Hi,
I got a ticket in Brick for "Careless Driving, Likely to endanger person or property" yesterday with a fine of $86. I looked it up and it seems like I will be getting 2 points for this if I just plead guilty.
FYI, I made a wide turn by a light and drifted into the other lane which cause a car to make a short stop with a cop right behind us.
My license is otherwise clean.

Any recommendations on how to fight this easily to avoid the points? Or just pay it and deal with it?

Thanks
I got the same ticket recently ( I drifted in and out of a lane) I plead not guilty. The court cases are all on zoom. You meet with the prosecutor first, if you have a clean record they will remove the points and Give you a ticket with a fine, or maybe even get it completely dismissed. No need for any Laywer.

There are standards, and then for a little more money, you can get something special. I would recommend for a DW to go to the next level, and here are three options:

Zeigelman's small classic caramel, $38 IIRC, available off Madison Avenue and Cary Street IIRC

Schucks Fine Pastries, small strawberry short cake or small blueberry custard cake, $50 IIRC, on Shonny Court

Mousse-filled heart or other fancy creations, $25-$85 range, The Choco Shoppe - across from Segal Square.


I can gladly PM you the phone numbers to any of these stores.

ETA: Picture of Choco Shoppe creations here, so you can get the feelings. It may be more for anniversary type.
What size cake do you get at seigelmans for $38? The Purim miniatures start at $22 for two small miniatures...  is it located in a house?

Gotta be careful with that. If they change it to a moving violation you're insurance will still go up even if the DMV didn't give any points

But isnt it already a moving violation now, so what is there to lose?

Attorney fees, court fees, and the extra amout you pay for the no points plea bargain.

Yes, call first to make sure they have in stock. I never tried ordering before Purim, but they usually have the standard cakes in stock.

Zevi had suggested I just try to Plea Bargain myself.
Gogreen responded that I need to be careful as they can change it to a moving violation

So my question was, isnt it already a moving violation, what do I have to lose? And with this idea I would not be paying any attorney fees, and I would imagine an increased fine is well worth not having my insurance rates go up?

Gogreen said "they may change it to a moving violation". I think what he meant was that they may change it to a moving violation without points, as opposed to the current ticket which is a moving violation with points.

Having them change the ticket to a "non points" is considered a plea bargain even if the new ticket is a moving violation ticket. This means you will pay a higher fine.
It also means your insurance will have just as much of an effect as it would with the orginal ticket.

So it turns out that even without lawyer fees, you're paying a higher fine for no gain.

The bottom line is, you should try really hard to get them to turn the ticket into a non moving violation.

Another thing to consider is if you already have points on your license. If yes, then even a different moving violation is worth it if means 0 additional points.

When I tried in Lakewood, they wanted to change it to reckless driving, but with no points. It would've been a $400 and change fee, plus an insurance bump. Spoke to a lawyer and he had them change it to a non-moving violation.
