New Jersey Traffic Ticket Lawyers
Experienced Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyers Help Clients Keep a Clean Driving Record in Gloucester County, Camden County, and Burlington County
Traffic tickets are relatively common in New Jersey. Despite this, “common” should not be equated with “minor”. When you see flashing lights in your rear-view mirror, the sense of anxiety you likely feel is entirely justified. Traffic tickets are always expensive from a financial perspective, but if you accumulate 12 points on your driving record, you could even lose your license.
Hercules Law Group, LLC has over 20 years’ experience helping clients keep their driving records clean. The firm’s track record of successfully beating traffic tickets across New Jersey is unparalleled, with hundreds of satisfied clients who can testify to their positive experiences.
Although it might be tempting to pay the ticket and put it in the past, that is never really an option. Points from a traffic ticket remain on your record well after you’ve paid your fine—and for more serious traffic violations, court may be required. Fighting a traffic ticket can keep your car insurance premiums low and protect your driving privileges—whether now or in the future, if you ever get another ticket.
With Hercules Law Group, LLC, your first meeting with your lawyer is free. In your free initial consultation, an experienced traffic ticket defense lawyer will sit down with you and listen to what happened—and explain what the firm can do to help. Call or contact the firm to schedule your free case review today.
Hercules Law Group, LLC Handles All New Jersey Traffic Ticket Cases
New Jersey has a point system that applies to traffic tickets. Generally, a certain number of points are added to your driving record depending upon the severity of the violation. If you get too many points on your record, your driving privileges can be suspended.
Insurance companies also have access to your driving record and use it to measure how much risk you present. In other words, the more points you have on your record, the higher your car insurance premiums will be.
Hercules Law Group, LLC helps clients beat all types of traffic tickets, including:
- Speeding tickets
- Reckless driving
- Careless driving
- Driving without insurance
- Driving with a suspended license
- Leaving the scene of an accident that caused an injury
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Failure to yield
- Improper passing
- And more
Sometimes the police officer will cite you for multiple traffic violations in a single stop. The risk of accumulating a significant number of points on a single occasion makes it particularly important to fight every single traffic ticket you receive—even if the charge is only a two-point violation.
Traffic Tickets Carry Significant Penalties in NJ
In addition to points, traffic tickets assign financial penalties based upon the severity of the offense—which can quickly add up. For example, a $500 fine applies if you are cited for driving with a suspended license, along with a six-month extension of the suspension period. Additional penalties if you don’t fight the traffic ticket include:
- If you accumulate six or more points on your record within a three-year period, a points-based surcharge of $125 plus $25 for every point over six will apply for three years (for some violations, like DUI/DWI and refusing a breath test, the surcharges are higher and automatic)
- If you accumulate 12 points in less than two years, your driver’s license will be suspended for at least 30 days
- Increased car insurance premiums that can last for years
- Potential jail time in the most serious cases, such as leaving the scene of an accident
The good news is, points can come off your record—three points drop off for every single year you go without a traffic violation. Defensive driving courses can also help you get two points removed every five years.
However, by the time the points come off your record, the damage may already be done in terms of your car insurance rates. Hercules Law Group, LLC is here to help you take action and keep your record clean. Call today for a free case review to learn more about your options.
