Fines, Points, Surcharges, and Other Penalties Our Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ Can Protect You Against

Depending on your driving history and the nature of your charges, you can face fines of between $25 for, for example, careless driving (governed by NJ Rev Stat § 39:4-97 (2019)), up to several thousands of dollars for more serious violations, such as leaving the scene of an accident. Here are some of the most common violations, as well as more serious violations and their associated fines.

  • Racing on a highway: Between $25 and $200
  • Unsafe lane changes: Between $50 and $200
  • Improper passing: Between $50 and $200
  • Careless driving: Between $50 and $200
  • Tailgating: Between $50 and $200
  • Reckless driving: Between $50 and $500
  • Speeding: Between $85 and $260
  • DWI/DUI: Up to $1,000
  • Leaving the scene of an accident: Up to $15,000

In addition to the above, even if you want to challenge your New Jersey traffic ticket, you will have to pay court costs of $34 and you may face auto insurance rate hikes that range, on average, between 17% and over 130% for different traffic violations, as well as surcharges for accruing too many points.

Protect your driving record and minimize the impact of traffic violations – consult Agre & St. John’s skilled attorneys for experienced legal representation and strategic defense. Call 856-454-8674 or fill out our online contact form for a consultation.

Other common violations include operating an uninsured vehicle, driving with a suspended license, having a first or second DWI charge, and refusing to take a blood alcohol concentration test.

For license suspensions based on points, you can lose your driving privileges for significant periods if you have too many violations within a certain period. The official periods are as below:

  • Between 12 and 15 points: 30 days
  • Between 16 and 18 points: 60 days
  • Between 19 and 21 points: 90 days
  • Between 22 and 24 points: 120 days
  • Between 25 and 27 points: 150 days
  • 28 or more points: 180+ days

Losing your driving privileges for this long can seriously impact your ability to get around, get to and from work, and provide for your family. It can also be costly or very time-consuming if you have to resort to, for example, ridesharing services such as Uber or Lyft or public transportation. The good news, however, is that 3 points come off of your driving record for every year that you go without being convicted of a new traffic violation. You can also have points removed by taking the Motor Vehicle Commission-approved defensive driving course, though this can only be done once every five years.

Representing Yourself vs. Working with Our New Jersey Traffic Violation Attorneys

Many people make the mistake of thinking that they can contest or challenge and defend themselves against a traffic ticket on their own. Although doing so may look straightforward, things are much more complex than meets the eye. The prosecution will likely have extensive experience with traffic violators, and standing toe to toe with experienced legal personnel trained to prosecute violators more likely than not leads to convictions. Instead of leaving things to chance, have our traffic ticket defense lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ represent you. We will gather evidence, handle courtroom deliberations, and will fight so that your violations are dismissed or the charges you face are dropped so that you can continue to enjoy your driving privileges without restrictions or penalties.

Don’t let a traffic violation jeopardize your driving privileges – contact Agre & St. John’s knowledgeable legal team to challenge charges, reduce penalties, and safeguard your license.

Courtroom Appearances and Failing to Appear for Traffic Tickets in New Jersey

If you have been ticketed for a traffic offense in New Jersey, look at the left-hand side of your ticket for a box that says “Court Appearance Required.” If that box is checked, you must appear in court on the specific date at the designated location. This means simply paying for your ticket will not suffice. In such cases, hiring an attorney to accompany you is highly recommended. If you fail to respond to a traffic ticket or you miss your court date, you can face harsh consequences that can include arrest.
