The Effect Of Traffic Violations, DUI and DWI On Your Privilege To Drive In New Jersey
In New Jersey, driving is not considered a right, but a privilege. Accumulating too many points on your license and convictions for certain offenses may affect your driving privileges. Therefore, we take all traffic offenses seriously and examine each client’s past convictions as well as present charges and defenses to try to preserve this privilege now and in the future.
Here are just some offenses in New Jersey that may interfere with your driving privileges, depending on the factual circumstances of your case:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Speeding (exceeding the speed limit at high speeds)
- Reckless driving
- Driving on a suspended license
- Driving without insurance
- Breath test refusal
- Leaving the scene of an accident
Many times, you can simply pay the ticket for the offense without needing to step foot in a courtroom. In some cases, though, it may not be in your best interests to do so. Whether or not you pay a traffic ticket should be decided after considering several factors and talking to your attorney.
