Judge Kollar Reigns S Upreme Essay

615 words - 2 pages

On Wednesday, April 25, 2001, Judge Charles J. Kollar, of North Brunswick Municipal Court, was confronted with a variety of motor vehicle related cases. From reckless driving to driving without a registration and everything in between, some of the cases I listened to are summarized below.

I think the fine is rather high for a silly offense and the driver going slow and causing this should have also been ticketed. The second case I viewed had multiple fines. The driver pleaded guilty and received a $50 fine for unsafe driving, a $300 fine for driving without insurance, a $30 fine for driving without a license and $60 in court costs.

In addition to the fines, Kollar suspended the driver's license for one year. I think the fines were fair and the driver got what he deserved, but I think that the license suspension was a lot for a first time offense, however not knowing the circumstances of the unsafe driving, it may not have been a moderate judgment. The third case involved a woman who did not wear her seatbelt and had a licensing charge against her....
