For a relatively small township, the Raritan Municipal Court does deal with its fair share of crime. In fact, it seems like the Raritan Municipal Court presides over more than 350 criminal cases and more than 50 driving while intoxicated cases each and every year. The Raritan Municipal Court, which is located at 22 1st Street, has original jurisdiction over all disorderly persons, petty disorderly persons, borough ordinances and traffic offenses that occur within the township. So, if you were issued a DWI on Route 206 or issued a criminal complaint for simple assault at Nik’s Raritan Pub, the charges will be litigated in the Raritan Municipal Court. Furthermore, since the Raritan Municipal Court has jurisdiction over all disorderly persons offenses that occur within their township, that means that the Judge has the authority to send someone to jail for six months and suspend their driving privileges for ten years. As you can tell, if you are summonsed to appear in the Raritan Municipal Court, it is not something that should be taken lightly.

Where is the Raritan Municipal Court Located?

What to Known about Raritan NJ?

Raritan Borough, not to be confused with Raritan Township, is a small little borough located almost directly in the center of Somerset County. Raritan Borough was originally incorporated back in the late 1800’s and it was considered a subdivision of Bridgewater. After a series of issues, Raritan Borough gained their independence in the 1940’s. As of 2010, the borough had a population of just under 7,000, which is up about 10% from the 2000 Census. For a relatively small borough, it does have two major roadways cutting right throughout it, Route 206 and Route 202. Those two roadways probably play a major factor in why the Raritan Municipal Court is forced to deal with about 50 drunk driving charges each and every year.
