Vernon Speeding Defense Lawyers

Traffic Ticket Defense Attorneys in Sussex and Warren County, New Jersey

Ticket for Speeding Phillipsburg NJ Lawyer Needed

Speeding Ticket

Whether you are late for work, in a rush to make an appointment, or simply not paying attention to the posted speed limit, a speeding ticket will only serve to ruin your day. Then, you’ll also have to go to the municipal court in the town where the offense occurred, which will only be another inconvenience. For the most part, speeding violations are not the most complicated legal matters; however, a traffic violation lawyer can not only help explain the municipal court process to you and tell you about the potential fines and points that may be assessed but we can also get you in-and-out of court faster because attorneys are permitted to speak with the municipal prosecutor first and be heard by the judge before the defendants who do not have an attorney. The New Jersey traffic defense attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm in Warren County and Sussex County also are familiar with the negotiation strategies that apply to speeding violations. We have used these strategies to achieve dismissals and superior outcomes for clients in Sparta, Vernon, Hackettstown, Phillipsburg, and across New Jersey. Contact our offices today at 973-755-1695 to learn how we can help you. One of our highly knowledgeable speeding defense lawyers will be happy to answer your questions with a cost-free consultation.

Speeding Violations in New Jersey

The New Jersey traffic laws set forth acceptable motor vehicle speeds in R.S. 39:4-98 which establishes that speed limits on New Jersey roads shall be 25 mph when passing through a school zone during recess, when the presence of children is clearly visible from the roadway, or while children are going to or leaving school, during opening or closing hours; 25 mph in any business or residential district; 50 mph in all other locations except for 65 mph zones; and as otherwise posted pursuant to speed limit signs. Accordingly, pursuant to R.S. 39:4-99, it shall be prima facie unlawful for a person to exceed any speed limitation and in every charged of violation, the complaint and the summons or notice to appear shall specify the speed at which the defendant is alleged to have driven as well as the speed limit alleged to have been violated. The key language is “exceed.” In other words, as crazy as it sounds, technically you can be issued a speeding ticket if you are going only 1 mph over the speed limit.

Penalties for Speeding in New Jersey

The penalties for speeding include fines, potential imprisonment, and points on your license. The fines for speeding are at the court’s discretion and can range from $50 to $200, but will be doubled if the speed is 20 mph over the limit or if the speed is 10 mph over the limit in a 65 mph zone. Additionally, the traffic code permits the court to impose a jail sentence of up to fifteen days. Finally, the motor vehicle commission will also assess points to be recorded on the driver’s abstract, which may impact insurance premiums and result in license suspensions, as follows: 2 points for speeding 1-14 mph over the limit; 4 points for 15-29 mph over the limit; and 5 points for exceeding the speed limit by 30 mph or more.
