It happens more often than you think that out of state drivers get traffic tickets in New Jersey. Maybe it is because they are not familiar with the traffic laws in New Jersey or maybe it’s because police officers see out of state drivers as easy targets to ticket. Why do out of state drivers make easy targets for police officers?
It’s far from the warm welcoming party that you would hope for in New Jersey, but police officers that issue traffic tickets to out of state drivers understand that chances are that person will not come back to contest the ticket in court. Uncontested tickets make a police officer’s job very simple because he automatically gets a ‘conviction’ without having to testify in court.
If you are an out of state driver and receive a traffic ticket in New Jersey, do not give up hope because you do have legitimate options to fight your traffic ticket. Whether you received a ticket for speeding, careless or reckless driving or some other traffic offense you should consult with a New Jersey traffic defense attorney to explore your options.

What Happens If I Don’t Respond To My Traffic Violation Matter In New Jersey?
Not responding to the traffic violation is never the answer because somewhere down the line you will have to take care of it. Drivers that avoid paying their fines and handling their court case often find themselves in even worse situations, especially when getting arrested becomes more of a reality. Not answering a traffic ticket can result in the judge entering a judgment in your absence and suspending your driving privileges. If you are caught driving with a suspended license you will be charged with a serious traffic offense which in some states is a crime.
