A traffic violation probably doesn’t sound like a big deal to you. Indeed, in many cases, it is not. That said, if you already have a of number violations on your driving record, or if you were involved in a more serious offense, such as leaving the scene of an accident or driving under suspension, the penalties you are facing may be more severe than you can imagine. Our attorneys at Spodek Law Group can help you with your traffic violation charges and minimize the possible consequences you might face.

Traffic Violations Law in New Jersey

Most traffic violations are dealt with in the Municipal Court of the city where you received a citation. Traffic violations are categorized into two types: non-moving violations or moving violations. Speeding, for example, is a common moving violation, which can result in a 2 to 5 point assessment against your driver’s license.

This accrual of points can ultimately lead to a license suspension. If you accumulate 12 points against your license in a two year period, the Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator will suspend your license anywhere between 30 and 180 days. Over a period longer than two years, 15 points will get you a suspension. There are ways to offset this points accrual.

Fees and surcharges are other common repercussions of a traffic violation.  These typically range between $50 and $500. Numerous traffic offenses can also lead to higher insurance premiums or even loss of coverage. More serious violations also carry a potential for jail time.


There are dozens of traffic offenses in New Jersey. Here are some of the most common violations:

  • Speeding
  • Careless Driving
  • Reckless Driving
  • Traffic Light Violation
  • Failure to Yield
  • Failure to Stop
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident
  • Driving Without Car Insurance
  • Driving Under a Suspended License
