NEW JERSEY CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS: ARE NEW JERSEY’S SPEEDING LAWS TOO LENIENT?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding is a contributing factor in 29 percent of car accidents in the U.S. with an estimated annual economic cost to society of $40.4 billion. Despite the known risks associated with speeding, many drivers continue to put the safety of innocent drivers, passengers and pedestrians in jeopardy by exceeding the speed limit.

In a recent study which compared speeding laws among America’s 50 states and Washington D.C., New Jersey was ranked as the country’s 38th toughest state on speeding.  New Jersey is one of 25 states in which speeding is not automatically upgraded to reckless driving at a set number of miles per hour (mph) over the speed limit.  New Jersey’s fines and insurance increases for speeding violations are also among the lowest.
