Careless Driving

The O'Donnell Law Firm appears in Municipal Courts throughout Central and Northern New Jersey defending drivers charged with motor vehicle offenses, including careless driving.

N.J.S.A. 39:4-97 defines careless driving as “a person who drives a vehicle carelessly, or without due caution and circumspection, in a manner so as to endanger, or be likely to endanger, a person or property, shall be guilty of careless driving.”  A person convicted of careless driving will receive a 2-point violation. 

Careless driving tickets are typically issued when a driver operates a vehicle in an aggressive manner or in such a manner as disregarding the care and safety of others.  Examples include frequent lane changing or weaving in and out of traffic, texting while driving or using a handheld mobile phone while driving, driving with excessive speed, failure to yield, and disregarding traffic signs.  


For 31 years Jackie O'Donnell has successfully defended motorists charged with careless driving.  Appearing in Municipal Courts in Sussex County, Morris County, Union County, Middlesex County, Bergen County, Passaic County and elsewhere throughout New Jersey, Ms. O'Donnell offers a free initial consultation and case evaluation.  Contact the O'Donnell Law Firm today for a free consultation.
