In New Jersey, the issuance of speeding ticket is one solution to prevent traffic accidents. Two reasons why speeding tickets are necessary: (1) to slow drivers to slow down and the best measure to control road rage & aggressive drivers; and (2) to generate an excessive amount of revenue to fill the coffers for the local municipalities.

It is a fact that today people are affected by time pressures of life plus the immense stresses of living from day-to-day. People considered that every minute counts to achieve what they want; so they drive too aggressively and too fast. The amount raised from the issuance of traffic tickets will go a long way to finance projects of the DOT.

In New Jersey, a speeding ticket issued for motorists who are speeding from 1 to 14 miles over the limit and is equivalent to a 2- point offense. For over speeding from15 to 29, a 4-point offense is added. Finally, if speeding is over the limit of 30 or more; a 5-point offense is added.

The state designated areas considered as “Safe Corridor”, also called as a “Safe Corridor Area”, along these corridors, fines are doubled. These designations are intended to make the roads safer. However, there are doubts raised by the communities that the purpose of these designations is a simply gimmick to raise more money for the State. Furthermore; in most cases, fines for traffic tickets are doubled if the over speeding happened along the Turnpike. However, some courts of the municipality do not double the penalty if the speeding happened on the New Jersey Turnpike. Along construction zones, fines are also doubled if the speeding is done along these risky areas.

The present trend points to more and more roads or highways designated as a special type of zone. Probably, in the coming days, there will additional zones called: Safe School Way Zone, the Safe Neighborhood Zone, the Safe Park Road Zone, with the list going on and on. So motorists must brace themselves to more coming highways under special zones classification.

To beat a speeding ticket is number one problem for most men behind the wheel. The bitter reality is that only a few ways are available for drivers to beat a laser or a radar ticket. There are police officers who are sloppy in doing their paperwork as their training certifications may have lapsed. On the other hand, sometimes the radar or the laser machines may have malfunctioned, or have not been tested properly.

For drivers who beat a speeding ticket through trial, aside from the essential need to hire a lawyer, many judges require that a radar or laser expert be presented by the defense during the trial. This requirement is very expensive and in most Municipal Courts has never been done.
