Common Traffic Violations
Were you pulled over for one of these common traffic violations? This can be extremely stressful and have you worried about paying hefty fines and getting points on your license. Here is how an attorney can help.
Common Traffic Violations | Cell Phone Violations
New Jersey has recently changed their rules on cell phones and has actually put in place a much more stringent, tiered penalty structure. They’ve increased the penalties on a first offense, they’ve increased the penalties on a second offense, and they’ve increased the penalties on third offenses. The amount that the fines have increased and also the potential of having your driving privileges suspended on a third offense has also come into play. It’s as much as 90 days suspension on a third offense.
What you also need to know is that an out of state conviction for driving while using a cell phone improperly can be imported and enhance your potential penalties. I’ve handled cases like this before and I recommend that you speak to me or some other attorney about this charge.
Common Traffic Violations | Speeding Charge
In the state of New Jersey, I handle a lot of speeding charges, a lot of speeding tickets or summons. I’ve been involved in some of the busiest courts in Burgen County, in Essex and Hudson County, and handled literally hundreds of thousands of speeding tickets. What people need to know about speeding tickets is that while it might be very easy to go into court and ask for a reduction, after a while you could start accumulating points on your license or using up your ability to plea bargain because you’ve used up your unsafe operation pleas.
Very often, the speeds are so high that prosecutors are recommending and actually suspending people’s driving privileges. While a speeding ticket sounds easy, certain ones, in certain towns especially, can be quite difficult to get the best results. I’ve had those results in many, many towns. Give me a call if you have a speeding ticket or need help with one of these common traffic violations. We offer free initial consultations.
