A: A person charged under N.J.S.A. 39:3-29a faces fines and costs totaling $190, and possibly up to $440 if the person is a driver or operator of an omnibus. It is a good idea to speak on the telephone to a lawyer to review all the details.

A: The penalty range does not change no matter how many times you get convicted of this offense. That being said if the judge orders you to do something and you don't do it you could be charged with contempt of court.
