There are multiple types of traffic violations people can commit. Many result in tickets, which may not seem serious but do have an impact on your life in several ways. Some of the most common reasons for getting tickets include speeding or running a red light or stop sign.
It's against the law to drive your vehicle without registering it, having a license or carrying insurance. If you've been caught without your registration, that's a serious offense that could lead to deep trouble.
Evading police is something you don't ever want to do. Evading police refers to when you try to avoid an officer after he or she tries to stop you or pull you over. It's always better to stay calm and to look for a place to pull over if you're in your vehicle; running from the police only puts you and others in danger.
You were pulling out of a parking space when you realized you hadn't given yourself enough room. You scraped the car next to you, and when you looked at the damage, it was fairly obvious that there had been contact between your vehicles.
In New Jersey, you can lose your license if you have enough negative points on your record. The state suspends a person's license if he or she has 12 or more points on his or her driving record. The notice of suspension comes in the mail, which is why it's important to keep your license up-to-date.
Motor vehicle accidents are a reality of life in high-traffic areas, such as cities and major highways. Collisions are often minor and result in nothing more serious than car damage, but there is little more dangerous to pedestrians than to be hit by a car.
A suspension and revocation are not the same. In the case of a suspension, you lose the right to drive for a period of time before it is returned to you. Sometimes, the courts require you to pay a fee before the suspended license will be returned to you and your driving privileges restored.
No one should ever drive without insurance. Driving without insurance is an incredible risk. If you get into an accident, there's a potential for you to face a lawsuit. If you're stopped by police for another traffic issue, you could face the loss of your license and other penalties.
"We are grieving -- we lost one son, and we have one son that's wanted for something he didn't do," said a Queens mother, whose 19 year-old son is accused of crashing his 2008 Acura and leaving his mortally injured brother, 22, behind in the car as he fled the scene.
