Provisional License Violation
A New Brunswick provisional license is an exciting thing for a young driver. But with increased freedom comes increased responsibility. The city of New Brunswick (along with all of New Jersey) employs a graduated license program aimed at slowly increasing driving privileges over two years to ensure that a driver learns all the rules of the road. Unfortunately, New Brunswick police are always on the lookout for the slightest infraction by novice drivers so keep that in mind every time you get behind the wheel! With heightened punishments attached to even the smallest traffic ticket, simply accepting the charges against you is rarely the right course of action. Working with an experienced New Jersey provisional license violation attorney can help.
In addition to fines and penalties, insurance companies are known for increasing insurance premiums to a much higher rate for a violation on a provisional license than they would for the same violation by a more experienced driver. Additionally, when a driver on a provisional license (or probationary license) receives four or more points, they now have to also deal with taking a driver improvement course.
While the penalties attached to a ticket received on a New Brunswick provisional license may be different, the legal defenses are mostly the same. Give the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt, LLC, a call before you pay your ticket and let’s fight to avoid the points on your driving record altogether. While the option to plea to a no-point violation is not available to this class of cases, defeating the ticket certainly is.
In addition to following traffic rules, drivers with provisional licenses in New Brunswick also must abide by additional rules such as limited driving times, licensed driver supervision and license plate decals. What many of my clients don’t realize until it is too late is that paying a traffic ticket is also admitting guilt and accepting the points and penalties against them.
