Traffic Ticket in East Windsor Township
Title 39 contains all of the traffic regulations of the State of New Jersey. When a police officer possesses reasonable suspicion that one of these laws has been violated, you can expect a traffic summons/ticket to be issued. These charges span a wide range in terms of gravity of misconduct and penalties. The headings below explore some of the more common motor vehicle offenses heard in East Windsor Township.
Driving While Suspended. There is no such thing as a “hardship license” in New Jersey. When a driver’s license is suspended, he or she cannot operate a motor vehicle under any circumstance and faces penalties that include additional suspension and even jail under certain circumstances (e.g. second or subsequent violation, suspended for DWI, etc.).
Driving Without Insurance. All drivers in New Jersey must have valid automobile insurance. Driving without insurance is an offense punishable by fines, community service, and suspension of the offender’s license.
Speeding. Driving faster than the posted speed limit is a violation that can result in fines, surcharges, and points on the offender’s driver’s license. An accumulation of 12 or more points results in an administrative suspension of driving privileges.
Careless Driving. Careless driving is the act of disregarding proper driving procedures to the point of potentially creating a safety hazard.
Reckless Driving. Reckless driving is defined as driving with a wanton disregard for the safety of others. The judge in East Windsor often imposes a license suspension for those convicted of violating 39:4-96.
Leaving the Scene of an Accident. After an accident that results in a victim’s injury or death, all parties must remain at the scene until law enforcement arrives. Following a collision that results in damage to a parked car, the responsible party should either remain at the scene until the car’s owner arrives or leave a note with his or her contact information. Leaving the scene of an accident can have criminal penalties.
