Hello again, Joao.

Do you have a citation to the vehicle code on the citation which you can provide me?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

summons#av236328 violation39:3-37.1(B)

Hello again, Joao, and thank you for providing this additional information.

That section of the code provides:

39:3-37.1 Unlawful loan of license, vehicle; penalty.


a. A person who has been issued a driver's license shall not lend that driver's license for use by another person.

b. A person who owns, leases or otherwise has control or custody of a motor vehicle registered under the provisions of this title shall not allow that motor vehicle to be operated by an unlicensed driver.

c. The penalty for a violation of this section shall be a fine of not less than $200 or more than $500, imprisonment for not more than 15 days, or both.

Here is a link to the code:

Because it provides for potential imprisonment, it would be best to retain a local traffic/criminal law attorney to represent you at the hearing and prepare your best defense to avoid the harshest penalties.
