Speeding: N.J.S.A. 39:4-98 & 39:4-99

N.J.S.A. 39:4-99 states, in part, “It shall be prima facie unlawful for a person to exceed any of the foregoing speed limitations or any speed limitation in effect as established by authority of section 39:4-98 of this Title.” Below are the points that can be assessed if found guilty when exceeding the speed limit:

  • Exceeding the speed limit by 1-14MPH is 2 Points
  • Exceeding the speed limit by 15-29MPH is 4 Points
  • Exceeding the speed limit by 30MPH is 5 Points
    • In some jurisdictions, if your speed was 100MPH or greater, a license suspension may be issued by the Court (usually for 30 days).

Keep in mind, that at any time you accumulate twelve (12) or more points your license will be suspended. Also, if you didn’t accumulate twelve (12) or more points but did accumulate twelve (12) or more points during a two (2) year period, then your license will be suspended. Lastly, if you receive six (6) or more points within three (3) years, you’ll be subjected to surcharge fees. The surcharge fee begins at $150, and an additional $25 is added to every point that you or your loved one accumulates.
