How to beat a speeding ticket in New Jersey: Part 3

I’ve received so many comments from people about how to beat a speeding ticket in New Jersey in my first post and my followup post that I opened up this third post for comments. Note that everything you need to know is in my first post on the subject. You don’t really need to read this third post.

That said, feel free to add your own comments. Do not ask a question like the following, those issues have already been covered many times. Read the post!

    Thank you Lee for the post 1 & 2. I got a speeding ticket on route 17 NJ couple days back. its the 4 point violation (69 in 50mph zone). I am planning to go to court and am in the process of getting a court date.
    Can anybody share their court experience for such tickets. It will be really helpful for me :)
    Thank you

    I’m hoping for a recommendation to lowering my speeding ticket to a non moving violation.

    I was stopped on I-81 in Binghamton, NY, and was given a speeding ticket of 73 in a 55 zone. To make matters worse, it was a work zone so everything is doubled. I am from NJ, which is a 3+ hour drive.

    This is my first speeding ticket in 20+ years. Do you think I have a change of pleaing this down to a non moving violation? And do you recommend that I should hire a local layer.

    Thank you!

    Lee, is there any negative reaction to telling the prosecutor you’re “willing” to pay a surcharge not to get the points?
