South Brunswick New Jersey No Car Insurance Attorney
Driving in South Brunswick is an expensive endeavor-between your car payments, rising gas prices, car maintenance, registration and insurance it is no wonder that many people try to skimp or ignore the requirement to carry the minimum amount of car insurance at all times. But the legal reality is this: the state of New Jersey requires that all state-registered vehicles to have car insurance and disregarding this very important requirement carries some major fines and penalties-including the possibility of losing your driving privileges forever. If you have been charged with this offense you should get in touch with an experienced South Brunswick attorney immediately.
Minimum car insurance coverage requirements in South Brunswick include: $15,000 for the injury or death of one person; $30,000 for the death or injury of more than one person; $5,000 for property damage. Governed by NJSA 39:B-2, getting caught driving without insurance in South Brunswick carries the following penalties:
- First offense: Fines between $301-$1,002; community service requirements; $250 three year DMV surcharge; insurance eligibility points
- Second offense: Fines starting at $502; community service requirements; 2 year drivers' license suspension; $250 three year DMV surcharge; $30 court fee; 9 insurance eligibility points
As you can see, the state of New Jersey takes this offense very seriously. So seriously that for those second time offenders, the two year license suspension is at the discretion of the court to make much longer.
