Rahway Traffic Offense
A driver’s license is a privilege and not a right in this state. A condition of maintaining this privilege is obeying the New Jersey Traffic Laws. When someone commits a moving violation, they are fined, assigned motor vehicle points and are exposed to other penalties in order to promote compliance. Collateral consequences include rapidly escalating insurance rates, payment of insurance surcharges for 4 or more points and the possibility of an administrative license suspension when you accumulate 12 or more points. The more common traffic charges in Rahway that can result in ramifications such as these are:
- Reckless driving
- Driving while suspended
- Driving without insurance
- Possession of CDS in a motor vehicle
- Leaving the scene of an accident
If you were issued one of these charges or another Rahway traffic ticket, it is important that you do your very best to escape a conviction. This is particularly true when facing a motor vehicle violation that can result in a suspension of your privileges to drive. For example, reckless driving or speeding at a rate of 95 M.P.H. or more result can result in a suspension of your driver’s license in the discretion of the municipal court judge in Rahway. A mandatory suspension of 2 years results from possession of CDS in a motor vehicle, one year for driving without insurance and up to six months for driving while suspended. The period of suspension for DWI hinges on the BAC at the time of the offense.
