For Mandatory Court Appearance Tickets:
If your ticket is marked mandatory court appearance you could also face up to 15 days in jail. Jail time is generally reserved by judges for cases where an accident has occurred. The penalties in regards to fines, jail or loss of license when a ticket is marked for a mandatory court appearance, must be determined by the judge on a case by case basis. Even though each ticket must meet the same statutory elements some offenses will weigh in at the highest end of the scale while others do not. The seven factors the judge must determine before suspending a drivers license or imposing jail for a traffic ticket with a mandatory court appearance are:
- The Nature and Circumstances of the driver's actions
- The driver's previous driving record
- The amount of time that has passed since the last driving infraction
- The driver's character and attitude
- Whether the conduct of careless driving is likely or unlikely to happen again
- Any excessive hardship the sentence would cause
- The need for personal deterrence
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)
