Why and How Do You Get This Ticket
In NJ any driver involved in an accident must submit a written
report of the accident containing information on the cause,
condition, and persons and vehicles involved within 10 days
after the accident to the local police department where the
accident occurred.  Generally a failure to report an accident
ticket is charged with other tickets.  This is a ticket which is
rarely charged by itself.  Because of this fact most of our clients
also have ticket for
leaving the scene of an accident,  
careless or reckless driving.  In New Jersey you must
immediately notify the police, by the quickest possible method
(generally by phone) that you have been involved in an
accident.  Fault of the accident does not matter only the fact of
an accident.  Thus in a 2 car accident both drivers are
responsible to notify the police.   In most incidents this ticket is
mailed to your home or workplace and in rare instances it may
be personally served to you by a police officer at your
residence.  Please note that any passenger in the vehicle may
also have a liability to report the accident to the police.
