I was pulled over for speeding in Jersey as stated by the officer 19:9-1.2 .39 but ticketed for 3 other offenses 39:4-96, 19:9-1.3c, 39:4-88A. Two are payable the other two I have to appear in court. What would you recommend I do? Pay the two or just wait until my court date to see what happen also... Read more »
First you should hire a lawyer, as you do face up to 60 days in jail on that reckless driving ticket assuming it is a first offense and up to 90 days in jail if you have done this before. Also you face a probable suspension of your drivers license on the speeding ticket. That is why those tickets...Read more »
We would need to know much more information to answer your question properly and even if this is what you are originally charged as the complaint can be amended at any time. Basically it can be anything from up to 180 days in jail to 5 years in jail depending on the grade charged and if you have...Read more »
So, another officer there told me that officer gave me the wrong ticket, that I will get mailed the correct ticket. So, he took back the ticket and told I was free to go. I still haven’t receive anything in the mail. But I looked online at NJ tickets to check if I still had the ticket or a new... Read more »
Yes I would suggest that you get a good lawyer because the officer can ask the court to amend or re issue the ticket up to a certain time.. Most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer free in office consultation I suggest you start with that to learn how a lawyer can help you.
So I found out that someone got a license in my name and received tickets and other violations, I went to court to deal with this however the judge was ..well difficult. she told me I need to prove that it was not me driving at that time. These tickets go back to 1995. How am I suppose to prove I... Read more »
We're not allowed on this site to give you specific advice on how to win a case yourself. However what I can tell you is that this is the reason why people hire lawyers to try to win the case for them when they don't know how to do it themselves.
As long as you did not hold/touch your not guilty of the offense of using your cell phone. If you did touch it then it gets tricky. That being said if you only got a seat belt ticket instead, just pay it not worth fighting a ticket under $200.00 for most people.
Sounds like a great deal for you, but only your lawyer would be able to properly advise you. That being said we don't know you driving history and we don't know the facts of your case and if they even had cause to stop you so only your lawyer should be giving you the advise on what to do..
Me or my trailer. The driver gave my info paper by mistake and cop thinks it’s my vehicle and driver was driving a diferente vehicle so officer didn’t check registration towards correct vehicle now I got ticket for no reason all ticket info is incorrect wrong vehicle
Well that could actually be worse because now you allowed an unlicensed driver to drive your vehicle/trailer. Now I know you say it was not you or your trailer however that's something that the judge is going to start wondering. How did he get that registration paper or were the two of you...Read more »
First for a suspended license or registration ticket you don't need to actually be driving to get the ticket, its the ability to drive, thus if you were in the car with the ignition off, but the keys were in the ignition courts assume this is driving. That being said it does not sound like...Read more »
He was given 3 registrations at same time because it was in wallet and all attached and he wrote chose wrong one and didn’t verify with my vehicle and paper and wrote wrong info and address and license number for someone else So is this acceptable
I did get three additional tickets. They are administrative. If it was a non-legal traffic stop does that mean the other tickets are inadmissible? When I asked the officer why I was being pulled over he did in fact say it was for reversing. And the ticket that he gave me for that was obstructing... Read more »
An off duty officer cut me off, i maintained my speed next thing i know I'm getting pulled over. Apparently it was the chief of police and he had someone come who didn't even see what happened to give me a ticket.
The witness for the state would be the off-duty police officer. In New Jersey A police officer doesn't need to see the violation himself to issue a ticket. This is a Five Point ticket so I would suggest that you get a good lawyer as it will increase your insurance rates a small fortune. Most...Read more »
Sure you can be charged with it, the question is how long was it their and did it have plates and valid insurance and registration which can also change the answer. Speak with a lawyer if you want to fight it but expect to pay that lawyer for his time and advise.
You can always ask the judge for credit, but the judge is not supposed to give you credit for one offense when your serving for another unless they arise together. Speak with a lawyer but expect to pay that lawyer for their time and advise.
