Despite how harmless an East Orange, New Jersey, traffic ticket may sound, this is frequently not the case. Though you may be tempted to simply plead guilty and pay the fine or do a little community service, first consider the possible consequences of this hasty action. In addition to the cost outlay for the surcharges, fees and fines, many traffic violations result in the suspension of your driving privileges, more expensive insurance costs, and in some cases, a jail sentence. Don’t risk it. The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall are prepared to help you avoid these unwelcome consequences.

Traffic Tickets in Orange, N.J.

Some traffic tickets require no more than a visit to the local court website to pay your fine, while others entail an appearance in Municipal Court. Two such examples of the more serious offenses are hit and run and driving under revocation. A conviction for these offenses may send you to jail. However, even simple violations like speeding will result in the assessment of points against your license. These add up quickly and can lead to a license suspension.

About East Orange, New Jersey

The East Orange Police Department has been accused of working under traffic ticket quotas, which were outlawed by the New Jersey Legislature in 2000, when making many of its traffic stops. It’s unclear whether the high incidence of traffic citations is the result of a quota mentality or heavy police activity in an admittedly high crime area. Regardless, the end result is a great many tickets. The East Orange Municipal Court records identified more than 40,000 traffic summonses between August 2012 and April 2013. When indictable offenses are included, the number increases to 48,200.
