The Jersey City Municipal Court is one of the busiest Municipal Courts in the State. Jersey city is the second largest city in New Jersey. Jersey City is densely populated and many major roadways wind their way around and through Jersey City. The proximity of the Holland Tunnel, Rt. 1 & 9, the New Jersey Turnpike, etc. provide both local and state police ample opportunity to issue thousands of traffic violations (traffic tickets) each year. Additionally, there are an abundance of criminal complaints filed each year for a variety of disorderly persons offenses.
