Speeding Ticket Lawyers in Morris County NJ
Handling Traffic Offenses in Parsippany, New Jersey
It is hard to believe but a speeding ticket can cause you serious consequences including fines, driver’s license suspension, and even jail time if the speed was egregious. But it doesn’t have to. Here is a case we handled for one of our very happy clients in the Parsippany Municipal Court.
Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client who was facing a number of traffic tickets in Parsippany NJ including speeding under N.J.S.A. 39:4-98 for allegedly driving 120 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. This is a 5 point ticket in New Jersey and can also include a license suspension and even jail time depending on the court and the Judge. In addition, he also had a tailgating ticket for following too closely under N.J.S.A. 39:4-89 which is another 5 point ticket. He was also charged with failing to give a proper signal under N.J.S.A. 39:4-126 which is a 2 point ticket. Finally, he was charged with careless driving under N.J.S.A. 39:4-97 which is a 2 point ticket. As a result, he was facing 14 points in tickets along with potential license loss and jail time from the Court. In addition, DMV will suspend his license if he accumulates 10-12 points.
Our client had never had a ticket before in his life. His wife was 8 months pregnant and was ill so we was running late for work which was why he was speeding. It was also 6 am so there were very few cars on the road, if any. Based on all these facts and circumstances, Mr. Tormey was able to convince the prosecutor and the Judge not to impose any jail time or license suspension for this offense. He plead guilty to reckless driving (a 5 point ticket) and paid a fine with no additional consequences.
