Speeding

Speeding in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

When someone receives a speeding ticket, they need an experienced lawyer by their side who can help navigate through the criminal justice process. The consequences of speeding in Pennsylvania and New Jersey can have a long-term impact on the driving record of the alleged speeder and can even stand in the way of being hired for jobs that require driving. Additionally, insurance rates are likely to increase and points that are assessed as a result of the violation will appear on their driving record for years. If a driver’s record reaches the state maximum for number of points accrued, their license will be suspended and additional fines will be assessed. Depending on the severity of the violation, a citation can even result in an arrest and jail time.

Excessive Speeding
For excessive speeding tickets, the consequences can be even more devastating. In Pennsylvania, a charge of traveling 31 miles per hour or more over the limit is classified as excessive speeding. In addition to monetary fines, a possible rise in insurance premiums and the assessment of points, an excessive speeding conviction will result in a departmental hearing and (1) a fifteen day license suspension, or (2) a special on road driver’s examination, or both.
