Speeding tickets are the bulk of court cases heard in Teaneck, but you will also hear matters involving people charged with improper passing of a school bus, DWI, driving while suspended, no insurance, simple assault, and possession of controlled dangerous substances or CDS. Depending on one’s NJMVC certified driving abstract and criminal record, these charges can carry mandatory jail time, loss of license, and a criminal case history.
The NJ State Troopers do handle some Teaneck law enforcement duties however the local Teaneck, NJ Police Department is primarily responsible for most summonses and arrest warrants. The Teaneck DUI matters could involve either law enforcement agency.
