Sayreville Traffic Lawyer
Charged With Speeding, Driving While Suspended, Driving Without Insurance, Reckless Driving & Other Another Traffic Offense in Sayreville New Jersey
Although a traffic offense is not criminal, the Sayreville Municipal Court has the ability to impose penalties that can be severe depending on the motor vehicle charge.
Most moving violations also carry motor vehicle points that can result surcharges, increased insurance rates and even an administrative suspension of your license.
Rather than simply accepting a traffic ticket and paying the fine, it is almost always smarter to enlist an experienced traffic offense lawyer to defend the offense so that consequences of a conviction can be avoided.
The cost of hiring an attorney can be significantly less than the monetary consequences that you will face if your are ultimately convicted.

Traffic Offense in Sayreville New Jersey
Our law firm represents clients who have been issued traffic tickets while driving on roadways in the Borough of Sayreville such as U.S Route 9, NJ Route 35 and the Garden State Parkway. We defend clients against all types of traffic charges, including the following:
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving While Suspended
- Driving Without Insurance
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident
- Reckless Driving
- Possession of CDS in a Motor Vehicle
The penalties and consequences of these and motor vehicle offenses can also result in a suspension of your driving privileges. While you might think this is limited to DWI but there are certainly far more traffic violations in Sayreville that result in a revocation of your license. Driving without insurance (uninsured vehicle) results in one year suspension, there is up to six months revocation for driving while suspended and leaving the scene of an accident and possession of CDS in a motor vehicle is two years.
If you are unsuccessful in defending your Sayreville traffic offense, you will also face the ramifications of points being assigned to your license by the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles. An accumulation of 6 or more points triggers an obligation to pay a surcharge in order to keep your privileges in good standing. The amount of the surcharge goes with every additional point accumulated. When a motorist reaches 12 points, their license is administratively suspended.
There are also some violations of the motor vehicle and traffic code that automatically result in a surcharge above and beyond those previously discussed if you lose your case in Sayreville Municipal Court. A conviction for driving with a suspended triggers an annual surcharge of $250 for a period of three years. The same is true for driving without insurance. The amount is even higher for DWI with an assessment of $1,000 to $1,500 per year depending on whether it is your first, second or third conviction.
