Rates of Speed N.J.S.A. 39:4-98
This statute is more commonly known as speeding. Speeding is broken down into three categories according to the Motor Vehicle Point System depending on how much a person is driving over the speed limit.
1. If a person is travelling up to 14 MPH over the speed limit, 2 points will be assessed on their driver’s license.
2. If a person is going anywhere from 15-29 MPH over the limit, 4 points will be assessed.
3. And finally if a person is in excess of 30 or more over the speed limit, 5 points will be assessed to your driver’s license.
4. In addition, speeding comes with fines that are increased if speeding in a safe corridor area, construction zone or a 65MPH zone.
5. For any speeding case, the state must prove three elements: 1) the defendant was operating the vehicle, 2) the speed limit on that road, 3) the driver exceeded the speed limit.
