Clients will often call and ask whether or not they have to appear in court with a traffic ticket. The answer is usually no. The traffic tickets in New Jersey, whether they’re handwritten or electronically printed, indicate whether or not you have to appear in court or whether you can pay the ticket. Certain tickets, such as a DWI or a cell phone ticket, cannot be resolved without a court appearance. It’s very important that you contact an attorney after being issued a traffic ticket so that you know all of the different ways you’ll have of resolving it.
