This is a moving violation and there are two points assessed if you are adjudicated guilty. As far as the number being on the back, they have to provide that to you in case you want to challenge the ticket. A driver can have up to three points subtracted from their driver's record if they are good drivers. A driver can have up to three points removed from their driver's record, if they have no ticket for 12 consecutive months. A driver can never have their point total reduced below zero. A driver can also have two points removed from his record if he completes a MVS Driver Improvement Program. These programs are only offered to problem drivers.

I noticed in your title you were also looking for the amount of the fine. The amount varies and that is another reason the amount was not put on the ticket. the statutory language reads: 39:4-88 Failure to drive properly in marked lanes-Fine or imprisonment not exceeding 15 days, or both $50-$200 2 DMV points and 2 additional car insurance points. You are to call the number on the back of the ticket to find out the amount. You can also use the number in case you would like to challenge the ticket. You might as well try because if the officer does not show up, you just ask the judge to dismiss your case and he has to. I would say the officers do not show up about 75% of the time--so you have a good shot! If the officer does show up, you can ask the judge to withhold adjudication and if he does, you will not get any points on your license or insurance.
