded to a related offense. Prosecutors cannot plea bargain some of the most serious tickets, including DUIs.
