Careless driving Ticket Downgraded to Cheaper No-Point Ticket
Careless Driving is that “catch-all” traffic ticket that can apply to almost any type of driving. The language of the statute is intentionally vague so that it may cover almost any situation. All that needs to happen is: 1) driving a vehicle without due caution or circumspection, and 2) a likelihood that this driving could endanger person or property. Moreover, most of this is left up to the interpretation of the officer involved as they are typically the only other party witness to the action. For these reasons, among others, drivers often contact our office to help them fight these two (2) point tickets so that they may keep their driver’s abstract as clean as possible.

Careless Driving Amended to Delaying Traffic Ticket
Recently, I appeared before a Monmouth County municipality to handle a traffic ticket involving Careless Driving. Our client was an out-of-state driver who had committed this alleged infraction while he was visiting the shore. He had a history of driving issues and it was important to keep any more points or violations off his record. Through our representation, we were able to negotiate his ticket down to a non-moving violation that did not carry any points and would likely not affect his insurance costs. Furthermore, this was all done by affidavit, which permitted our client to stay home and not miss work while we handled all of the grunt work. In the end, our client walked out with a $56 fine and no additional points on his license.
