What is considered a traffic violation?

In New Jersey, it's understood by everyone that the rules of the road need to be followed. However, accidents happen and mistakes can be made. Sometimes, even misunderstandings can lead to tickets. The Law Offices of Michael T. Nolan, Jr. will explain what traffic violations are, and how they might impact you if you find yourself accused of committing one.

Traffic violations are considered the lowest level of severity in terms of the traffic-related charges you may face. Misdemeanors are the next step up, though some traffic violations can also be considered misdemeanors. The most severe charges are felonies, which usually involve some sort of physical injury or harm done to another person in the crash.

Generally speaking, traffic violations involve things like:

  • Not obeying traffic signs and signals
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without your license

If the incident does not involve other vehicles, then it's likely that you will simply get a ticket rather than having to go to court or deal with more severe penalties.

You can also get a traffic citation for things like having broken headlights or tail lights, or having expired tags on your license plate. Generally speaking, these violations are treated with a little more leniency.

If you are currently facing any traffic-related charge and wish to know what your options are when moving forward, please visit our web page.
