Call A Lawyer Before You Pay The Fine. You Can Actually Save Money!
Driving above the posted speed limit probably doesn’t feel like a very serious offense in today’s busy society. It is something that most people can probably admit to doing. Despite the common nature of the offense, New Jersey law enforcement officers and court officials take this behavior seriously. Some judges are even willing to order jail time.
“I got a speeding ticket doing 96 mph in a 55 zone. They issued speeding and careless driving. I contacted Tom. He informed me of every detail, took care of everything. He was very professional and I would recommend him to everyone. End of the day, I walked out with 0 points paying 99 bucks. No one can top that …” — John, a former client

Penalties For Speeding Are Serious And Costly
The categories for speeding violations and the number of points associated with each are clear under New Jersey law:
- Exceeding maximum speed 1-14 mph over limit (two points)
- Exceeding maximum speed 15-29 mph over limit (four points)
- Exceeding maximum speed 30 mph or more over limit (five points)
What is less clear are the potential consequences that “just paying the fine” could have for you. In many situations, a citation for speeding is not the only traffic ticket the officer will write. Multiple citations, points already on your record and other circumstances can lead to all of the following penalties:
- Steep surcharges
- Additional points on your driving record
- Increased insurance premiums
- Suspension of your driver’s license
- Jail time
- Impact on employment for individuals who work under a commercial driver’s license or are required to travel for business
