Municipalities differ. I know that police officers are discouraged from quoting how much certain citations may cost. Call the city where you were cited and they can help.
If some other person witnessed the careless driving and tells the police officer, the officer may issue a ticket. There must be a live witness to the driving in order for it to be proved at trial. In general, the mere occurrence of an accident is not in and of itself proof of careless driving. An accident might have been caused by simple negligence or through no fault at all, but careless driving is in the nature of a criminal charge and all of its elements must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. This is not to say that some officers will not issue such a ticket even without witnesses, but that ticket should be dismissed at trial, since there can be no evidence of careless driving.
One way to avoid points on a careless driving ticket is to go to court and offer to plead guilty to a lesser offense rather than forcing the municipality to go to trial on the matter. In New Jersey, it is very common to plead down to a charge of Operating a Vehicle in an Unsafe Manner. This charge carries a $250 surcharge over an above the usual fines for careless driving, but there are no points.
you will get 3 points and no your license can not be taken just for that It depends on which state you live in. In some US states, careless driving is an automatic license suspension, plus a fine and maybe, jail time. Depends on the situation and the Judge's attitude towards bad drivers. PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS GETTING THE "CARELESS" AND THE "RECKLESS" DRIVING CONFUSED.IF IT'S "CARELESS DRIVING" NO POINTS SHOULD BE ADDED. SOMETIMES A COP WILL ISSUE IT THAT WAY SO THE STATE GETS SOME MONEY BUT HE'S HELPING YOU OUT. IT'S USUALLY JUST A FINE YOU HAVE TO PAY. I HAVE 2 CARELESS DRIVING TICKETS MYSELF AND THE ONE COP EXPLAINED IT TO ME THAT HE HAS THE RIGHT TO LESSEN A CHARGE TO CARELESS DRIVING TO HELP YOU IF HE WANTS TO. HE COULD HAVE CHARGED ME "FAILURE TO YIELD RIGHT OF WAY ON ONE OF MINE AND 4 POINTS BUT TOOK IT EASY ON ME AND JUST CHARGED THE CARELESS DRIVING $130 AND NO POINTS. MY BROTHER IS A HIGHWAY PATROLMAN SO I KNOW THIS WAS TRUE BECAUSE I HAD ALREADY CALLED HIM TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN BEFORE THE COP GOT THERE. NOW A "RECKLESS DRIVING" CHARGE IS MUCH WORSE AND I'M NOT SURE OF THE POINTS VIOLATION IN YOUR STATE BUT IT CAN'T BE GOOD BECAUSE IT'S A MAJOR TICKET WHERE AS THE CARELESS IN A MINOR INFRACTION..
Hi, I got a Careless Driving Ticket in October 9, 2012. My insurance rates went very high, however, I was notified this ticket has been corrected to Interference with Traffic with no Demerit points. My insurance company won't lower my rates. Is there any recourse I can do? I am not guilty of Careless Driving, so why must I pay for it? Best Regards, Shari
In NJ, a careless driving ticket where there is no physical injury carries a fine of $85.00 if a court appearance is optional and the driver pleads guilty without a hearing. For a conviction after a hearing the penalty is a fine of between $50 and $200 or up to 15 days imprisonment or both. In addition, the driver is assessed two points.
There is no specific "unsafe lane change" in NJ, so the ticket may be for careless driving or simply failure to use the turn signal. In hte event an accident occurred, the ticket would almost certainly be for careless driving. The fines for each will vary by the local municipal court. The turn signal fine could run from $25 to $100, with the careless driving fine from $50 to $250. However, what is worse is the careless driving is a moving violation, which will place points on your license (these will be placed there even if you are unlicensed completely and will last for years). The points will result in higher insurance costs for years and can result in loss of license.
