Skilled attorneys negotiate traffic tickets for their clients

Have you been issued a speeding ticket in the state of New Jersey? Though a speeding ticket is a minor offense, they come with the financial burden of points on your driver’s record and various fines and surcharges. Those points will affect your driving record and insurance premiums. Most tickets can be fought or negotiated. Having a skilled attorney working for your case is recommended. Call an attorney at Keith Hirschorn, P.C. to discuss you case. We want to resolve the issue and avoid points on your record.

Circumstances of speeding tickets

The New Jersey speeding violation point system:

  • 2-point violation:  1-14 miles per hour over the speed limit.
  • 4-point violation:  15-30 miles per hour over the speed limit.
  • 5-point violation:  30 miles per hour over the speed limit.

Every ticket comes with a set of fines associated with the violation. A  New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission surcharge will be assigned and points on your driving record will raise your insurance premiums.

Alternate driving programs explained

If you have accumulated 12 or more points on your license, a judge might offer you enrollment into a driver improvement program to avoid a license suspension. If you have a probationary license and accumulated two or more moving violations equaling 4 or more points, you will be ordered to complete the Probationary Driver Program in order to keep your license. The Defensive Driving Program is open to the public and you can use it to reduce your driving record points or attend per your judge’s orders.

An experienced traffic violation attorney has many ways to minimize the impact of the charge and sometimes dismiss the charges altogether. At Keith Hirschorn, P.C., we will review the facts of your case, like the calibration of the radar gun used to issue your ticket, whether the officer was certified to use the radar device, and any other defenses that can get your ticket dismissed or downgraded. Most prosecutors will plea bargain simple traffic tickets for someone with a clean record. Speaking with one of our attorneys is in your best interest. Call us today for a consultation.
