Sometime you aren’t even aware that you are doing it. And other times you are fully aware and just need to get somewhere. Whatever your reason for speeding in Bayonne, NJ, this is a ticket that is never fun to deal with. On top of the annoyance, a Bayonne speeding ticket can turn into a very expensive headache if not handled correctly. Working with the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt can help eliminate or minimize the impact this ticket can have on your driving future.
Situated in the Gateway Region of Hudson County, Bayonne had a population of just over 65,000 residents. For those residents that are of driving age and for everyone passing thru, make sure you check your speed limit at all times! Bayonne police love to catch speeders. As you probably already know, the higher you are driving over the posted speed limit, the more and stiffer legal consequences you will have to deal with if you are caught. Here’s a look at some of the penalties you might face if you are convicted:
· Fines: The fines attached to a Bayonne speeding ticket are meant to punish you for your offense and deter you from ignoring the speed limit in the future.
· License Suspension: For many speeders, going over the speed limit was not the only reason you were pulled over. Examples of this include car accidents with a personal injury and DUI’s- both these scenarios are examples of when the court will also suspend your license in addition to imposing all the fines and punishment that go along with the additional charge.
· Points: 2-5 points are attached to your driving record depending on your speed and these points mean that you might also have insurance and license suspension issues to deal with on top of a speeding ticket. In Bayonne and all of New Jersey, twelve points is all it takes to get an automatic drives’ license suspension based on points.
Those are just a handful of the punishments you should expect if you are convicted of speeding in Bayonne. As I tell every client that I work with- just because you are charged with a traffic offense does not mean that you will be convicted of it. A speeding ticket is definitely something you want to make sure you fight. Get in touch with the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt today for a free consultation on your case.
