Reckless driving

A person who is guilty of first-time reckless driving can be imprisoned up to 60 days in county or municipal jail and/or fined between $50 and $200. A second or subsequent conviction of the same offense will result in imprisonment up to three months and/or a fine of $100 to $500.

Unsafe Lane Change; N.J.S.A. 39:4-88 mandates that when a roadway is divided into clearly marked lanes, a vehicle must be driven within a single lane.

In addition, a vehicle shall normally be driven in the lane closest to the right hand edge of the roadway, except when overtaking another vehicle or when preparing for a left turn.

However, "preparing for a left turn" does not allow indefinite travel in the left lane.

In short, the right lane is designated for slow moving vehicles while the left lane is designated for faster moving vehicles.

Conviction of this offense carries a fine up to $200 although the fine may be doubled in a construction zone, safe corridor or 65 MPH zone.

Defendant may be incarcerated up to 15 days although courts never exercise such extreme discretion for this offense.

Although courts are not required to suspend a license following a conviction for making an unsafe lane change, courts may exercise such discretion upon finding that the violation was willful.

The suspension period is left to the discretion of the court.

Again, courts never exercise such extreme discretion following such a charge.

In addition, two motor vehicle and two insurance points attach to a conviction of this offense.

A good alternative plea is pleading guilty to obstructing traffic N.J.S.A 39:4-67.

If the prosecutor does not grant that request then unsafe driving N.J.S.A 39:4-97.2 should be considered, although it should be noted that unsafe driving carries an approximate fine of $400.

Additionally, four points are assessed on one's driving record for a third unsafe driving conviction within five years of a second unsafe driving conviction.

New Jersey - 39:3-74 Obstruction of Windshield for Vision

Every motor vehicle having a windshield shall be equipped with at least one device in good working order for cleaning rain, snow or other moisture from the windshield so as to provide clear vision for the driver, and all such devices shall be so constructed and installed as to be operated or controlled by the driver.

No person shall drive any motor vehicle with any sign, poster, sticker or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, wings, deflectors, side shields, corner lights adjoining windshield or front side windows of such vehicle other than a certificate or other article required to be so displayed by statute or by regulations of the commissioner.

No person shall drive any vehicle so constructed, equipped or loaded as to unduly interfere with the driver's vision to the front and to the sides.

This is a fine but no points ticket, this is the one you would want to plead too and get some of the others drooped with points.

A good lawyer can maybe cut these four tickets into two I hope.

I appreciate the chance to help you , sorry the other expert left.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
