Traffic violations, such as speeding, failing to yield to a pedestrian, running a stop sign and careless driving, may appear minor, but don’t act too quickly. Paying the ticket isn’t always the best solution. Points assessed against your license may remain on your driving record for many years, adversely affecting your insurance rates, and possibly your right to drive. Before you know it, a few “minor” violations can add up to a major problem. Our Municipal Traffic Court Lawyers at the law offices of Jonathan F. Marshall have extensive experience helping Newark, New Jersey and other Essex County residents get points reduced for traffic violations, and often having their tickets completely dismissed.

Traffic Tickets in Newark, NJ

Car insurance companies levy points against New Jersey drivers, and they use these points over a prior three-year period to establish the premium you will pay. If you receive too many, you may be unable to purchase auto insurance on the free market. Instead, you will need to go to the New Jersey Personal Automobile Insurance Plan, which costs a great deal more. At 6 or more points, within three years, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission will assess a $250 surcharge against you, $25 for each point above 6, plus fines for the violation itself, The MVC will suspend your license at 12 points, and a judge may suspend your driving privileges as well.
