A traffic ticket is no big deal, or is it?

If someone were to ask you whether you have a criminal record, you might be glad you can answer in the negative. However, if there's a past DUI or some other serious offense in your history, you're definitely not the only person in New Jersey who would have to answer positively to surveys regarding criminal histories. What about less-serious offenses such as traffic violations? Has a police officer ever issued you a speeding ticket?

If you've been a licensed driver for many years, it may not be the first time you've seen flashing red and blue lights from a police car in your rear view mirror. Perhaps your past includes a speeding ticket or some other minor traffic offense or maybe the last time an officer stopped you, he or she issued a warning then allowed you to leave.

If you are charged with a DUI, you would be wise to know what you are up against and to take the necessary steps to build a strong defense.
