New Policy for School Zone Prayer for Judgments in Wake County

As part of several changes to existing traffic court policies, the Wake County District Attorney’s Office announced last week that it would begin consenting to the entry of a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) in Speeding in a School Zone cases where the following criteria is met:

§  The driver was charged with going no more than 15 mph over the post school zone speed limit

§  The driver has no other traffic violations within 3 years

§  The driver has no prior charges for Speeding in a School Zone

§  The driver completes community service at the direction of the judge or magistrate

A Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) is a unique thing to North Carolina but it could mean zero insurance points and zero DMV points if you are able to get one.
