Speeding is certainly the most common variety of traffic offense in Spotswood. A conviction for violating 39:4-98 results in not only fines but also points on your license, including 2 points for 1-14 MPH over the limit, 4 points for 15-29 MPH over the limit and 5 points for 30 MPH or more over the limit. The four most common traffic violations in Spotswood after a speeding ticket are driving while suspended, driving without insurance, careless driving and reckless driving. The headings below outline the important aspects of these Spotswood traffic charges.
Driving While License Suspended or Revoked – N.J.S.A. 39-3-40. In New Jersey, a person cannot drive after his or her driving privileges have been suspended. A conviction for this offense could result in a $500 fine and an additional six-month suspension of license (on top of your original suspension). A second offense will result in a mandatory one to five days in jail and a $750 fine. A third offense will result in a mandatory 10 days in jail and $1000 fine. Further penalties may result if the reason for the suspension was due to a DWI. When it comes to a driving while suspended charge, you should not do it alone. You need an experienced traffic attorney.
Driving Without Insurance – N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2. Knowingly operating a more vehicle without insurance is a serious traffic violation. For a first offense, you face a mandatory driver’s license suspension of one year. A second or subsequent offense results in a two year revocation of your license and 14 days in jail. In addition to these penalties for driving without insurance, a conviction in Spotswood Municipal Court for this motor vehicle charge results in significant fines and surcharges.
Reckless and Careless Driving – N.J.S.A. 39:4-96, and -97. Both offenses make it illegal to drive without appropriate caution on the road. Specifically, reckless driving is driving “heedlessly, in willful or wanton disregard of the rights or safety of others, in a manner so as to endanger . . . a person or property.” N.J.S.A. 39:4-96. A possible punishment of reckless driving is jail time, and jail time is mandatory for a second reckless driving conviction. It is important you have a lawyer by your side if you are charged with reckless driving. By contrast, careless driving is not as serious as reckless driving, and is defined as driving “without due caution and circumspection, in a manner so as to endanger . . . a person or property.” N.J.S.A. 39:4-97. Careless driving penalties include fines and 2 points against your license.
