Bayonne City

Traffic and Criminal Offenses

Town Overview

The town of Bayonne is home to nearly 62,000 residents and forms the southern tip of Hudson County in the State of New Jersey. It is believed that the French settlers named this town Bayonne after the city of Bayonne in France. Other theories suggest that the town might have gotten this name because it was ‘Bay-on’ meaning literally on the shores of two bays. The famous Bayonne Bridge was once considered to be the longest steel arch bridge in the world. The new river George Bridge built in 1978 displaced it from it’s first position. The town has 10 elementary schools, many parks and recreation centers, several shopping centers, medical facilities and private gyms. Bayonne’s population is far more diverse than it’s neighbors, with each group contributing something to the town’s present-day cultural character. Bayonne’s southern border is closer to Staten Island than any piece of land in the state of New York. Many offenses in Bayonne occur in residential areas. The Bayonne Borough Police maintain speed traps and check points on a fairly regular basis.Raymond Albert Raya, Esq. appears in Bayonne City Municipal Court on a regular basis for private clients. With his breath of experience, Raymond Albert Raya, Esq. knows how to defend your rights and to successfully resolve your motor vehicle charge or criminal offense in Bayonne Township.  Whether the offense is Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Possession of Drugs/CDS or a minor moving violation, Raymond Albert Raya, Esq. possesses the unique insight and personal contacts to help you through this ordeal. Contact our office for a free consultation to see what we can do for you.
