Rely on Lombardi & Lombardi to Fight Your Traffic Ticket in Monmouth, Ocean and Essex Counties and throughout New Jersey
When you get stopped by an officer and ticketed for a traffic violation, depending on the charges, you risk points on your driving record, insurance surcharges, and stiff fines. Each type of violation has a “point” value and when a New Jersey driver reaches 12 points, their driver’s license is suspended for an extended period of time. It’s very important to keep your driving record clean and point-free.
It’s not unusual to feel like you should just write a check and pay the fine when you get a traffic ticket. After all, who has time to go to court and it feels easier to just put the ticket behind you and move on. Just because a lot of people think that way doesn’t make it a good idea. Paying the ticket is the equivalent of pleading guilty. In fact, fighting the traffic ticket with a knowledgeable attorney by your side often results in fewer or no points on your driving record.
Contact Lombardi and Lombardi right away for assistance with any of the following traffic charges:
Driving While Intoxicated (DUI/DWI): In New Jersey, drinking and driving is a traffic violation, heard in municipal court. The local judge, however, has the authority to suspend or revoke your license, levy severe financial consequences and incarcerate you for DWI.
Speeding: Points and fines associated with speeding are based on the number of miles per hour over the speed limit you were caught driving.
Reckless Driving: Knowingly driving a way that puts others on the road at risk of serious injury is considered “reckless driving.”
Failure to Yield or Stop: Traffic signs are posted for a reason; they direct the safe flow of traffic. Any driver who doesn’t stop at a yield or stop sign, or blows through a red light, puts others in potential danger.
Hit & Run: Any driver who is involved in a collision that causes property damage or bodily injury has a legal duty to exchange information with others at the scene and provide reasonable assistance to anyone injured in the accident. Failure to do this is known as Leaving the Scene of an Accident. This is a traffic charge that may also result in criminal charges.
Distracted Driving: It’s against the law to use a handheld cell phone — to text, talk, surf, etc. — while operating a motor vehicle. In New Jersey, if you are charged with Texting while Driving or another cell phone infraction, you will have a required court appearance. Don’t go it alone; make sure you have your Lombardi & Lombardi defense lawyer at your side.
Driving with a Suspended License: If you have accumulated 12 points on your driving record, you will lose your license to operate a motor vehicle like a car, truck, or motorcycle for a period of time. If you drive while your license is suspended and get pulled over, the suspension may be extended and financial penalties will increase significantly.
CDL Traffic Violations: To operate a tractor trailer, big rig or other commercial vehicle, a driver needs to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Violating CDL traffic laws, especially DWI/DUI, can results in stiff fines, many points and even a suspension of the CDL. These penalties will usually put a truck driver’s job in jeopardy because no CDL=no ability to get the job done.
Driving without Insurance: All NJ drivers are required to carry a minimum amount of motor vehicle insurance. If you operate a car, truck or motorcycle without valid insurance, you will be facing a serious traffic violation that could result in jail time.

If you were pulled over in Edison, Brick, Freehold or anywhere else in New Jersey, don’t just plead guilty and pay the ticket. The financial cost may be exorbitant. Some charges can result in jail time. In addition to the ticket fine, you will likely face several years of insurance premium surcharges. Further, if you have received more than one ticket during the traffic stop, or already have points on your license, depending on the charges, you may be at risk of having your license suspended.
