I got a ticket yesterday for going 70 in a 55, the njmcdirect website which was listed on the back of the ticket says its 4 points for going 15 over the speed limit, so i wanted to know do those points apply for my Colorado license? And also it says i have to appear in court cuz i accidentally gave the cop an expired insurance card, and on the court date ill be back home in denver... So am i gonna have to pay a few hundred $ to go the court in nj for a stupid ticket?
Thx alot guys, I hope someone can help

Yes the points apply in Colorado. As for how to handle an expired insurance card call up the court and ask what you can do. Those situations are handled differently by every jurisdiction around here so what we could tell you might not apply in NJ. There are some courts which refuse to allow you to change the dates and demand you show up in them. What happens quite often is people just ignore it and end up getting a bench warrant meaning if you get pulled over in that particular state in the future you will be arrested on the spot and dragged into court.

They said I can plead not guilty if I show up at court and show them a valid insurance card I might do that I'm in Maryland now not a new Jersey so it will be a little bit complicated

I see people get pulled over almost every night at a speed trap near my house. I cheer each time I see the lights because they are getting people that were going way too fast

You can avoid these tickets entirely by driving at a speed equal to the number you see posted next to the road. It's a square white sign with black numbers

You will still get a large fine for not having the insurance card with you when you were pulled over. Not as large as the fine you will get for not having it at all, but large none the less. NJ takes the insurance thing really seriously. I think they even consider it worse than not having your driver's license with you. When it happened to me, I showed up in court with the proof that I was insured, and it still cost me roughly $300.

It seemed obvious to me, but from the looks of it someone was paying several hundred dollars for forgetting. Therefore, a reminder must have been in order
