Law Office of Robert J. Wittmann

I'm a South Jersey general practice attorney, Truman Scholar and former Congressional staffer with a passion for justice. My general practice focuses on civil litigation, family law and municipal court.

New Jersey Traffic Law

New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the country. More people driving per square mile increases the chance for motor vehicle accidents including those that can cause serious bodily injury or death. As a result New Jersey has the strictest traffic laws in the nation. 

New Jersey police are thus extra-vigilant in enforcing the state’s motor vehicle laws.  While their goal for public safety is important, occasionally people are charged with inappropriate or incorrect traffic violations.  Many times this is a result of nothing more than simple human error. Contrary to popular belief, speed measurement devices like lasers and radar are not foolproof, and are subject to error. The same goes for the Alcotest devicethat is used by police to measure Blood Alcohol Content, or B.A.C. Officers are also very busy, and Defendants---under the stress of getting a ticket---may not have been able to articulate themselves properly so as to give the police officer a fuller and more complete view of the circumstances under which they were driving.

New Jersey's State, Port Authority and Municipal police departments are among the nation's best. They don't often make mistakes. But if they do, and you are innocent, the worst thing you can do is blindly plea guilty to a crime or traffic offense that you didn't commit.

If you honestly believe that you are being charged with a traffic violation you either didn't commit or is more serious than that which occurred, then please don't hesitate to contact me.  I will take the time to work with you to carefully explore all the aspects of your case and decide the best course of action.
