You Should Never Ignore A Traffic Violation Citation
In Passaic County and throughout New Jersey, police issue thousands of traffic tickets every year. While a traffic violation may seem minor, a conviction can have a large impact on your driving record and insurance rates. Your best option for avoiding expensive fines is to work with an experienced traffic violation attorney.
I am attorney Alfred Acquavira, and I have over 30 years of experience working as a defense attorney and as a municipal prosecutor in New Jersey. I have a deep understanding of both sides of the legal system, and I know how to build a strong case to help you avoid hefty fees and expensive insurance surcharges.
A Simple Speeding Ticket Can Have Serious Consequences
In New Jersey, moving traffic violations include offenses ranging in severity, from running a stoplight to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
I can represent you in a wide range of traffic violation cases, including:
- Careless and reckless driving
- DWI and DUIs
- Running a stop sign or light
If convicted of a moving violation, you will likely pay expensive fines and you will incur points against your license, which can raise your insurance rate. If you accumulate 12 points or more, the state will suspend your license.
Does A Speeding Ticket Affect Your CDL?
For commercial drivers, a traffic violation conviction can have more serious consequences beyond fines and raised insurance rates. Even a two-point ticket, such as failure to yield, running a red light or careless driving, can cost you your license and your job.
One or two speeding tickets can lead to a two-month suspension of your commercial license. For third offenses and subsequent tickets, you could lose your license for 120 days, taking you out of work and leaving you with higher insurance premiums. In these cases, your employer may terminate your employment.
Your best option after receiving a traffic violation citation is to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. I will thoroughly examine your case and help you understand your options. When possible, I can help negotiate a plea deal that does not end in the suspension of your CDL.
