The answer is it depends. In general if you hire a lawyer you may be able to avoid having to appear in court. However, that rule changes when you have a mandatory court appearance ticket. In that case a lawyer will need to convince the judge you don't need to come. And in cases such as DWI... Read more »

Yes. NJ law is that pedestrians must cross in crosswalks (if present) and if not present at nearest corner, otherwise it is jaywalking. Traffic present is not an issue

H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.

The ticket would generally be lawful, but of course that is up to the judge if you had taken the case to court since the standard is so low most tickets end in a conviction.

Q: A few months ago, I received a ticket for not stopping for stop sign. However, I know I stop. My case is tomorrow.

I asked for the video and it only show me the police stopping me and does not show me and the stop sign.

H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq. answered on Jan 13, 2020

Unfortunately that's the way most videos work they don't start until the officer turns on his lights which is generally after the violation has occurred. If they video to everything it would be almost impossible to store all the data at a reasonable cost

First it is a public record when you get a ticket. Second you don't need to be pulled over to get a ticket they can be mailed to you. Thus I suggest you call the court in the morning and see if they mailed you a ticket and if so hire one if us lawyer's.
