If you have received a traffic ticket, you may be tempted to pay the fine and move on with your life. While this certainly is an option, it is an option that is strongly ill-advised.
In New Jersey, traffic violations can carry serious penalties. Beyond the fines that typically apply, admitting to a traffic violation (by paying the fine voluntarily) can also mean points on your driving record, and the accumulation of points can lead to eventual license suspension or revocation. You can face increased insurance costs and surcharges as well and, for some traffic violations (including DWI), you could even be looking at spending time in jail.
At Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A., our team of defense attorneys includes several former prosecutors who have decades of experience on both sides of traffic ticket cases in municipal court. We know how the state prosecutes these cases, and we know the defense strategies that are most likely to be successful. We also understand just how significantly a conviction for a serious traffic offense can impact your life, and we can use our experience to help mitigate the consequences of your citation to the greatest extent possible.
Under New Jersey’s “points” system, as few as three traffic violations (resulting in an accumulation of 12 or more points) can result in suspension of your driver’s license. As few as two violations (resulting in an accumulation of six or more points) can result in surcharges, court costs and other financial penalties. The points assessed for common traffic violations in Flemington, NJ are as follows:
If you are convicted of DWI or caught driving without a license, you can lose your driver’s license (or have your license suspension extended) immediately, regardless of the number of points on your record. Once again, these are in addition to the various other penalties that may apply.
