Re: Violation of Probationary License in New Jersey
Ok. So, from what I can find with a quick google search, the penalty for this offense is a $100 fine. It doesn't look like it even carries any points.
In my opinion, no.
And your defense would be what, exactly? Do you have a probationary license? Were you driving between 11:00pm and 5:00 am? Did your driving fall under any of the specifically outlined exemptions to the hours of operation requirement? If the answers are yes, yes, and no, then I see no defense.
Define "record." This charge will not result in a criminal arrest or conviction record. However, you will have a traffic violation record. Most people (employers, insurance people, etc.) will only be able to get a driving history going a few years back (don't know the specifics for your state but it is usually 3-5 years) and some states purge driving history records after a certain time (again, don't know about your state).
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
