You definately can speak to the prosecutor and even the Judge. They may reduce or give less of a fine. I always urge clients to hire local counsel as it may work in your favor as well

Q: If I get a speeding ticket in another state how many points will I get in NJ

I got a speeding ticket in Virginia, but I have a New Jersey License. I read a couple things that said the points will be transferred based on home state. So I was trying to figure out if it is just 2 points or the full 6 points that Virginia will give me.

Stuart Nachbar
Stuart Nachbar answered on Aug 2, 2021

As Virginia is part of the Motor Vehicle Compact (meaning reciprocal) you probably will get the full 6 points. Find an attorney to represent you in Virginia and get the points reduced if possible

Q: Someone hit my car and leave, but a person that saw the accident leave a note for me with the car description.

Can I use a anonymous note as a proof?

Stuart Nachbar
Stuart Nachbar answered on Dec 31, 2020

I recommend that you file a Police Report and give the Police the note and let them decide what to do in terms of charging the person (driver). The unknown driver could be liable for the damages to your car as well as leaving the scene of an accident.
