Q: Traffic ticket amended to '39:5B-32 QUALIFICATION OF INTRSTATE VEHICLES; RULES & REGULATION'. What does this mean?
IN NJ I received a citation for the moving violation '39:4-88B TRAFFIC ON MARKED LANES - UNSAFE LANE CHANGE'. I ended up disputing the ticket online as I did not believe the ticket was fair to my actions as I was not making any lane changes and simply drifted to the shoulder of the road for 1-2 seconds once and fined $186.
The Municipal Prosecutor made the decision to amend the violation to '39:5B-32 QUALIFICATION OF INTRSTATE VEHICLES; RULES & REGULATION' However, I was not driving a commercial vehicle.
I am not sure what this violation means and can't find any useful information online. Therefore, I don't know if I should plead guilty and pay the possible fines for it, how much ever it may be.
The questions I have are: Does this still result in points on my driving record? What is the basic explanation of the 39:5B-32 violation and how serious is it?
The long and short of it is that this is a not a point violation.
In essence, this is what you are pleading guilty to:
no person shall operate a commercial motor vehicle, as defined in rules adopted pursuant to this section, in this State unless the operation of the commercial motor vehicle is in accordance with the rules adopted by the Superintendent of State Police pursuant to this section.
They are using the section as a plead down statute that has no points and the Judge can set the fine
