A truck or bus driver who receive a careless driving ticket in NJ must fight this ticket with
skilled legal representation.  Reason: your job may not allow you to operate your truck
or bus.  Although the insurance for a car could be raised up to $3500 over 3 years, for
a truck or bus this number could be up to $10,000.00 or more.  If you own your own
truck or bus, and have a car you could be paying for both!  If you drive for someone
else, several insurance companies simply won't insure drivers ticketed for Careless
Driving within the past 36 months.  If you are a CDL driver you must fight your ticket as it
could mean the loss of your next raise, your job and everything you have worked to
hard to protect.  We offer special discounts for all commercial truck and bus drivers
charged with a careless driving ticket as we know that your not rich and need to get the

Fine of up to $200 and or Fifteen Days in Jail or License Suspension
Jail or License Suspension are rare and is generally reserved for bad drivers, accidents
with injuries or other extreme circumstances - see lawyer for details.
Specific Issues For Accident Cases: If you got a ticket because you were involved in
an accident another important issue our office can help you with is to seal the testimony
or plea of your case by motioning the court for a civil reservation.  If granted by the
court this will not allow your plea to be used against you in a possible civil suit that the
other driver may bring against for any injuries or property damage.  Although this will
not stop a later civil suit against you for the other person injury or property damage due
to your careless driving, it can make that case much harder and lead to a lower
settlement of the case.  Thus, saving both you and your insurance company money.
