Like criminal offenses, the state must prove traffic violations beyond a reasonable doubt. The burden is on the state to prove its case. While you are free to introduce evidence of your own and testify, you don’t have to. Traffic violations in New Jersey are governed by title 39 of the motor vehicle code.
Common traffic offenses in Marlboro Township include Speeding (NJSA 39:4-98); Careless Driving (NJSA 39:4-97); and Marlboro DWI (NJSA 39:4-50). There are defenses to all of these charges, however most drivers cited with them are usually factually guilty. Much of the defense practice of traffic tickets in New Jersey centers on plea bargaining, and knowing how to punch holes in the state’s case.
Marlboro is a suburban community in Monmouth County. It is upper-middle class and a bedroom community of New York City. Manalapan, Aberdeen, Old Bridge, and Colts Neck all border Marlboro. Newark, New Brunswick and Princeton are also within commuting distance. Many of the traffic tickets issued in Marlboro are also to out-of-state and out-of-town drivers. This is because of Route 9 and Route 18.
These two roads act as a corridor through Marlboro to towns north and south. For this reason, and also because of the intersections and businesses off Route 9, much of that road is classified as a safe corridor through the area. Fines can be doubled in a safe corridor.
