A New Jersey Drivers License may be suspended for a plethora of reasons. Among these reasons are: (1) receiving 12 or more points on your current driver record, (2) failing to appear in court or to pay fines, (3) failing to pay surcharges, (4) failing to provide proof of insurance, (5) physical or mental disqualification, (6) Prior DWI conviction, (7) Prior Reckless Driving/Speeding Ticket, (8) Vehicle abandonment on a public highway, or (9) Fault in a fatal accident. In my experience, the three most common reasons for license suspensions by New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission are “Failure to Appear in Court/Warrant“, “Failure to Pay Surcharges”, and “Prior DWI/DUI Conviction“. If for whatever reason your license was suspended, whether you knew or not, and you were stopped by police in Jackson, NJ, then you could be facing serious charges under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 for Driving While on The Revoked List.

Jackson NJ Driving While Suspended Ticket N.J.S.A. 39:3-40
Next to Driving While Intoxicated, Driving While Suspended is one of the most serious traffic violations in New Jersey. It is taken so seriously that, in certain instances, a Driving While Suspended offense can turn to a Fourth Degree Indictable Crime. Generally, a first offense Driving While Suspended/Driving While on the Revoked List, under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40, carries up to a six (6) month loss of license and $1,250 in court fines and surcharges. A second or third offense carries mandatory jail-time that can be as much as ninety (90) days, as well as increase monetary penalties. OF course, depending on the underlying reason for the suspension, these above-mentioned penalties are subject to enhancement, specifically if the suspension was for a DWI or Driving Without Insurance.
