Court rule 7:12-1. Trial Date; Adjournment

7:12-1. Trial Date; Adjournment

The date fixed for the trial of any traffic offense shall be not less than five days from the date of its commission unless the defendant, having been informed of the right to such trial date, waives it and the court in its discretion fixes an earlier date. If a hearing is adjourned, the court may detain the defendant in safe custody, unless the defendant makes a cash deposit or gives a recognizance in accordance with R. 7:4 in an amount not exceeding $500, or qualifies and justifies in real estate security situated in this State in twice the amount fixed for the bail.
