Learn More about How Infractions Affect Your Driving Record

In New Jersey, each traffic violation is assigned a unique point value that will go on your license. With too many points, your license will be subject to suspension or revocation, and you will no longer have driving privileges. Knowing the law can help you make wise choices when you are presented with a ticket. If you face a traffic ticket, contact the New Jersey traffic ticket lawyer at Martin A. Kron & Associates, P.C. for help.

When Too Many Points Becomes a Problem

A single traffic ticket is not a serious problem. As long as you drive perfectly for the next few years, you will not have anything to worry about. However, if you have a more serious violation in the years ahead, having a prior ticket can make the consequences far worse, including skyrocketing insurance rates and more serious consequences for future infractions.

In New Jersey, having six points on your record within three years makes you subject to surcharges. Once you accumulate 12 or more points on your record, your license can be suspended.

Point values vary depending on what happened and how many other offenses are already on your driving record.

Those point values are:

  • Speeding over the limit – 2-5
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (property damage) – 2
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (with injury) – 8
  • Improper cellphone use or texting – 3 (on third offense)
  • Running a red light or stop sign – 2
  • Following too closely or tailgating – 5
  • Improper passing – 4
  • Failure to stop for a school bus – 5
  • Reckless driving – 5
