Deal Borough Municipal Court

With the speed limit in Deal set at 35 MPH, Route 71 sees its fair share of speeding tickets. Driving at excessive speeds can increase your charges from speeding to careless or reckless driving, both of which add more points to your New Jersey driver’s license and can lead to fines, and in some cases, driver’s license suspension, and even potential jail time.

If you have been charged with reckless driving, it is important that you understand your rights. You have the right to contest the charges — you do not have to automatically pay the fine and accept guilt. Reckless driving involves more than simply traveling at an excessive rate of speed. Under New Jersey statute § 39:4-96. Reckless driving; punishment, a reckless driver is defined as follows:

“A person who drives a vehicle heedlessly, in willful or wanton disregard of the rights or safety of others, in a manner so as to endanger, or be likely to endanger, a person or property.”

Proving intent and willful conduct is key in getting convictions in reckless driving cases, and something our attorneys may be able to challenge. If you have been charged with reckless driving, you need an attorney — if found guilty, you could be punished by imprisonment in the county or municipal jail for a period of not more than 60 days, or be ordered to pay a fine of not less than $ 50.00 or more than $200.00, or both.

Experienced Reckless Driving Defense Attorneys

We will fight to have charges dismissed or reduced from reckless driving (which can be considered a criminal offense) to careless driving which is considered a traffic violation. A conviction on reckless driving charges will almost certainly lead to an increase in your auto insurance rates and adds 5 points to your New Jersey driver’s license. While a conviction of careless driving can also lead to an increase in insurance rates, careless driving only adds 2 points to your New Jersey driver’s license and the penalties are less severe.

Even minor traffic violations and municipal offenses can have a serious impact on your driving privileges and your criminal record. Many people do not think to hire an attorney when it comes to a traffic violation or a related offense, and instead choose to pay the fine or plead “guilty” without trying to challenge the traffic citation or moving violation offense.
