Two issue. The first being is whether or not the landlord has posted the appropriate signage about improper parking. The second is whether the two lease spots are included in the lease. If so, you, you are entitled to quiet enjoyment. This places a burden on the Landlord's shoulders to monitor... Read more »

The ticket was careless driving. I hit a railing and my friend was injured. Now I am contacting my insurance company. I don't know what this hearing is about.

Unfortunately, Yes most courts will require a company to be represented by a lawyer in NJ. Most of us traffic tickets offer a free in office consultation where you can learn more.
I injured my back while riding my atv and had to call an ambulance to get to the hospital since i couldn't drive.

Yes they can charge you even up to a year later for criminal cases in Municipal Court. That being said I would suggest hiring a lawyer you may have a defense in this case. Most of us criminal lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I would suggest that you set one up.
Officer saw my good record and pleasantly came over and gave me 3 tickets for speeding. Unlawful operation and not obeying. Signs . He basically said I was speeding 3 different ways. After he complimented me for having no points
answered on Jan 3, 2023
It never hurts to ask but it probably won't be done without some type of proof, just getting 3 tickets for the same offense is not that uncommon these days as cops tend to write more tickets as everything today is videoed. You may want to request that video.
Pleasant interaction I had no points/ had all my credentials/ why so may tickets for the one offense. Then told me to plea not guilty in court and fight it. Why pleasantly give me 3 tickets to tell me to go plead guilty. Why give me so many tickets in the first place.
answered on Jan 1, 2023
Unlike in the past now that most interactions with police are recorded it is rare to get a warning and not a ticket if you committed the offense as they don't want to seem like they are giving one person and a ticket and not another. In your case if the officer has you on video violating 3... Read more »

It Depends, but in General, if you are charged with 39:4-197 a first offense is punishable with a fine of $250 and subsequent offense generally has a fine of at least $250 and up to 90 days of community service and you will generally get that community service in most courts.
answered on Dec 18, 2022
If your talking about what the fine is for39:4-138 its generally $55.00 plus court costs if any for payable tickets.

For many courts, they will only send court notices and other information to the address that NJ MVC has on record for you. So you need to update it with them that may be your problem.
I received a suspension which will begin on December 22nd for 110 days, but another suspension is set to begin for 150 days on January 1st, 2023. Does this mean they will happen at the same time?
answered on Dec 16, 2022
The best party to answer this question is either the court you got the suspensions in, the MVC or your lawyer who handled your suspension case as we do not know enough information to properly answer your question.
answered on Dec 13, 2022
We would need much more information to determine the answer to your question, please re-write and post, but it could be improper passing.
The trooper did not have his lights on and was pulled onto the shoulder and gave my son a ticket for failing to change lanes for emergency vehicle.

The impact depends on whether the ticket has a mandatory court appearance or if it has a pay by date on the ticket. If a pay by date on the ticket your looking at a fine and 2 points on your license and increased insurance costs. If it has a mandatory court appearance on the ticket your looking... Read more »

if you receive a warning in new jersey for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk will that increase your auto insurance rates. Not a ticket but a warning. I have a camera in my car and the video shows nothing except a cop waving to turn left. Can I contest this ?
answered on Nov 17, 2022
A ticket filed in the municipal court is required before direct and collateral consequences become an issue. If a police officer gives only a warning, then the court, motor vehicle commission, and insurance company should not find out about the encounter.
Can i get this ticket dismissed since none of the information identifies it was me. The person they put on the ticket owns the car but wasn’t driving. The tickets i got was for speeding and not providing insurance
answered on Nov 16, 2022
Generally you won't get it dismissed instead they will consider this a clerical error and re-issue the ticket under the correct information for you the driver. I suggest hiring a lawyer if your looking to get the best result for your case. Most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer a free in... Read more »
