Select one of the following options:

Pay the Ticket in full
By just paying the fine, you plead guilty to the ticket and points will be assessed on your license. This adjudication will appear on your driving record and your insurance may be affected and/or cancelled.
Elect a Defensive Driving Course
By electing traffic school, you pay for the ticket but 2 points are removed from your license. This can be an effective way of saving money on insurance costs and surcharge fees on your license.
Contest the Ticket in Court
If you choose to contest the ticket, you must notify the court to set up a date to go before a judge. You will be given further instructions by the court. Failure to appear will result in a warrant for your arrest.

New Jersey law gives you three options regarding your citation. You must exercise one of them before your deadline on the ticket, or be subject to a late fee and possible other actions including suspension of your driver license. Even if you feel you deserved the ticket, you may be eligible to elect traffic school to keep it off your record, avoid the points and prevent the violation from raising your insurance rates.
