Can I reduce my careless driving ticket to zero points and pay the fine?
5 attorney answers
In Edison you can get a 0 point ticket for the asking, But it will be unsafe driving, 39:4-97.2 and is $439 first offense. Plus some insurance companies consider "unsafe" a risk event anyway.
An experienced attorney could help you reduce your careless to zero points since this is your first moving violation.
Maybe, but a lawyer would have a much better chance of success and generally with a lower fine. The problem is a good lawyer may cost you more money than the fine and insurance cost increase as this is only a 2 point ticket, but certainly not a good ticket to have on your record and thus the reason many people fight it. That being said you especially need to fight it if you drive for a living (uber, lyft etc), have other tickets with points on your record or have a CDL license. If you are still unsure on what to do, most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer a free in office consultation.

Obviously, no one knows if you can, but certainly an experienced attorney could. But more information may be helpful. You may want to speak with a lawyer
