Speeding tickets are so common that you might think you don’t need an attorney. However, there are hidden costs to speeding tickets that most drivers don’t realize. The smart thing to do is hire a lawyer to help you beat the ticket or negotiate it down.

What are the penalties for a speeding ticket?

A speeding ticket will result in a fine and points on your license. The penalties vary from $85 and 2 points for 1-9 mph over the speed limit to $269 and 5 points for 35-39 mph over the speed limit. If you were driving more than 10 mph over the speed limit in a 65+ zone, your fine gets doubled. If you have more than 6 points and you’re convicted of a speeding ticket, you also need to pay a $150 surcharge plus an additional $25 per point over 6. If you have 12 or more points within 3 years, your driver’s license gets suspended.

In addition to the legal consequences, speeding tickets will increase your car insurance premiums. One study found that a single New Jersey speeding ticket will increase your premiums by 15%. Over the course of your life, this could cost you thousands of dollars.

What if my driver’s license is from another state?

Even if you’re from another state, a New Jersey speeding ticket can have consequences for you. If you’re convicted of speeding, New Jersey will report the ticket to your state. Plus, you’ll still be on the hook for fines in New Jersey.

What should I do if I get a speeding ticket?

You should hire a lawyer to help you fight the ticket. The prosecutor has to turn over any evidence that you were speeding. If the radar gun or laser the police used to measure your speed weren’t calibrated properly, or if the prosecutor fails to turn over the evidence, the ticket can be dismissed. We can also determine whether the speed limit signs in the area were valid; if not, the ticket can be dismissed. In some cases, we can negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce the fine or the points.
