Brielle Municipal Court Offenses
If you received a speeding ticket, or other moving violation on Route 35, Route 71, or anywhere in the jurisdiction of Brielle, NJ, your may think that your only option is to pay the ticket, which is the same thing as pleading guilty to the offense. This may even seem like the fastest, and therefore, the best way to handle the problem — pay the ticket and simply move forward. But you have the right to challenge any ticket or charge against you in municipal court and protect your driving record.
Even though most moving violations are deemed “civil” offenses, a conviction can still cost you in increased insurance premiums, add points to your driver’s license, and in some cases, result in loss of driving privileges. Before you pay the ticket and accept the charges against you, talk with one of our traffic violations defense attorneys to make sure you fully understand the consequences, and to explore your legal options.
