39:3-37.1 Traffic Ticket for Allowing Dismissed

My firm recently had the privilege of assisting an innocent person who was wrongfully charged with Allowing an Unlicensed Person to Drive, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:3-37.1. My client, the owner of a motor vehicle, had her car unwillingly driven off her property by a third party who happened to be an unlicensed permanent resident (short of citizenship). That third party was subsequently caught driving the motor vehicle and issued multiple tickets, one being Unlicensed Driver, under N.J.S.A. 39:3-10(b). Through negotiations with the prosecutor, I was able to force his hand and obtain a dismissal of my clients pending charges. This Bergen County Municipal Court was not happy to dismiss the case. However, based on the insufficient proofs in their case, the State was forced to dismiss all of the charges. By obtaining, this dismissal, I kept my client from having to pay over $500 in fines and court costs, as well as keeping her out of the Bergen County Jail.
