Doylestown, PA asked in Traffic Tickets for New Jersey

Q: I just received NJ violation it was at an intersection that was not clearly marked.How likely can I fight it

The intersection had a flashing yellow signal. The "Road closed AHEAD" was place after the intersection and not before. The police officer was in his car, behind the barriers, with no lights on, just past the intersection. There was a small indistinct arrow on the barriers that appeared to me as go around the barriers not turn and go down the side street. The police office said I was flying when in fact I was only going 17mph in the 25 mph zone. He was unable to state how fast I was going but only state " I can tell when someone is flying over the speed limit." I have this conversation on tape!

A: You can fight any ticket the question is can you win and generally most judges believe the officer. If you had a video it would help a lot more than a tape of the conversation.
