Penalties for a moving violation
If you have been caught speeding, you face the possibility of points on your driving record, leading to higher insurance and state surcharges. These issues will impact you financially for years and the severity of the consequences depends on the violation. A careless driving ticket is a 2-point violation. In general, the New Jersey speeding violation point system is simple. Speeding between 1-14 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 2-point violation. Speeding between 15-30 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 4-point violation. Excess of 30 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 5-point violation and could subject you to a reckless driving ticket. If you get 6 or more points, you will be assessed a surcharge. If you get 12 or more points on your driving record, you will have your license suspended. It is important to retain the services of an effective attorney that can protect your rights and represent your future.
Most tickets can be plea bargained by a skilled attorney. Prosecutors are open to negotiating the terms of a ticket in order to avoid complications in court. It is important to note that a prosecutor can only plea bargain down to a related offense. A speeding ticket cannot be downgraded to failure to fix a headlight. Also, prosecutors cannot plea bargain severe tickets, including DUI cases.
