NJ Attorney Protecting Driving Records in Hudson and Bergen Counties
Traffic fines in New Jersey are expensive, and can be doubled under some circumstances, such as if you’re ticketed for speeding in a New Jersey Safe Corridor Area or Construction Zone.
When you receive a speeding ticket in New Jersey, it might not only cost you a fine but also increase your insurance rates. It could also lead to the loss of your driver’s license.
You may be able to avoid these consequences by pleading not guilty, requesting a trial, and getting the help of the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. Our attorneys are experienced in defending cases of speeding and other traffic violations in New Jersey.
If you simply pay a ticket, you’re admitting to your guilt. In addition to the fine, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will penalize you by adding points to your driving record. Accumulating points can lead to a surcharge and to the suspension of your driving privileges. Failure to pay a surcharge can lead to a lien on your property or garnishment of your wages.
Many people who receive a speeding ticket think they have no real choice other than simply to pay the fine and accept increased insurance rates. However, with the help of a skilled attorney you may be able to get the case against you dismissed, or at least reduce the number of points added to your driving record.
Even if you believe you may actually have been exceeding the speed limit when you were pulled over, you may have a defense. Whether your speed was measured by radar or by laser, the attorney can question whether the device was calibrated properly, whether the police officer using the device was properly trained and certified, whether the weather might have affected the readings, and whether the officer was too far from your vehicle to get an accurate reading.
