Keeping Points Off Your New Jersey Driver’s License
In New Jersey, 12 or more points against your license will result in suspension. Considering the following values for various traffic violations, points can add up in a hurry:
- Speeding: two, four or five points, depending on how fast you were going
- Improper passing: four points
- Improper passing of a school bus: five points
- Racing on the highway: five points
- Tailgating: five points
- Reckless driving: five points
- Careless driving: two points
I defend clients against serious traffic violations such as driving while suspended and driving with no insurance, which carry harsh potential consequences, including driver’s license suspension and even possible jail time.
It is important to fight traffic tickets whenever possible, to keep these points off your driver’s license. I can represent you in contesting speeding tickets and other traffic tickets in New Jersey municipal courts as well as all matters before the Motor Vehicle Commission.
