Q: 39:4-67 Obstructing passage of other vehicles
I entered the NJ garden state parkway and immediately there was traffic in all the other lanes, the lane I entered eventually starts to become an exit lane but there's no room for me to swap lanes. About 3/4 of the way I managed to get over before my lanes turned into a shoulder lane, so I either exit or change lanes, so I change lanes on the dotted white lines before it changed. I get pulled over by a state trooper in East Orange and he gave me a warning for improper passing and gave me a ticket for obstructing passage of other vehicles. Did I really do anything wrong? Should I plea not guilty?
