In New Jersey Speeding is governed by N.J.S.A. 39:4-98. It is no secret that drivers speed through Brick Township every day. Speed limits are posted everywhere from main roads such as Route 70, Route 88, and Hooper Avenue, and residential neighborhoods like Lake Riviera and Mantoloking. Yet, people young and old drive at speeds exceeding the designated speed limits over and over. Law enforcement in Brick is cracking down on speeding in our area, by ordering the construction of speed bumps and placing cameras and speed monitors at intersections.
Hundreds of moving violations are processed in Brick Township each year. Brick Township Police issue these tickets in order to keep the roads safe. Of course, several Brick Township schools are located near main roads. For this reason, speed limits are strictly enforced in these areas. Penalties for speeding in Brick are harsh. Drivers can face fines, driver’s license points, jail time, and driver license suspension.
Instead of waiting to show up at Brick Township Municipal Court to plead guilty and pay your speeding ticket, you should instead speak to a traffic defense attorney first. Speeding tickets carry penalties such as fines up to $200 and points on your driver’s license. The faster the driver traveled over the speed limit, the more points they will receive as punishment. For example:
In New Jersey, once a driver has reached 12 points, he or she will have their driver’s license suspended.
Unbeknownst to many Brick drivers, there are some areas in which speeding fines are doubled. For example, these zones include certain posted areas on the Garden State Parkway or Turnpike, “safe corridor” areas, or construction zones. A judge can also impose jail time and a driver license suspension for excessive speeding over the speed limit.
