Hi.......I am looking for NJ...
Hi.......I am looking for NJ traffic lawyer. I have a few queries to ask.Situation : I (32 yrs mom) was driving with my 3 year old. I was going to take a left turn. So I stopped and saw that the road was clear and proceeded to take a turn. Suddenly from no where a guy was speeding and coming in my direction, he was also talking on the phone. I feared it and to try to avoid collision and tried to straighten back on my road. He to avoid collision took a turn towards my side. And we ended up on same side and collided. None of us were injured, but our cars got crashed and hence needed to be towed. I got a ticket. I need to appear in court on 26th Jan, 2018....to plead not guilty. The cop said she didnot cut any points for me.I have a international travel tommorow morning 13th Jan, 2018. The tickets have been booked 3 weeks back. My inlaws are really very sick and it is a family emergency. My return ticket is booked for March mid.1) Can I postponed the court hearing to March end?
2)What will happen if I don't postpone and go off on my travel?
3) What will happen if I plead guilty and pay $85? How all will I be affected.....what other charges I will need to pay.....?
4)They towed our car. What are the next steps I need to do?
5) Should I be present in the court physically or can I talk on a call too?

Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. What offense were you ticketed for? If you have the penal code section from the citation, that would be especially helpful.

Thank you. I am going to have my lunch and will call you with the half hour.

Ask Your Own Traffic Law Question

Careless Driving in NJ is called a disorderly person's offense. Although it has a maximum possible penalty of 6 months in jail, it is considered to be something less than a crime. Crimes are indictable offenses in NJ, and this is not one of them.

Most commonly, the matter is disposed of with an $85 fine. You would be convicted of the offense, and that conviction would show on your driving and criminal history.

I'll address the rest of your question, when I call.

When we called the insurance........ they say that my policy i deactived, i have policy document valid till jul 4th
they saying that since card didnt go through..they deatived. we have no cancellation notification either
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
we opened claim, but they are telling it is lapse from jan 4th..please suggest what should i do in this situation..will the insurance cover claim? t
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
they didnot send us any notification of cancellation.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
we use progressive insurance in NJ

Your insurance company is not going to want to cover the claim if your payment was declined. But yes, they are required to give you 30 days notice in New Jersey before deactivating the policy. You'd have to take them to court, but if you got no notice the law is on your side.

The insurance has put our claim on hold...within what period they should reach back? We already told them we are travelling tomm. How should approach we approach them? How can we collect evidence to prove that the insurance is avoiding .

This is now way outside of the scope of the original question, and it involves insurance law which is not my specialty. I don't want to misinform you. You need to post another question in general legal where an insurance lawyer can assist you.
