Mountainside Traffic Charges
Whether it is Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Speeding, Blocking Traffic, Driving With A Suspended License, Driving Without Insurance, or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), the Marshall Firm attorneys have the background and know-how to help you minimize the penalties or even get the ticket dismissed entirely. Let’s discuss some of the more common traffic offenses in your area.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). As you can see from the examples above, Mountainside is no stranger to DWI offenses. When it comes to a DWI charge, The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall give you a special edge some other attorneys can’t. Our attorneys have training in police procedures involving driving under the influence. Indeed, our attorneys oftentimes know more about the sobriety tests at issue than the prosecutor on your DWI case does.
Even though DWI is not considered a criminal offense in this State, the penalties can still be quite serious. You could have your license suspended for up to 1 year for a first offense. The suspension could be 2 years for a second offense, and 10 years for a third offense. In addition, a third DWI conviction means the judge must impose a jail sentence.
Driving Without Insurance. Every New Jersey driver is required to have auto insurance in order to drive a vehicle registered in this State. Because of that important requirement, the offense of Driving Without Insurance carries harsh penalties. New Jersey statute N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2 sets forth the law regarding Driving without Insurance. A first violation will result in a mandatory 1-year suspension of your license, a fine of $300 or more, community service, and motor vehicle surcharges. A second offense carries with it a 2-year suspension of your license, a possible $5,000 fine and mandatory jail time. That is why you would do well to get legal advice from a Marshall Firm traffic ticket attorney before appearing in Mountainside Municipal Court or the Union County Courthouse.
