Garden State Parkway Traffic & Criminal Offenses
Woodbridge NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer
The longest highway in NJ, and possibly the busiest one in terms of motor vehicle traffic, is the Garden State Parkway. Many miles of this roadway travels through Middlesex County starting at Exit 120 and continuing all the way to Exit 131. Although troopers employed by the New Jersey State Police patrol this section of the Garden State Parkway, criminal complaints, tickets and summonses fall within the jurisdiction of the municipality where the offense allegedly occurred. If you were arrested and/or charged with a motor vehicle, DWI or criminal offense on the Garden State Parkway in Old Bridge, South Amboy, Sayreville, Woodbridge or Edison, our defense lawyers can assist you. Here at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we are the largest criminal defense team in the region, employ several former prosecutors and have been defending individuals like you for over 100 years between us. Call our Woodbridge Office at 732-634-0700 for a free initial consultation with a lawyer on our staff.
Traffic Offense on the Garden State Parkway, Edison NJ
It may be shocking but Edison Municipal Court handled over 25,000 moving traffic violations during the period from July 2012-June 2013, and the numbers were even higher for Woodbridge Municipal Court with over 45,000 careless driving, speeding, driving while suspended and other moving violations. Sayreville Municipal Court also ranked high with over 14,000 violations over this period. A major factor in the high number of these charges stems from the high traffic volume when the Garden State Parkway runs through these towns.
Criminal Arrest on the Parkway in Sayreville New Jersey
There are many times that a routine traffic stop on the Parkway can mushroom into something much more serious like an eluding charge, drug possession, or even a weapon offense. When someone is arrested in Woodbridge or another municipality along this roadway, there are several issues that require examination by an attorney. For example, was the stop valid in the first place, that is, was there a reasonable suspicion to believe that a traffic violation occurred? Even when this requirement has been satisfied, the police cannot arrest and individual or search a vehicle without probable cause to do so (much also have an exigency if we are talking about a warrantless search). The lawyers at our firm are highly experienced in challenging stops and/or searches, and are available, free of charge, to review the facts of your case 24/7.
