Holmdel New Jersey Traffic Offense
There are many types of traffic offense cases that arise in Holmdel Township New Jersey. The charges that come up most frequently include:
- Driving While Suspended. This violation arises out of N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 and results in fines, surcharges and additional periods of suspension upon conviction. You should also know that jail is mandatory if your are convicted of a third or subsequent driving while suspended.
- Speeding. Speeding is probably the most common traffic ticket issued in Holmdel. A conviction for speeding up to 14 MPH over the limit results in 2 points, 15-24 MPH over the limit results in 4 points and 30 MPH or over carries 5 points.
- Driving Without Insurance. Driving without insurance in violation of N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2 carries severe penalties that include a 1 year license suspension for a first offense and 2 year revocation for a second or subsequent offense. The jail term for a second or subsequent conviction is 14-30 days.
- Driving While Intoxicated (“DWI”). A summons for driving while intoxicated, also referred to as driving under the influence, exposes you to significant penalties under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. For information on this subject, referring to our Holmdel DWI Lawyer page.
- Reckless Driving. A conviction for reckless driving under N.J.S.A. 39:4-96 note only triggers 5 points on your license but also the possibility of a license suspension.
- Possession of CDS in a Motor Vehicle. As surprising as it sounds, possession of cds in a motor vehicle under 39:4-49.1 results in a longer suspension for a first offense than DWI. There is a 2 year mandatory revocation of driving privileges upon conviction for possessing drugs in a car or other motor vehicle.
In addition to the penalties previously set forth, someone convicted of a moving traffic offense is also exposed to administrative sanctions from the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. For example, an accumulation of 12 or more points on your license results in a suspension of your privileges. There are also surcharges that are imposed by DMV for certain violations and also once a motorist accumulates 6 or more points on his/her license. You should also be aware that most insurance companies will increase their premium in the event of conviction for a Holmdel moving traffic violation.
