New Jersey State Laws
For Out of State Drivers
Are you worried about losing your New Jersey license or jail?
Every State and the District of Columbia treats out of State drivers according to their home rules and regulations. If you get a traffic ticket in New Jersey, it is important to understand exactly what the consequences will be in your State and how the ticket will be handled when reported back to your home State. Lengths of suspension and points can vary widely from State to State. For your convenience, listed below, are the Web addresses for all of the States and the District of Columbia's motor vehicle web sites. Please check to see how a ticket in New Jersey will affect you in your home State. If you are not certain as to what treatment you will receive in your home State, it is suggested that you contact an attorney licensed to practice in your State.
Frequently, drivers who reside in States outside of New Jersey receive tickets in New Jersey. It is often a huge expense and inconvenience to have to return to New Jersey to handle these traffic matters. It is possible, with permission of the Court, to have an attorney appear and negotiate on your behalf, including entering into a plea bargain, in your case. The outcome is memorialized in an affidavit which is then filed with the Court, without the necessity of you ever appearing in Court. If you live out of State, we will be pleased to obtain permission to appear in Court on your matter and prepare the necessary affidavit so that you can avoid an appearance in Court, at no additional charge above our customary fees.
