New Jersey State Police and Monroe Township Police issue a lot of traffic tickets for infractions such as speeding, tailgating, careless driving, and driving while license suspended. Many people simply pay the ticket and send it in, pleading guilty. Others choose to represent themselves. This can be a big mistake, but one that it not realized until it is too late.
Pleading guilty can lead to outrageously high fines, motor vehicle and insurance eligibility points and increased insurance surcharges and premiums. Some offenses also carry driver’s license suspensions, community service and exposure to jail time. If you represent yourself, you will observe the presence of the prosecutor in court, who represents the state. You are entitled too and should have competent legal representation.
