A ticket for a traffic violation can be more than just an inconvenience: it can lead to a suspended license

However, a lawyer can fight a traffic violation in New Jersey so that you can maintain your livelihood.

Understanding the New Jersey Points Schedule

​Receiving a ticket while trying to navigate the traffic in East Brunswick, Wall, and Freehold New Jersey is a common problem. Tickets from moving violations add points to your driving record and the severity of the violation dictates how many points you receive on your driving record. Points can range from two points for failure to observe a stop sign, to eight points for leaving the scene of an accident with a personal injury. These can add up quickly, especially for clients with multiple traffic tickets. 

A growing point tally leads to higher insurance rates. Accrue enough points and you can lose your driver's license. If you earn your living with a commercial driver's license (CDL), too many traffic tickets can be a career-killer. It is important to find a lawyer who can help you keep your CDL so you can keep your job.

Amazing experience. I had 16 points on 5 tickets but Mr Jeffrey got 3 tickets dismissed and one reduced and walked out of the court with 2 points. I would recommend him to everyone because he know his stuff as he was prosecutor himself too and he is very genuine in prices as well.

Common Violations and Citations 

Speeding

Getting pulled over for speeding while navigating the traffic of East Brunswick New Jersey can be frustrating. Although a single speeding ticket will likely not have a significant impact on your life, how far over the speed limit you were driving will dictate how many points you will receive.

Violations less than 14 miles-per-hour over the limit result in two points. If caught speeding 14 to 24 miles-per-hour over the limit, you will end up with four points. For driving 25 miles-per-hour over the limit, you will receive a five-point violation. If you receive a traffic ticket at 30 miles-per-hour over the limit, the New Jersey traffic court has the power to immediately revoke your license

If you are convicted of driving on a suspended license, you not only face a fine: you could lose your driver's license for an additional six months on top of your existing suspension.

Reckless Driving and Careless Driving

Many drivers in New Jersey traffic are cited with careless or reckless driving. These two traffic violations are related, but there are a several key differences. It all comes down to severity and the driver's intent. 

Careless driving is a less serious traffic violation. It assumes that the driver had no intention to break a law. A careless driver is a person who drives without due caution and without the intent of injury or the destruction of property.

Reckless driving carries a heavier penalty because it is assumed that the driver has intent to endanger a person or property. Choosing a traffic ticket lawyer with a background in criminal defense can be useful, as a person found guilty of reckless driving can get up to 60 days in jail.
