About New Jersey Municipal Court Traffic Tickets
The severity of a traffic violation is often overlooked. But offenses like careless driving, fleeing the scene of an accident, driving without auto insurance, and evading a police officer are frequently more serious than they initially appear. Penalties may include fines up to $730, license revocation and incarceration in the County jail. If your case proceeds to court, your penalties will be determined by a judge. You may not request a jury trial in Municipal Court. Court penalties aren’t the only consequences you face. Car insurance companies assess points against you, as well. They use this system to determine your premium and with excessive violations, they may refuse to cover you, sending you to the more expensive New Jersey Personal Automobile Insurance Plan.
