Sea Bright NJ Traffic & Motor Vehicle Charges
At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall we defend clients in Monmouth County who have been charged with a variety of traffic offenses and moving violations, including but not limited to:
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving While Suspended
- Driving Without Insurance
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident
- Reckless Driving
- Careless Driving
It is important to understand the consequence of a traffic ticket conviction. For starters, there is a monetary penalty in the form of a set fine payable to the Sea Bright Municipal Court if you plead or are found guilty. In addition to the set fine, there is also the possibility of having points imposed on your driving record by the New Jersey DMV. The more serious your traffic offense, the higher the number of points the DMV will assess against your license. If you accumulate 12 or more points within a 2-year period, your license may be suspended.
The final consideration is whether a conviction for a traffic offense will increase your insurance premiums. Typically, if you have an otherwise clean driving record, a one-time traffic conviction will not usually increase your insurance premiums. However, the more convictions you have on your license and the more you have for things like speeding, the more likely your insurance provider will increase your premiums by as little as 15% or more.
It is ultimately up to you to decide if you want to fight a traffic ticket, but it is always beneficial to speak with an experienced traffic ticket lawyer to see if it’s possible to have the ticket dismissed or, at the very least, reduced to something with less of a monetary fine, or that may result in fewer points assessed against your license, and/or that will be less likely to cause your insurance premiums to increase.
