basis in each careless driving ticket in NJ if mandatory court appearance is checked on your ticket.  Even
though each careless driving ticket must meet the same statutory elements some offenses will weigh in at
the highest end of the scale while others do not.  The seven factors the judge must determine before
suspending a drivers license or imposing jail for a careless driving ticket in NJ are:
  1. The Nature and Circumstances of the driver's actions
  2. The driver's previous driving record
  3. The amount of time that has passed since the last driving infraction
  4. The driver's character and attitude
  5. Whether the conduct of careless driving is likely or unlikely to happen again
  6. Any excessive hardship the sentence would cause
  7. The need for personal deterrence
