Everyone knows that offenses like speeding and reckless driving are illegal. However, New Jersey traffic laws place a limit on a number of additional driving behaviors and car modifications. Some of these include:
Red light/stop sign infractions
Hit and runs
Driving without insurance or an expired license
Additionally, New Jersey has a basic speed law that requires drivers to slow down when they experience issues like traffic, pedestrians, or inclement weather regardless of the speed limit. State law also identifies a number of presumed speed limits. For example, all drivers need to reduce their speed to 25 miles per hour in school zones.
With so many specific traffic laws, it’s difficult for someone to fight a ticket on their own. If you need to fight a ticket in court, attorney Friedman can help. His experience dealing with criminal cases like drug crimes or DUIs gives him a fearsome demeanor in court. He also has a network of professional connections within various local court systems. He can leverage these connections to help clients receive reduced penalties for their offenses. Instead of trying to represent yourself in court, trust attorney Friedman to be your traffic lawyer.
Penalties for traffic violations can vary greatly depending on the offense. For example, a speeding ticket can earn the offender fines ranging from $50 to $200. However, in many traffic cases, fines aren’t the issue. Instead, the offender needs to worry about accumulating points on their drivers’ license. In New Jersey, the DMV can revoke someone’s driving privileges if they accumulate too many points within a certain span of time. The duration of a suspension can range from 30 days to six months. Common offenses include:
Improper passing – 4 points
Racing – 5 points
Hit and run with injuries involved – 8 points
Driving more than 30 miles over the speed limit – 5 points
Acquiring even 12 points within a two-year period can result in license suspension. However, an attorney can help you dispute your charges in traffic court. This can frequently result in decreased penalties or complete dismissal of your case. Because of this, it’s always a good idea to hire a lawyer to help you fight any traffic violations.
