Traffic Violations Surcharges or Suspended License

If you acquire six or more points on your driving record within three years, you will subject to a surcharge of $150 and $25 for each subsequent point. Accumulating 12 or more points on your driving record will result in the suspension of your driver’s license. Suspension of your license can also be a result of willful violation of NJSA 39:1-1 to NJSA 39:5G-2. Three points will be subtracted from your total for each year you go without a traffic violation or a license suspension. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.

Failure to Observe Road Signals.

New Jersey law states that every driver, motorman, and pedestrian shall obey any official traffic control device unless otherwise directed by an officer. If a traffic control signal is malfunctioning or not illuminated, drivers must still follow requirements for a stop intersection with respect to other traffic laws. Fines for failing to observe a traffic signal range from $85 to $140 if violation occurs in a construction zone. Municipal courts can fine you from $50 to $200 and/or imprison you in state prison for up tp 15 days. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.

Fines and Other Penalties of Speeding Tickets

Speeding ticket fines depend on how fast you were going and whether you were in a safe corridor or construction zone. Exceeding the speed limit by 1-19 miles will result in fines ranging from $85-$105, and exceeding the limit by 20-39 miles will result in fines ranging from $200-$260. A court appearance is required for exceeding the speed limit by 40 mph or more. Points will also be added to your driving record. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.

Leaving the Scene of an Injury Accident

New Jersey law states that any driver knowingly involved in an accident resulting in the injury or death of a person shall stop the vehicle, give his or her name and address, and exhibit his license and registration to the person injured and any police officer present. It will be inferred that a driver who gets in an accident resulting in injury, death, or more than $250 in damage to any vehicle or property is aware of the accident. Fines for violations of the aforementioned law range from $2,500 to $5,000, and one can be imprisoned for 180 days. One offense will result in loss of license for a year, and second offense will result in the loss of right to drive in NJ permanently. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.

Careless Driving

Careless driving in New Jersey is defined by the intent of the driver; if one acts in a manner that endangers a person or property unintentionally. A driver who is momentarily distracted by something and gets in a crash as a result did not mean to drive unsafely but did so nonetheless. A person convicted or pleading guilty to careless driving will be fined $85, and two points will be placed on his or her driving record. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving involves someone driving in a manner that endangers a person or property intentionally, therefore penalties are much harsher than those for careless driving. First offense can result results in up to 60 days of imprisonment and/or fines between $50 to $200. A second offense will result in imprisonment up to 3 months and/or fines between $100 to $500. Five points will also be added to one’s driving record for either offense. If you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf, Edward Ameri, Esq. is prepared to do just that.
