Belmar Driving While Suspended Charges
Driving while suspended tickets issued under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 are becoming more frequent in Belmar with the proliferation of on-board computers in almost every police car in the municipality. It is as easy as typing in a license plate number when someone is stopped at a light in order to determine whether they are driving while suspended. In the overwhelming percentage of cases, however, the defense lawyers at our office are successful in obtaining dismissal of a driving while suspended summons. There are notice requirements which must be established by the prosecutor in Belmar and because of this, the prosecutor is often amenable to amending this charge for a lawyer.
Belmar Driving Without Insurance Charges
Driving without Insurance under 39:6B-2 is a very serious offense and involves one year loss of license for a first offense and jail for a second or subsequent offense. It is always advisable for a defense lawyer to be handling this offense. Our defense lawyers make sure that every avenue of defense is exhausted and we also successful in the majority of cases in having this offense in Belmar amended to a lesser offense.
Belmar Leaving the Scene of an Accident Charges
If an accident involves anything more than minor damage, a conviction for leaving the scene of the associated accident under N.J.S.A. 39:4-130 generally carries license suspension of at least six (6) months. However, there is a lesser offense of failure to report an accident under N.J.S.A. 39:4-129 and our attorneys often succeed in having this amendment made such that no license suspension is imposed.
