Officer’s Testimony Alone Sufficient to Prove Speed Zone – State v. Morgan

Yesterday’s Appellate Division holding in State v. Morgan stands for the proposition that the sworn testimony of a police officer can be sufficient evidence to prove the authorized speed on a roadway during a speeding prosecution. The Appellate Division also expressed its concern about continuing the validity of N.J.S.A. 39:5-31, the statute which permits a judge to revoke a driver’s license for a willful violation of Subtitle 1 of Title 39. However, the panel declined to rule on the merits of this issue due to mootness.
