The person I cut off was the one videoing. No one was injured. I was not contacted by the police, this happened yesterday morning.
Traffic Lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Where did it happen and why did you cut off the other motorist?

Ask Your Own Traffic Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It happened in NJ. I cut the motorist off because I was in a hurry.
Traffic Lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Do you think your license plates were captured on the video?

Did this happen on the street or highway (I understood that it happened in NJ)?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I think my license was captured. It happened on a street. With four lanes. Two in each direction.
Traffic Lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, in NJ, a motorist can report the incident to the police and police would view the video and will determine whether the cutting off captured on the video amounts to a traffic violation or even a crime and it can range from traffic violations such as improper lane change or careless driving to reckless driving which is a misdemeanor crime.

In any case, it is generally important not to make any statements about the incident to anyone and if contacted by the police not to say anything and demand to speak to a local attorney, since anything that the suspect says to the police is usually used against the suspect.

Generally, the more time passes from the time the incident took place, the less likely that it will result in any legal trouble for the driver who cut off another driver on the road.

I wish you the best of luck!
