New Jersey Traffic Ticket Attorneys
One of the most commonly issued traffic tickets in New Jersey is Careless Driving, under N.J.S.A. 39:4-97. While the court fine itself is relatively minimal, the two Motor Vehicle Commission imposed points associated with this charge, can have lasting and damaging repercussions. Depending on your driving record, these two points may push you over the threshold for yearly DMV surcharges or an administrative suspension. Not to mention your car insurance rates may hike if your provider considers your careless driving as an indication of a “high-risk” driver. Considering all of these ancillary exposures you may be facing, it is imperative that you familiarize yourself not only with the law, but with the tactics and strategies utilized by skilled criminal and traffic attorneys. Do not let your desire to “get the tickets over with” cloud your judgment as such a guilty plea could come back to haunt you down the road.

Careless Driving Ticket Amended to No Point $56 Fine
Recently, I appeared on a traffic ticket in northern New Jersey for a careless driving summons involving a motor vehicle accident. Our client already had ten points on her driver’s license and, if convicted of careless driving, would be issued two (2) motor vehicle points and put her over the twelve (12) point threshold, thus exposing her to an administrative license suspension from NJ MVC. Thankfully, we were able to negotiate a plea where our client would not suffer any motor vehicle point. Furthermore, our client only paid a fine of $56, as opposed to the potential $202 fine associated with a careless driving traffic ticket. Suffice to say, our client was more than pleased with the outcome of the case, especially considering the fact that we also were granted a civil reservation regarding the accident.
