So earlier this morning, I "ran" a red light. Supposedly I did so, even though me and three other friends in the car swore it didn't happen. Plus, I'm pretty sure the guy was trying to meet a quota or something because he just pulled some other person over again about 10-15mins after I left. My question is, what's the penalty of this ticket? I ran one red light before but the ticket was sent to my house, so that was just a fine and I got no points or anything on my record. I have no interest in going to court to contest this $85 ticket even though I'll probably win, so I'd prefer to just plead guilty and pay the ticket. To be more precise about my question, what I'm mainly wondering is, will I get points on my license for this? I'd rather just pay the $85 penalty fee and call it a day, but if I actually get points on my license I'd rather just go in and contest it instead of paying the higher insurance rates. Edit: This happened in Newark, NJ by the way if that helps.
