Your valuable answers leads to the following questions:-
a. I never shared the permit (hard copy) with this unique number i.e. K3196 75300 02792 with the Police Officer during the halt, he took my IndXXXXX XXXXXcense and the IDP and retrieved this permit number from his system
b. The examination permit with this unique number i.e. K3196 75300 02792 states that "NOT VALID FOR PRACTICE DRIVING UNTIL OFFICIALLY STAMPED ON REVERSE SIDE" - and on top right side corner it mentions that 'CERTIFICATE NOT ISSUED' - what are the implications of these? There's no stamp on the back of
c. Am worried that once I 'plead guilty' and pay the penalty online and the details of these convictions are shared with the DMV; the DMV might not be able to incorporate the points to this exam permit since I guess its not a valid permit to practice driving in NJ. Not sure if this results in an arrest warrent being issued on a complaint from the DMV to the Police Department that my exam permit is not
valid to practice driving in NJ?
d. If I am not considered a 'tourist' in NJ; then how much time does a temporary working immigrant who have re-entered NJ with his valid native license and the IDP has with him to secure a local NJ driving license? In other words, can I at all drive in NJ on the basis of my India driving license and the IDP for a defined tenure as per some stipulation for a working temporary immigrant? I re-entered US
on Jan 24th '13 e.
Last but not the least, as per your recommendations, I should not appeal in the court for a 'not guilty' plea or hire a traffic attorney to fight my case? Is that correct? To be very honest, the speed limit on RT 202 is 40 Miles per hour and I was driving at somewhere between
43 to 48 miles per hour due to the following:-
a. It was a deserted road with no traffic
b. The route had very few street lights
c. A white car was tailgaiting my car and I got scared with the thoughts of carjacking since I was driving with my Wife and 21.5 months old daughter at 9:25 PM EST. Was returning from the Ridgedale Avenue Walmart store post buying
some grocery yesterday
Even the officer has ticked a cross next to the 'traffic' and the 'visibility' factors in the 'Conditions' section in the ticket number (147698). The 'Court apperence required' checkbox is not checked.
Would highly appreciate a prompt reply from your end to devise the future course of action.
