Can Traffic Tickets Be Plea Bargained Down in New Jersey?

traffic ticket

The answer is yes with some limitations. Some tickets, such as DWIs, cannot be plea bargained. Most, however, can. Prosecutors though are limited in that they can only plea bargain to a ticket that’s related to the original offense. A speeding ticket, for instance, cannot be plea bargained to something like having your brake light out. It’s important to get an experienced attorney to go in to negotiate with a prosecutor and make sure that you get the best possible deal.
