Traffic Violation Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Got a ticket tonight in NYC making an illegal turn. Does anyone know how it works with an out of state license - will the points transfer to my NJ drivers license? If they do I am phucked!!!

According to this page ,you may get two points on your NJ record. If you are approaching a license suspension threshold you may want to speak to an attorney who specializes in traffic tickets.

fight the ticket and hope the cop doesn't show

What I am about to say is not legal advice. it is purely for informational purposes and is based on hypothetical facts. You should consult an attorney familiar with your particular facts and circumstances who can provide specific advice regarding your particular situation.

Having said that, what happens when someone is convicted in another state, say NY, is that the court in NY sends a record of the judgment of conviction to the MVC in NJ. If the MVC feels that there is an NJ violation that is similar enough to the violation in NY, they can give the person the number of points that the similar NJ violation would carry.

So, for example, say the person was convicted of Careless Driving in NY. In NJ, careless driving carries 2 points, so the MVC could (but doesn't have to) give the person 2 points on their NJ license.

Thread resurrection, but what if I didn't actually make an illegal turn, but the nyc cop gave me the ticket anyway? I merged first but he wasn't it a vantage position to see that. Will this be an easy fight when they check the cameras? What if the camera didn't record or something?

They've already deleted the video. You're guilty until proven innocent. Remember that next time you judge some other poor asshole charged with a crime.
