New Jersey driver charged with traffic violations

An apparent incident involving a school bus has resulted in charges for one man. The New Jersey resident was charged with multiple traffic violations. The individual facing these charges is likely preparing a criminal defense in hopes to get the charges reduced or dropped in order to avoid certain penalty. 

The event occurred on a Thursday around 5 p.m. A police officer allegedly saw the man fail to yield to a school bus as it approached him. He was stopped by police, and authorities investigated the cause of his alleged traffic violation. 

Police apparently found the man to be intoxicated. He was charged with failure to display a front license plate, driving while intoxicated, consuming a beverage in a motor vehicle, improper use of horn, failure to stop at a stop sign and following too closely. The multiple charges certainly will come with penalties for the driver if he would be convicted. He was taken into custody and later released into the care of a family member. 

The man will have his day in municipal court in which he will be able to argue his side of the events. In New Jersey, he can choose to do that alone, but it is far more likely that he will prepare his criminal defense against the traffic violations with the aid of an attorney. An experienced criminal defense lawyer is familiar with the particular laws of the state and will be able to navigate the legal process with his or her client in hopes of getting the best legal outcome for the individual.
