Is NJ ticket code 39:4-67 "OBSTRUCTING TRAFFIC" considered

Resolved Question:

Is NJ ticket code 39:4-67 "OBSTRUCTING TRAFFIC" considered a moving violation?
I recieved it while on Rte 80. The officer pulled me over for speeding but cut me a break with this ticket. He also said I was passing cars in the right lane. If it is considered a moving violation will it affect my restricted license in NY? I was heading to a place of employment at the time.

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer. I will be the expert that will be helping you today. I look forward to helping you solve your problem.

This is not a moving violation and would not result in points on your license.

Here is the statute of which you were charged under, which the state would have to prove, if you wanted to fight this:

39:4-67. Obstructing passage of other vehicles
or street cars prohibited; clearance of intersections
No vehicle or street car shall be permitted by the owner or driver thereof to so occupy a street as to interfere with or interrupt the passage of other street cars or
vehicles, nor shall the driver of a vehicle or street car drive such vehicle or
street car into an intersection if preceding traffic prevents immediate
clearance of the intersection.

Will NJ inform the NY DMV of this violation?

It would likely appear on your record but they would not necessarily go out of there way to inform them. Since it does not result in points, it should not have an effect on your restricted license.
