Legal Question in Traffic Law in New Jersey

I was driving on Route 1 NJ (Rahway) at 75 MPH, because I was late for my University exam which was crucial worth my future. I usually use Route 1 near New Brunswick/Edison/Woodbridge where the speed limit is 55 MPH, but apparently the speed drops to 45 MPH in Rahway. Thus I obtained a speeding ticket. My ticket says 39:4-98- Speeding and it also says Non-Payable Offense. Is it possible to obtain a Probation Before Judgement or a Plea Bargain so that I do not receive points for this. I am willing to pay any amount of fine but I cannot obtain any points. This is my first Speeding Violation.

If you were issued a ticket for allegedly traveling 75/45, thirty over the posted limit this carries 5 motor vehicle points. You can negotiate down the speed but it is not a given that the municipal prosecutor will automatically agree to amend the summons to a no point violation. You actually did not say you were charged with traveling thirty over (or more), but it becomes harder (not necessarily impossible) to negotiate a no point downgrade when the motorist is alleged to have been traveling in excess of thirty miles over the posted limit. If you are able to avoid the points (and the prosecutor agrees to offer a no point violation) you will definately need to pay a surchrge. please call me to discuss further, I never charge a fee merely to speak to someone about their case (201)-342-5030
