I appeared this afternoon in the Bergen Central Municipal Court. My client was charged with Reckless Driving (39:4-96) and Racing on a Highway (39:4-52). Each of these violations carries 5 points. I was able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the Racing ticket and downgrade the Reckless Driving ticket to Careless Driving. Therefore, my client only received 2 points on his license, down from 10.
