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.
It would take an extremely deft criminal to evade tolls numbering in the many thousands of dollars without being caught. To accumulate that many toll violations, the crimes would have had to occurred over a number of years of heavy driving. It seems impossible, but a recent case in New Jersey involves allegations of exactly that. Supposedly, one man's traffic violations have piled up so much that he owes nearly $88,000.
As traffic stops gone wrong have been in the news more and more frequently, it is important for those in New Jersey to understand the rights they have when interacting with law enforcement officers. As nj.com reports, regardless of the conditions a driver is going through, including speeding to the hospital, if an officer signals to pull over the driver must comply. Even if the driver has a legitimate reason for his or her actions, the officer does not know this at the time, and refusing to pull over could leave the driver vulnerable to charges.
