Charges in Summit NJ
Appearing at the Summit Municipal Court is usually a result of a DWI violation, Marijuana possession, traffic violation, or one of a litany of other criminal or traffic violations. Municipal courts, Summit included, have a limited jurisdiction to hear only certain cases, the above mentioned types of charges included. The criminal charges we are referring to are those which fall within the category of disorderly persons offenses. Since most violations of law falling within this grade, the Summit Municipal Court is busy with a wide range of criminal cases almost each court session. With a propensity for considerable consumer traffic, it is no surprise that Summit also has more than its share of traffic tickets and violations. With Route 24 running through the eastern portion, Interstate 78 at the south, and Routes 14 and 512 running elsewhere through the City, the high number of motor vehicle summonses handled in Summit is understandable.
