A Camden County traffic violation probably doesn’t sound like a big deal. And in many cases it isn’t. But if you already have a number of violations on your driving record, or you were involved in a more serious offense, like leaving the scene of an accident or driving under suspension, the penalties you are facing may be more severe than you think. Our attorneys at JFM Criminal Defense Firm can help you with your traffic violation charges and minimize the potential consequences.
Traffic Violations Law in Camden County, New Jersey
Most traffic violations are handled in the Municipal Court of the city where you received your citation. Traffic violations are identified as either non-moving or moving violations. Speeding is a common moving violation, which can result in a 2 to 5 point assessment against your driver’s license. The accrual of points can ultimately lead to license suspension. If you accumulate 12 points against your license in two years, the Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator will suspend your license between 30 and 180 days. Over a period longer than two years, 15 points will do it. Though there are ways to offset this. Fees and surcharges are other common consequences of a traffic violation, and typically range between $50 and $500. Multiple traffic offenses can also lead to expensive insurance premiums or even loss of coverage. More serious violations also carry a potential jail term penalty.
