If you have been charged with a speeding violation, you may face serious penalties that can result in up to 5 points on your license and various fines—the worse the offense, the more points will be added to your license. The more points you have on your license, the more likely your license will be suspended or revoked; 12 points on your license is grounds for suspension. According to N.J.S.A. 39:4-98, the penalties for speeding vary depending on your speed:
(1) If you exceeded the maximum speed 1-14 mph over the limit, you are subject to 2 points on your license.
(2) If you exceed the maximum speed 15-29 mph over the limit, you are subject to 4 points on your license.
(3) If you exceed the maximum speed 30 mph or more over the limit, you are subject to 5 points on your license.
In addition to receiving points on your license, your speed may also make you subject to a reckless driving or careless driving charge.
