Q: My bf was pulled over when he passed a double yellow line but he passed it because someone was double parked
How can I fight this in or court or what should I bring to the courts attention
A: You need to tell the judge exactly what you told us, but technically you are never supposed to cross that line. You may want to hire a lawyer to make sure you get the best defense most of us offer free in office consultations.
A: Your attorney will need to know what kind of ticket he actualy received. In NJ, moving violations are traffic infractions (even reckless driving), and Newark Municipal Court is a citizen friendly court. Your prosecutor is likely to reduce the charge to a lesser one, depending on the curcumstances. Fighting vs. negotiating a pela will depend on your poriority in your current life situation.
