traffic violations in south jersey

Whether you are a resident of the state of New Jersey or are simply passing through the state, getting a traffic ticket is a very real possibility. The officers in the state have been tasked with aggressively pursuing those who violate traffic laws, and getting a ticket can have significant consequences, especially if you are found guilty. Though many people are tempted to simply sign the back of the ticket, submit the fees and move on, few realize that doing so is the same as standing up in court and pleading guilty. This means that you can find yourself with motor vehicle points added to your driving record, increased insurance rates, license suspension and even possible jail time depending on the severity of the charge against you. Though people tend to think that seeking legal representation for a traffic violation is expensive, it can end up being the smartest and most cost-effective strategy. The attorneys at Reinherz & Reinherz Law Offices have a successful record of defending those who have been charged with traffic violations in South Jersey, limiting the penalties against them and in many cases getting charges completely dropped.

The list of charges that an officer can make against a driver in New Jersey seems endless, but the most common traffic violations in South Jersey that we have defended our clients against include:

  • Careless driving
  • Cell phone use while driving
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving without Insurance
  • Drunk driving (DWI/DUI/Operating Under the Influence)
  • Failure to maintain lanes
  • Failure to observe a traffic signal
  • Failure to report an accident
  • Failure to yield and stop at a stop sign
  • Improper passing
  • Improper turns
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Open alcohol container
  • Operating a vehicle with drugs in the car

  • Under-Age Drunk driving
  • Unsafe operation

If you are an out-of-state driver who has received a traffic ticket, it is important for you to know that you cannot simply ignore the ticket: your state’s motor vehicle agency will receive notification of your violation, and this can have the same impact on your points and your insurance premium as if the violation took place in your own state. This can mean hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in additional fees, as well as the fees that you have to pay to the state of New Jersey.  Though drivers located in the nearby states of Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New York may be required to appear in court in order to defend against a traffic charge, those located in other states can often have us represent them without needing to appear personally.
