Quicker Way To Issue Traffic Tickets In N.J. Towns

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ (WCBS 880) – In Mountainside, police have gotten quicker at handing out traffic tickets.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reports

“With the e-ticketing process, it takes a matter of seconds,” police chief Jim Debbie told WCBS 880 reporter Levon Putney.

Debbie says his officers are now printing tickets instead of writing them with the new system, which is connected to the state database, and can send ticket information straight to the courts.

Debbie says, “It’s more convenient for the poor person getting the ticket, it’s more convenient for the officer, and its more convenient for the municipality.”

He says about seven police forces use e-tickets now in the state, but says more departments are getting them.
