What if I have a Traffic Ticket in Voorhees
For traffic cases in municipal court, only the most serious violations or those that involve someone sustaining an injury in an accident, tend to require a court appearance. Therefore, it may not be necessary for you to appear for a court date in front of a judge – provided that you do not plan to contest the ticket and instead remit payment to the municipal court in advance. You will need to check with the court to see how payment should be sent. Usually, courts accept checks, money orders, or credit card payments. It may also be possible to drop off a cash payment in person at the courthouse. However, before deciding not to appear for a scheduled municipal court date, you need to take a close look at the summons and make sure that the “court appearance box” has not been checked. If the box has been checked, this means that you must show up for your court date. Note that if you have a DWI case, you will always be required to address the charges in court, as these technical motor vehicle violations are handled similarly to lower level criminal matters.
Unless your alleged traffic offense also involved a criminal act, such as assault by auto or eluding police, it is likely that the case will be handled in the local municipal court. Some of the most common traffic charges handled in Voorhees Municipal Courts include the following: Speeding, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Driving with a Suspended License, Driving Without Insurance, Leaving the Scene of an Accident (unless someone was injured and you are charged with a criminal offense), and Driving under the Influence (DUI). Most traffic violations in New Jersey will result in “points” being assessed on the defendant’s license. As a motorist accrues points on their license, it is possible that their auto insurance premiums will rise. Moreover, if a motorist gets too many points, their driver’s license will be suspended or revoked by the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). Residents of other states can expect to have points assessed by the motor vehicle agency in their home states. Some of the most serious traffic violations, such as Driving While Intoxicated, can result in the offender being sentenced to jail time. This is very possible if the defendant is a repeat offender with multiple drunk driving convictions on their record. NJ law calls for a mandatory sentence of at least two (2) days in jail for a second DWI offense within a 10-year period.
