Pennington, NJ asked in Traffic Tickets for New Jersey

Q: are there any points associated to the violation of traffic regulation section 39:3A-1?

We got a ticket a couple of days ago related to 39:3A-1 (Television screen visible to driver) and was wondering if there were any points related to this violation. The ticket says non-payable offense so will go to the court but we were not sure if there were points that we need to clear up.

A: As far as I know, this is not a point offense and the fine is discretionary in the amount with the Judge and prosecutor. There is a movement to try and make this a point violation along the lines of a distracted driving offense. Apologize to the Court, and try and get out of there with the lowest fine possible
