Q: Should I fight an overnight truck parking ticket in Bloomfield,NJ.

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for New Jersey on
Answered on Jan 20, 2018

IN NJ mistake on the tickets are mostly clerical errors such as you got and would not dismiss the ticket. As for can you fight the ticket sure, but the law states no trucks overnight, its no trucks over night thus you can't park it in the town and will have to park it in a paid lot as most towns have the same ordinance.

Too many factors to list need to be known to answer your question, but yes it is possible for a conviction not to be on his record, but an arrest already is, if he has been charged already. Since this is a criminal matter, I suggest you immediately hire a good criminal lawyer, because the more time an attorney has to work on a case, the better the result will generally be. Most of us criminal lawyer offer a free in office consultation, I suggest you set one up.
