Reckless Driving Attorney in Ocean County
Reckless Driving Defense Lawyers in Point Pleasant, New Jersey
Reckless Driving is a New Jersey Motor Vehicle Violation that is accompanied by some of the stiffest penalties in state traffic law. To explain just how serious the charge is, bear in mind that five (5) points added onto your driving record accompany a conviction. The courts have broad discretion when it comes to reckless driving tickets – for example, the court may reduce the points entirely or go beyond the points and suspend your driver’s license or even sentence you to jail. Rest assured that incarceration is only imposed in limited situations typically involving a victim who has been seriously injured or killed as a result of the alleged reckless driving. However, municipal judges will often suspend driver’s licenses if the reckless driving involved exceedingly high speeds or property damage. An experienced municipal court and NJ traffic defense lawyer is your best chance to mitigate or avoid these charges altogether. At the Law Offices of William Proetta Criminal Law, our attorneys are often able to work with the prosecutor in order to get reckless driving tickets amended to lower offenses such as careless driving or unsafe operation.
