Hello, my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
I have looked this up and it appears NJSA 39:3-10 is strictly a motor vehicle offense and not a misdemeanor. Please confirm.
Maximum penalty is 60 days and/or fine $200-500.
The seatbelt offense has no possible jail time and a small fine.
Cannot seem to find the other violation in the code.
The NJSA 39:3-10 violation does not make him inadmissible so there is no immigration consequences for this traffic offense. The ICE will not come out to arrest him for these violations.
