New Jersey Speeding Ticket Points and Penalties
Speeding in New Jersey is handled in the New Jersey traffic court where the alleged Speeding violation occurred.
The penalties for Speeding in New Jersey can be stiff compared to other New Jersey traffic violations. If you are convicted of speeding, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) records points on your license:
- § 39:4-98 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 1-14 mph over limit = 2 points
- § 39:4-99 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 15-29 mph over limit = 4 points
- § 39:4-99 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 30 mph or more over limit = 5 points
Once you reach a certain point total on your New Jersey Drivers License, the MVC will impose Point Surcharges in addition to any court imposed fines and penalties on your traffic ticket.
In addition, the level of your car insurance premiums may increase depending on the number of points you have accumulated on your New Jersey Drivers License.
As if the points were not enough, many New Jersey traffic court Judges will suspend your New Jersey Driver’s License for 30 to 60 days depending on how many miles over the speed limit you were traveling.
