If a ticket has a court date it is not a warning. I suggest a lawyer as the penalties for these tickets especially the no insurance ticket is very severe. Unfortunately you are required to show the officer your insurance proof when he arrives at your window, he/she does not need to wait for you...Read more »
"Every motor vehicle registered in this State which is used over any public road, street, or highway or any public or quasi-public property" it says I have to use the vehicle, but it was parked and not in use.
My daughter got a summons and has to appear in court in 2 weeks in South Hackensack, NJ. She was on her lunch break and trying to find a Chipotle. Tapped her GPS on her phone which was affixed to the dashboard, so hands-free. She was coming to a stop at a light when she did this. Not sure if it... Read more »
The answer is Maybe the law states that you may turn on or off a function are they following so it would depend on what she was doing and what the officer believe that she's doing. If it's a third offense definitely hire a lawyer if it's a 1st or 2nd it's cheaper to pay it
I was trying to avoid 2 points for the speed ticket that was $85. They reduced it to unsafe driving I pleaded guilty for. I ended up paying $439 that included a $250 surcharge. I don’t have any points in the prior 3 years and no ticket. Can the court/prosecutor do this? Just trying to see if I... Read more »

You are not immune from prosecution just yet. You will need to appear in court and attempt to resolve this summons. Since the car was a rental, the rental service should be able to provide you proof of insurance and registration of the vehicle. This evidence may be shown to the municipal court...Read more »

The simple answer is the officer did give you a break as you could have gotten a ticket for obstructing traffic even if no traffic existed. You're not allowed to sit park or stand in a gridded area. Thank the cop pay the ticket and move on as they do not need to give you a chance to move your car.
Yes you can have both suspended and be convicted on both as they are separate, one is the license for your car and the other is the license for you. They are considered separate but have the same penalties for each offense. Get a lawyer as you face the loss of your license and even possible jail...Read more »

It means that your subject to the following penalties for fictitious number shall be subject to a fine not exceeding $500.00 or imprisonment in the county jail for not more than 60 days. Thus I suggest hiring a lawyer

You're looking at a 302 $500 fine one-year loss of your driver's license and Community Service as determined by the court. Get yourself a good lawyer and insurance now on the car and you may be able to avoid this. Don't get a good lawyer and you may not be driving for the next year.
the office put my car type as BUS, when i have a SUV. Is there anyway i could get this dismissed because of the mistake and because i have a clean driving record, as well as i plan to do online defensive driver course to show alj
Unfortunately this will be considered a clerical error and will not lead to a dismissal in the majority of cases unless you had a trial and the cop insisted that you drove a bus. Your best bet is to hire a good lawyer to eliminate the points for you, most of us offer free in office consultations,...Read more »
