Alamance County Speeding Ticket | PJC Prayer For Judgement Continued

Our office is on the I-85 corridor, which means we talk to people from many different states who are passing through and receive speeding tickets in Alamance County. ¬†One question that gets frequently asked by people from other states is, “what is a PJC?”

A PJC, or prayer for judgement continued, is a creature of North Carolina law, whereby a final judgement is never entered. In the case of speeding tickets the upshot is that a PJC can be used to avoid both insurance points and driver’s license points, with certain restrictions.

In general, you can use 1 PJC per household every 3 years to avoid North Carolina insurance points and 2 PJC’s per driver every 5 years to avoid North Carolina¬†driver’s license points. You cannot use a PJC for a DWI, or for driver’s license purposes if you have a commercial driver’s license.

There are other restrictions on the use of a PJC, some of them statutory, others more a matter of policy. The PJC is just one tool that can be used to help people who receive speeding tickets.
