Traffic Violation Attorneys in West New York, NJ
When individuals are issued traffic tickets, many people think their only option is to admit guilt and pay the fines. In reality, that’s rarely the best choice. New Jersey has a point system, and each time a charge goes on your driving record, you can be assessed points. If you receive enough points, you can have your license suspended. Rather than paying the fines and accepting the points against your license, you can work with an experienced lawyer who can fight to have the charges reduced or dropped, or to have the punishments mitigated. If you need a legal team with a track record of success, contact Greenberg & Walden, LLC today.
New Jersey Municipal Court System
The Municipal Courts of New Jersey handle cases that occur within the boundaries of their municipality. Greenberg & Walden, LLC handles a variety of traffic offenses, including the following:
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Driving without insurance
- Reckless driving
- Speeding cases
If you are stopped for driving on a suspended license, it is important to know the basis for that suspension. In New Jersey, people can have their licenses suspended for a number of reasons, such as failing to pay child support, accumulating 12 or more points from the MVC for moving violations, and failure to appear at a scheduled court hearing for a violation of a municipal ordinance. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you determine whether the suspension was justified, whether you received adequate notice of the suspension, and can help you avoid expensive fines or possible imprisonment for driving on a suspended license.
Speeding violations are some of the most common matters that are handled in municipal court. If you have been issued a speeding ticket in New Jersey, you should be aware of the consequences you may face. For the most part, the penalties associated with speeding have to do with how many miles per hour above the speed limit you were driving. However, the court may also take into consideration any previous driving infractions on your record. The points system in New Jersey is as follows:
- Speeding 1-14 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 2-point violation
- Speeding 15-30 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 4-point violation
- Speeding more than 30 miles per hour over the speed limit is a 5-point violation and may also result in a reckless driving ticket
