Hopewell Township Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Practically everyone in Hopewell Township at some point or another has been issued a traffic ticket by law enforcement. While a summons for a motor vehicle offense often seems minor, the truth is that many tickets carry serious consequences, even the potential for a licenses suspension. And almost every moving traffic ticket results in points that can quickly place insurance into jeopardy and expose a motorist to surcharges. The Hopewell Township municipal court handles traffic and motor vehicle summonses issued within the town and an individual can easily be convicted of an offense absent a skilled attorney at their side. That is why it is so important for you to fight your traffic tickets with the help of an experienced traffic ticket defense lawyer. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall know how important your driving record is to you and will fight to get your charges dropped so points will not be added to your driving record for an unwarranted conviction.

Traffic violations are generally violations of the New Jersey Traffic Code that occur while a vehicle is in motion. One of the most common traffic violations is speeding. The severity of a speeding ticket is based on how fast you were going over the posted speed limit. A driver can also be ticketed for improperly operating their motor vehicle, which can mean that the driver was operating the vehicle carelessly (i.e., negligently) or recklessly (i.e., with no regard for their actions or the potential to cause harm to others with their actions). A careless driving charge is a lesser-included of reckless driving, and a skilled traffic ticket defense lawyer may be able to argue a reckless driving charge down to a careless driving charge.
Other common traffic violations include driving while on a suspended or revoked driver’s license and driving without motor vehicle liability insurance. In New Jersey, you are required by law to have a valid driver’s license when operating a motor vehicle. You are also required by law to hold sufficient motor vehicle liability insurance when operating a motor vehicle. If a police officer stops you and discovers that you do not have a valid driver’s license or you do not have automobile insurance you will be issued a citation for the applicable violation.
One final traffic violation that is known to occur in Hopewell Township is leaving the scene of an accident. When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident that results in injury to someone, death, or more than $500 worth of property damage, you are required to remain at the scene of the accident until the police arrive. If you leave the scene of the accident, and law enforcement catches you, you will be issued a citation and a conviction means other serious consequences as well.

A traffic ticket is not something that you should simply pay the associated fee for it without another thought. You should seriously consider the long-term impact of a conviction and the points that could be added to your license before walking into the municipal court of Hopewell Township without an attorney. By simply paying the fee associated with your ticket and not challenging your ticket in court, you are effectively saying that you are guilty of the charge. This can result in points being added to your driving record and the penalties that apply for the violation. This is a foolish course of action in our view given that the lawyers at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall can probably avert a conviction.
