Traffic Citations – Could it be Free Speech?


by in Traffic Tickets

New Jersey traffic citation lawyer Anthony Vecchio explains how one driver used free speach as a defense and won!

After flashing his headlights to warn oncoming motorists of a speed trap, the driver was given a “$260 ticket for improperly using his headlights.” Instead of paying the fee outright, the driver fought the ticket in court. The Oregon driver recently learned that he’d won the legal challenge in an unusual way – on the grounds that the citation violated his free speech.

Like every alleged violation, New Jersey’s vehicle code and other state law dictates the basis for a dismissal of a traffic ticket. So, while New Jersey drivers cited for a traffic violation may not expect a similar outcome as the one in Oregon, a dismissal on other grounds is still possible.

Traffic violations—including driving without a license or with a suspended license, driving without insurance, speeding, failing to stop, or otherwise allegedly violating Title 39 of the code—vary in severity and penalties. Some can—and should—be fought in court. Many New Jersey motorists are under the mistaken impression that fighting a ticket in court is costly and not worth the time and effort.

If, however, you’re facing more serious consequences, you should to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Facing a suspended driver’s license, or a revocation of a commercial license, or even jail time, can cost you time and money as you miss work due to an inability to commute. You may not have the luxury of time to debate whether you should contact a knowledgeable traffic-ticket attorney.
