    Post Careless Driving in New Jersey

    I was involved in an accident in NJ, without personal injury, and the officer issued me a careless driving ticket. I tried to pay online because court appearance required was not checked off, but the website said I was ineligible to pay online. I called the court and they said that careless driving in NJ has a mandatory court appearance requirement.

    If I am pleading guilty, why do I have to go to court?

    What happens when I get there?

    Can I be charged with any other offense?

    I wish I could just pay the fine and get this whole thing over with?

    You're charged with careless driving; that appears to be a two point infraction. The court requires an appearance; you can ask the court why they believe that's necessary. When you go there, unless you were instructed otherwise, you will likely be given the opportunity to enter a plea or contest the ticket. If you go in, plead guilty and pay the fine (and accept the points), that should resolve the matter.
