Traffic Violations


Traffic violations are essentially tickets for infractions of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Code. Everyone who drives on the roadway in New Jersey subjects themselves to the laws of this state.  If an alleged infraction occurs, a police officer pull you over and issue a ticket.  

Tickets are not crimes and cannot be seen on a background check.  While not considered as serious as a crime, they do have consequences. As such,  you are entitled to a trial in the Municipal Court in the town where the alleged infraction occurred.   

If found guilty of a traffic violation, depending on the offense, the court can suspend your license, impose a fine, put you in jail, or impose points that increase insurance costs.  Additionally, if you are involved in a car accident, admitting to conduct in the form of a guilty plea may be used against you in a civil suit for damages. 

There are many consequences to a traffic ticket that most drivers are unaware of.  Ms. Fiorino has been in practice for nearly two decades and has experience in handling traffic tickets.  She will assist in your case and advise as to potential resolutions and outcomes, or try the case if so desired.
