The state must prove that the violation may have had the potential of affecting traffic to find a person guilty of this offense.
In New Jersey for Insurance purposes it takes 3 years from the date of your violation/conviction for the points to be eliminated off your insurance. That is why a conviction for this offense should be fought with proper legal representation.
For Tickets Marked Mandatory Court Appearance: In addition, to points you could also receive up to 15 days in jail. (note that unless your offense involves an accident or a mandatory court appearance it is very rare, but possible for a judge to impose jail). In addition to possible jail for tickets marked mandatory court appearance, the judge does have the discretion to suspend your license.

Under NJSA: 39:5-31: A judge may suspend the driving privileges of any person he/she deems to be guilty of a “willful violation” of the law. In simplified layman terms this means that, if the driver knew or should have known, what he/she was doing was illegal or improper, (example running a red light or speeding double the limit or 30mph or more over the limit etc.) the judge may issue a license revocation or suspension to that person even if the particular statute has no provision for a license suspension.
A suspension under 39:5-31 is generally only given by a judge when a ticket is either:
- Marked with a mandatory court appearance or
- When an accident occurs as a result of the ticketed persons actions or
- If the person has a bad past driving record. (points may go away over time, but the violation stays on your record for life)
