We appear regularly in traffic courts throughout Essex County, including Montclair, Orange, and West Caldwell. We also understand how important your driving record is when it comes to insurance rates; that’s why we will do everything possible to protect you and minimize any negative consequences.

Essex County Speeding Tickets: N.J.S.A. 39:4-98

Speeding violations in the State of New Jersey are governed by N.J.S.A. 39:4-98. The statute establishes the speed limit for certain kinds of road or areas in the state:

  • School Zone: 25 miles per hour
  • Business or Residential District: 25 miles per hour
  • Suburban District: 35 miles per hour
  • Certain Highways: 55–65 miles per hour
  • All Other Roadways: 50 miles per hour

You can be ticketed for speeding even if the violation occurred on a road that did not have a visible speed limit sign.

NJ Speeding Tickets: Penalties and Points on Your Driver’s License

If you are convicted of speeding in New Jersey, you will be subject to a fine typically ranging between $50 and $200. If the violation occurs in a protected zone, such as a construction zone or a “Safe Corridor Area,” the fine may be doubled.

Speeding violations will also result in motor vehicle points on your license. The total number of points depends on the rate of speed:

  • 1–14 mph over speed limit: 2 points
  • 14–29 mph over speed limit: 4 points
  • 30 mph or more over speed limit: 5 points

In addition to causing your insurance rates to go up, points can also result in the loss of your driving privileges. If you accumulate 10 points, your license may be suspended.
