Penalties for Traffic Violations in New Jersey 

New Jersey employs a point system. The point system involves points being marked against a person’s driving record. The number of points that are designated to the person’s driving history depends on the severity of their offenses. For example, you will receive 2 points for reckless driving and 5 points for speeding. Many drivers are familiar with the points and the violations that correspond to them.

New Jersey drivers also adhere to what is known as an Insurance points system. This point system is similar to the traffic points system. Unlike the traffic violation point system, it is not easy to figure out how the points are decided. This is because different insurance companies have different systems. It is also important to note that insurance points cannot result in the suspension of your driving privileges, imprisonment or any other such punishment. They however do result in higher insurance rates. It is important to note that this situation is often irreversible. Once your insurance rates rise as a result of accumulated points they will never become lower. This is true even if you improve your course. It is, therefore, best to avoid situations that would result in the accumulation of points such as being convicted of traffic violations. 

The point system can result in your license being system if you accumulate 12 or more points. Therefore, it is important to take note of even those small traffic violations that many people take for granted. The accumulation of points from tickets can result in the loss of your freedom to drive. 

It is important to do all you can to avoid accumulating points. An experienced and skilled New Jersey traffic violation lawyer will defend you and help to get the best possible outcome for your case. They will help you minimize the penalties associated with the traffic violation you are being charged with.

Frequently Asked Questions about Traffic Violations in New Jersey

What happens if I leave the scene of a motor vehicle accident?

The law requires that all motor vehicle accidents be reported to the local police department. This means that you should not leave the scene of the accident until you have been released to do so. Failure to do so will result in severe penalties. 

If this is your first offense, you will be required to pay fines of between $200 and $400. You may also be required to serve a 40-day jail term and have your driver’s license suspended for 6 months. If the accident resulted in injury, you will have your license suspended for up to 1 year, pay fines of between $2500 and $5000 and serve up to 180 days in prison. 

If this is not your first offense, you will face fines of between $400 and $600, a 1 year suspension on your driver’s license, and imprisonment of between 30 and 90 days.

Should I represent myself for a traffic offense?

Many people take traffic offenses lightly. However, the consequences of these offenses are harsh and often have long-term effects. While you may represent yourself when charged with a traffic offense, it is not advisable. Navigating traffic offenses can be complicated. It helps to have an experienced New Jersey traffic violations lawyer representing you. Hiring an experienced lawyer will greatly improve the outcome of your case.
