Newark, NJ asked in Traffic Tickets for New Jersey

Q: I have a third time moving violation, using my cell phone while driving. Will my license be suspended? NJ

I was trying to recalibrate my Google maps. Phone was being weird and just as I made the decision to pull over, I got pulled over. I cannot lose my license - I’ll take points and paying a fine but I don’t have the option to lose my license right now…

A: The judge always has the final say in what your sentence will be But you are facing with a 3rd or Greater Offense: Fine of Not Less than $600.00 or more than $800.00 plus up to 90 Days Drivers License Suspension and 3 Motor Vehicle Points. The key word is up to and thus the reason must people hire a lawyer to reduce this license suspension. Although it may be expensive to hire a lawyer for this type of ticket, the cost of losing your license for 90 days is generally much more, and if you still drive while you are suspended you are facing possible jail time, thus the reason you should hire a good lawyer. Most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer a free in office consultation. I would suggest that you set one up.
