Asked in Traffic Tickets for Delaware

Q: What are points and insurance impact for Delaware Licensed drivers on getting tickets in other state for e.g New Jersey

Hello,

I'm a Delaware licensed driver with with clean record.

Recently when I was passing through New Jersey returning back to Delaware, I was stopped and given two tickets in New Jersey

a) Improper Passing for Passing on the Right (4 Point in NJ)

b) Speeding Ticket for going 65 Mph on a 55 Mph zone. (2 Point in NJ)

I was going through US Route 1 in the Middle lane and the car in front of me was going slow and there were cars on the left lane so moved over to the Right lane unaware of the New Jersey No Passing on the Right law. I was given Improper passing tickets for this and the officer also gave me a ticket saying I was going 65 in 55 Mph zone.

The tickets come to a total of 180$ (85$ and 95$) but I'm not sure about the impact it will have on my Delaware license points and Insurance and otherl hidden costs.

Should I fight the two tickets or plead guilty and pay the fine. I'm not sure on the implications and possible outcome.

Thanks.
